Premarin Tablets Information
Premarin Tablet dosage
Premarin is available in 0.3 mg, 0.45 mg, 0.625 mg, 0.9 mg, and 1.25 mg tablets. The dosage depends on the condition being treated. For example, 0.3 mg may be given once a day for estrogen deficiency.
Estrogen deficiency can cause vasomotor symptoms and atrophic vaginitis in menopausal and postmenopausal women. It is usually taken as either a continuous daily regimen or a cyclic regimen, meaning, for example, it is taken for 3 weeks and then paused for 1 week. A dosage of 0.3 mg or 0.625 daily is given for the prevention of osteoporosis and treatment of female hypogonadism.
The dosage and indication it will be used for will be determined by your doctor. Dosage will also be adjusted as needed, depending on a person’s response and tolerance.
How Premarin works
Premarin is a hormone replacement therapy and contains conjugated estrogens. Estrogen is a hormone produced by the ovaries before menopause. Menopause occurs naturally in women, and during this stage in a woman's life, the body produces less estrogen.
This can cause symptoms such as hot flashes, dryness, discomfort of the vagina and painful coitus. Some women develop osteoporosis during or after menopause.
What Premarin Tablet is used for
Premarin is an estrogen derivative prescribed to treat the symptoms of menopausal vasomotor symptoms, atrophic vaginitis/kraurosis vulvae, female hypogonadism, osteoporosis, prostate cancer, breast cancer, abnormal uterine bleeding, and primary ovarian failure. It helps to relieve the discomfort experienced during and after menopause.
It also helps prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Tablets are swallowed whole by mouth; they are not to be crushed, split, or crushed.
