    As for the effectiveness, etc., of the medicine, it has worked. The prescription was changed to another brand about 1 1/2 years ago.

    The last time I spent $100 on a small tube. If I knew the cost had escalated, I would not have purchased. (I try to use it sparingly because of possible side affects.) Today I called Kroger pharmacy to check the price & it was $221!! Again Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance did not cover anything. I said CANCEL MY PRESCRIPTION. I will NEVER purchase Premarin cream again.

    Just as I was starting my second week I read an article on PMU mares, it is their hormones (conjugated) that are harvested to make Premarin. I could not believe the horrible lives these horses lead just to make a pharma company rich. I flushed them down the toilet.

    I had heard mixed things about Premarin because it contains conjugated estrogens. I did some research and once I found out what they were I decided not to take it.

    Only got 15 doses out of a "30" dose tube and ran out one month early! Sexual intercouse noticeable better after one months of starting treatment. Next tube I plan on carefully measuring for actual dosage that comes out!
