Had both ovaries removed Dec 2014 due to severe endometriosis. My doc told me not to take any hormones for 4 months due to my endo possibly returning. After unbelievable hot flashes, mood swings, and anxiety to no end; I was able to get back on Premarin.

I had a full hysterectomy in 1985 due to endrimitriosis. I began Premarin about three months later and noticed a difference in my abiity to sleep and my mood. I am now 70 and take a .3 mg dose, which seems to work for me. I have energy, mental acuity, and feel good. Of course I don't have a comparison of how I would be without it, but I know I don't want to try!

I refuse to take this drug simply because of the way it is produced. Go on You Tube and watch what is done. This medication comes from pregnant horse urine. The conditions those horses live in is absolutly horrible, as soon as the foal is born it is taken away and the mare is made to keep getting pregnant. Its unbelievable
