    I have hives, itching and blotching skin. 5 of 7 nights I still have problems sleeping. The sensitivity to sun exposure is not just awareness, it is unpleasant. Exaggerated intolerance to the heat is problematic for a gardener and outdoor enthusiast. Libido still wavers,issues of dry skin is not improved, and depression is still evident. Mood swings are less severe and emotions are more in check. ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking Premarin since 2000. I started @ the highest dose after a partial hysterectomy due to fibroids and a 2nd surgery due to pelvic abcess infection which left one ovary non functioning and with a cyst. Over the years my gyn and I have had discussions and reduced my dosage over time (currently @ .625). I tried to stop @ one point but the hot flashes, mood changes and inability to s ...

    I started taking Premarin 1.25mg following a complete hysterectomy 30 years ago. It immediately eliminated the depression I felt following the surgery. Prior to the last 6 months I did not have any problems with it. Now, however, I am experiencing a skin problem involving individual tiny bumps which itch severely.

Although my labs are within "normal" range, I reported to my ob-gyn my symptoms which were determined to be perimenapausal(fuzzy thinking, night sweats, leg discomfort and increasing moodiness). I take .3mg Premarin every other day. THANK GOD FOR THIS MEDICATION!!! I feel SOOOO much better. I've added a baby aspir ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking Premarin for 12 years since my hysterectomy and removal of ovaries. I am 69 and have gained about 25 pounds and can't lose it. I have rather severe depression (family history). I am not sure that I should still be taking it and am afraid to stop.
