I have tried to quit the Premarin several times since having a complete hysterectomy in my late 40s(I am now 73) The only "side effect" was the misery when I was off of the meds-horrible hot flashes and mood swings which were intense. Needless to say, I went back on and feel fine. I just heard from my insurance that Medicare/supplement ins. will not cover the Premarin. After finding out that it wo...

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

I have had only 2 reactions from this treatment. Occasional sore breasts, and stomach acid reflex. Without it I am miserable with night sweats and hot-flashes. I have taken Premarin for 20 years, (6.25) after a complete hysterectomy at age 42, but each time I try to go off of it, the hot-flashes are miserable! So back on I go! Guess I am a lifer!

Partial hysterectomy age 45, now 71 yrs old and have reduced my Premarin to the lowest does .3 for the last ten yrs. Tried going off it at age 60. Hot flashes were bearable but had great difficulty sleeping. So I�m back on it and sleeping well so I prefer to take Premarin for the rest of my life. My bones are fine so is my weight.

Iâ??m 71 years of age. I had a total hysterectomy at the age of 38. I was placed on Premarin and remained so up to a year ago, at which time I became concerned about breast cancer and blood clots. I remained off this med the past year plus. Iâ??ve developed hot flashes, chills, foggy feeling, weight gain and fatigue. I decided to see an endocrinologist. He explained to me that I had inadvertently placed myself into menopause. He also recommended I read â??Oestrogen Mattersâ?. After doing so I made an appointment to see my gynecologist and have been placed back on my â??Premarinâ?. Happy to say doing much better.

I was prescribed this medication when I had a complete hysterectomy at 47. I am now 68 and have been on it ever since. About 10 years ago, I began having extreme vaginal and vulva discomfort to the point of desperation! I was hesitant to tell my gynecologist or anyone else about it and just tried to treat the issue myself. Finally it was just too much, so I scheduled an appt. and asked for help. I was encouraged to take my hormone replacement medication as prescribed, as I was not diligent in that area, and was prescribed a temporary additional premarin cream treatment, to get everything under control. Thank goodness!! The discomfort was immediately corrected! Just recently I began having similar symptoms and did not hesitate to consult my Dr. He increased my dosage to the 1.25 level and the problem is solved! Happy, Happy, Happy! I have had several of my friends mention similar symptoms to what I experienced who were, as I was, unfamiliar with what could be the cause other than infection. One was even seeing a urologist who was continually treating her for a urinary tract infection! I recognized the symptoms she described and suggested she see her OBGYN. She did, was prescribed Premarin. The symptoms cleared up! No more urologist visits. Women sometimes don't talk about this issue due to embarrassment and think they must have yeast infections that just won't go away, or some other condition to cause such extreme discomfort when it may just be insufficient hormones! I would give up just about any other prescription other than this one. My insurance covers it except for a copay, but if money was a factor I would do without something else!!
