Prempro review

Prempro is for various menopausal symptoms including vaginal dryness, irritation, and hot flashes. Prempro is the female hormone required for various body processes.


Women with symptoms of menopause are often prescribed Prempro. Additionally, patients that like to prevent osteoporosis when postmenopausal are advised to take Prempro. This medication is for those patients who lack natural estrogen. At times, Prempro is used for cancer treatment in men and women.

Prempro is available under the brand names Enjuvia, Cenestin, Premarin, and Ogen.


Prempro is taken daily. Healthcare professionals may prescribe a different dosage based on the condition being treated, such as use for 3 weeks to be followed by a week off.

Prempro can be taken on an empty stomach. Patients should take the medicine at the same time each day so they won’t forget taking the medication.

Patients should take Prempro regularly in order to get the most benefits from the medicine.

In the event of a missed dosage, take Prempro as soon as remembered. If it is almost time for the next dosage, skip the missed dosage and take the medication as scheduled. Never take more than one dose to make up for a missed dosage.


Patients may experience side effects including lightheartedness, dizziness, headache, nausea, bloating, weight change, change in libido, and breast tenderness. Immediately consult your healthcare professional if any of these symptoms persist.

Some rare but severe side effects include changes in mood, breast lumps, swollen feet or hands, vaginal bleeding such as spotting and recurrent blooding, unusual discharge in the vagina, persistent nausea, vomiting, increased urination or thirst, worsening incidents of seizure, and dark urine.

Taking Prempro can cause serious side effects including blood clots, heart attacks, and stroke. Patients should immediately seek medical attention if they experience sudden headaches, weakness on a part of the body, pain in the left arm, slurred speech, vision problems, difficulty in breathing, coughing up of blood, and sudden dizziness.


Patients should consult with their healthcare professional regarding their medical condition prior to taking Prempro. Patients with vaginal bleeding, a history of stroke, blood clots, liver disease, and certain cancers may be putting themselves at risk if they take Prempro.

Patients should give their complete medical history to their healthcare professional before taking Prempro. Patients with a history of asthma, breast cancer, diabetes, migraine headaches, seizures, heart disease, kidney disease, mental disorders, and high blood pressure could be at risk if they take Prempro.

Prempro can make a patient dizzy so they should not drive, operate dangerous machinery, or perform activities requiring alertness. It is also advised that patients limit their alcohol consumption while taking Prempro.
