What is PREMPRO?
PREMPRO is a hormone therapy that contains a combination of estrogens and a progestin. It is a medication your doctor can prescribe to help you manage moderate to severe symptoms of menopause, like hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal symptoms. It is also approved for the prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis—a form of bone loss that occurs after menopause.
PREMPRO contains estrogens and a progestin and therefore is for women with a uterus who are undergoing natural menopause.
PREMPRO has been an effective treatment option for menopausal symptoms for over 15 years. Women who choose hormone therapy to manage menopausal symptoms should use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with treatment goals and risks. PREMPRO comes in several dosage strengths—including two low-dose formulations—that are designed to help you and your physician determine what dose is most appropriate for you.
Is PREMPRO right for me?
Perhaps the first thing to consider before taking PREMPRO is the severity and frequency of your menopausal symptoms. If you’re having disruptive hot flashes or night sweats, then PREMPRO may be an appropriate treatment for you.
It is equally important to review your family history with your healthcare professional prior to beginning therapy with PREMPRO. If there is a family history of heart disease, breast cancer, stroke, blood clots, or osteoporosis, be sure to tell your healthcare professional.
