Taking PREMPRO

How long will I be on therapy?

PREMPRO does not need to be taken for the rest of your life. Women who are using hormone therapy to manage menopausal symptoms should use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration, consistent with treatment goals and risks.

What if I miss a dose?

You'll achieve your best results with PREMPRO if you remember to take it every day, as prescribed by your healthcare professional. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double your doses.

Ask your doctor if PREMPRO is right for you.   Learn more

Scroll for Important Safety Information and Indication

Do not use estrogens, with or without progestins, to prevent heart disease, heart attacks, strokes or dementia (decline in brain function). Using estrogens, with or without progestins, may increase your chance of getting dementia, based on a study of women 65 years of age or older.

Using estrogens with progestins may increase your chances of getting heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer, or blood clots.

You and your healthcare provider should talk regularly about whether you still need treatment with PREMPRO.

PREMPRO should not be used if you have unusual vaginal bleeding; have or had cancer; had a stroke or heart attack; have or had blood clots or liver problems; have a bleeding disorder; are allergic to any of its ingredients; or think you may be pregnant.

In a clinical trial, the most common side effects (>5%) that occurred with PREMPRO were vaginal bleeding, vaginitis due to yeast or other causes, painful menstruation, breast enlargement, breast pain, and leg cramps.

INDICATIONS
PREMPRO is used after menopause to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes; to treat moderate to severe dryness, itching, and burning, in and around the vagina; and to help reduce the chances of getting osteoporosis (thin weak bones).

If you are using or are considering using PREMPRO only to treat symptoms of vaginal dryness, consider topical therapies first. If you are using or are considering using PREMPRO only to prevent osteoporosis due to menopause, talk with your health care professional about whether a different treatment or medicine without estrogens might be better for you. PREMPRO should be used at the lowest effective dose and for the shortest duration consistent with your treatment goals and risks.
