When did she start Premarin? 50 years ago?
I can't think of any reason to be on Hormone Replacement Therapy for 50 years. Frankly, long term use of HRT increases risk for cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
There may be a good reason, though. Please ask the prescribing doctor to justify this prescription.
