Reviews for Premarin to treat Postmenopausal Symptoms
Review by lemonslice:
I had a hysterectomy 9 years ago and have been suffering with hot flashes, tired, no energy and lots of other symptoms. Went to my doctor and he did not want to give me any HRT but I could not cope anymore with some of the hot flashes tiredness no energy and numerous other symptoms so decided to go back to my doctor and ask again for something to help me this time he has prescribed me Premarin. Its early days yet but already my hot flashes are starting to subside seems to be starting to help great to at last get a tablet to help I am very pleased with the Premarin and no side effects.

Review by devante9901 (taken for 1 to 2 years):
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) - I took Prempro for two years after becoming menopausal at age 40. When it stopped working a year ago, I was changed to a daily combination of Premarin 1.25 and medroxyprogesterone 2.5. Without HRT I experience irritability and irrational rage, hot flashes, and a non-existent sex drive. The current HRT which includes Premarin, works very well for me. It is frustrating how difficult it is for a woman in her 40s to be taken seriously by the medical community for complaints of low libido. (Consider Viagra, etc. for men). Every year my doctors suggest I give up this medication therapy that increases my quality of life 100%. I'm 43 and so far I'm winning, but I expect that I will have to keep fighting.

Review by blonddraider (taken for 5 to 10 years):
Complete Hysterectomy: I was on Premarin started about 6 weeks after hysterectomy because I couldn't handle the restless leg syndrome and having to move all the time. I was put on 0.625 mg was on it from 2007 until 8 months ago. 5 weeks after doc took me off, my whole body and life went to double hockey sticks!! Anxiety, Severe! OCD crazy uncontrollable, and panic disorder through the roof. I am on Celexa 20mg daily and 1.75 mg broken into 6 doses. It works, but I don't understand it just doesn't work the same, I never had such bad OCD, anxiety, or panic like this while on and I want it back! I am gonna go get mamo if it comes back clean I'm going back on premarin! Will my life go back to normal? Will I feel like me again, and want to enjoy life? I have two appointments

I had surgery in 1995 and the other half in 2004. I have been taking Premarin since then. I am now going through a divorce. Because of depression, I stopped taking my medicines. NEVER AGAIN. The past two months have been hell without my Premarin. Not sleeping because of night sweats, hot flashes all day and just feeling like I have no energy. I have started back for 6 days now and can already feel the difference. I will never stop taking Premarin again.

Use after several years resulted in significant hair loss; had to discontinue due to this uncommon side effect.

Review by Bozzo123:
I had a hysterectomy in 1998. I had a horrible 2 years prior with night sweats, mood swings,(huge swings), irritability, then after my hysterectomy, I started taking Premarin 1.25. Have been on it ever since. For me, it is a life time therapy, that quite honestly I cannot be without. I forgot to take them once for 2 weeks, I went into such a rage, and cried, until I realized I had forgotten to get it filled. NEVER AGAIN. In my 50's my hot flashes no longer exist, my mood is even most of the time, and I enjoy the physical side of a relationship, more than I did when I was younger.

Review by curleysue:
I had a hysterectomy in 1998 and was on Premarin 0.0625 for many years then Doctor decided not good to prescribe anymore. I was so very miserable! If have to live like that -don't want to. It was terrible. No doctor knows your body like you do! And just for the record, one of my sisters is 73 yrs old aznd still has terrible hot flashes! Sometimes it looks as if she just stepped out of the shower! My mother was the same way! I am not willing to live like that! There are pro's and con's on everything!
