Why is Premarin prescribed?
Premarin is an estrogen replacement drug. The tablets are used to reduce moderate to severe symptoms of menopause, including feelings of warmth in the face, neck, and chest, and the sudden intense episodes of heat and sweating known as "hot flashes." Cenestin tablets, containing a synthetic form of conjugated estrogens, may also be prescribed for these symptoms.
Premarin is indicated for the treatment of mild to severe vasomotor symptoms of menopause, prevention of osteoporosis, and treatment of vaginal and vulvar atrophy. Premarin has been one of the most widely used drugs in the United States. Premarin became the form of estrogen most commonly used for hormone replacement therapy.
