Premarin Tablets are a preferred supplement for providing oestrogen to the body when the ovaries are not producing enough, like during menopause.
The tablets are a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that helps prevent postmenopausal bone loss (osteoporosis) and reduce risk of fracture. Also, when natural oestrogen is lacking, due to female hypogonadism, ovarian failure, or if the ovaries have been removed, Premarin Tablets restore oestrogen levels to where they should be.
By providing extra oestrogen when the body is unable to produce enough naturally, Premarin Tablets help relieve the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, headaches, mood swings, loss of energy and lack of concentration. Premarin Tablets can also be used for male to female transsexuals, as it stimulates the development of female sexual characteristics, making it appropriate for transgender hormone therapy.
The primary ingredient is made up of a mixture of conjugated equine oestrogens, principally of the sodium salts of water-soluble sulfate esters of oestrone, equilin, and 17 alpha-dihydroequilin, together with smaller amounts of 17 alpha-oestradiol, equilenin, and 17 alpha-dihydroequilenin, 17 beta-dihydroequilin, 17 beta-dihydroequilenin, 17 beta-oestradiol and delta 8, 9-dihydroestrone.
