Common Questions and Answers about Premarin topical

premarin

Hello, It is never advisable to use any topical or oral medicine without a doctor’s guidance. What you are having is vaginal dryness. Vaginal dryness can be due to low estrogen levels - seen during menopause, stopping birth control medications, having a baby, or as a side effect of certain medications. Also, high levels of stress can cause vaginal dryness. Cigarette smoking can also cause vaginal dryness. Rarely medical conditions like sjogrens syndrome can cause these symptoms.
I have very bad hot flashes, one doctor prescribed Premarin, another Yazmin, wich pill should I take???? I take 50 mg. of captopril for hight blood pressure, the rest of my health is good.
In addition, some creams contain an inactive progesterone precursor that the human body can't metabolize. Many topical forms of progesterone -- gels, lotions, creams -- are made at compounding pharmacies. Some can be purchased over the counter at health food stores. Such progesterone creams are not strong enough to raise blood levels sufficiently to protect the endometrium from estrogen stimulation.

OB/GYN prescribe premarin cream for topical use. It stopped the cracking skin and eased the itching. However, the anal stuff has not gone away. The cream temporarily ease the itching and now have spots on my buttock. The spots dont itch just the anal area and the skin in my anal area has gotten really dark. Could this be dermotological or parasitic? Help!!!!
The itching is especially bad at night and I tear even with gentle wiping or looking to see what hurts. My gynecologist told me to use premarin topical cream for 2 weeks and then vagifem. I don't understand the use of estrogen when I'm on anti anti-estrogen. I also am having problems with headaches and vision (blurring, nystagmus, dryness and redness). Has anybody else had these symptoms and how did you treat them? Can any body explain the estrogen conflict please?
The blood test came back positive for herpes (1 and 2 I believe) the culture came back negative. The doctor gave me premarin cream....which wasn't working. He then gave me a corticosteroid cream which worked but dried me out (had to use vaseline as well) every time I stopped using it, I would get itchy again and my lips would start getting dry, sometimes getting papercut like tears, and flaky.
In Canada, after many years of taking Premarin, my doctor replaced this prescription with something labeled CES on the label. He told me that CES was a synthetic form of estrogen. Now that I've moved to Mexico, my doctor here doesn't know what I'm talking about and has put me back on Premarin, which is very expensive here. Can anyone tell me what the full name of CES is and/or where I can find more information about it? Thanks so much!
I am 76 years old and was taken off premarin about 6 years ago and have had severe hot flashes every 45 minutes since that time. For the past couple of years I have been getting a pinply rash inside my elbows. It doesn't itch, but is angry looking. It appears when I am having a hot flash and disappears only after it heals as any rash would. Could this indicate something in my system that causes it to appear with the wetness I get from the hot flash?
So I read up on Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy - Suzanne Sommers has a couple of books out that help clean up alot of my doubts I have now been on a topical Progesterone Cream for 6 months. I started with 30 mg., but I got hot flashes with that strength. I had it reduced to 20 mg. and I am period-free and no other negative symptoms Ie.) Headaches, moodiness, hot flashes, tiredness...nothing! Check this out in your area - there is bound to be an individual who can help you! ps.
Urologist says no big deal. Mentioned prolapse. Prescribed Premarin to be applied topically directly to the bulge 3x a week to make it shrink. Considering it was 18 months after the hysterectomy and sling, did the surgery encourage the bulge? Or did the injections for incontinence possibly cause it? Is the topical Premarin the normal action to take for the bulge?
Over the Thanksgiving holiday 2007, I developed a visual disturbance in my left eye, as though I were looking through a white cloud. The following Monday, my ophthalmologist told me that I had a posterior, subcapsular cataract which, I'm told, is quite aggressive. I was told I was not a candidate for a multifocal lens, and was given a monofocal lens on 12/20/07. During the procedure, the IV sedation failed, as my IV had infiltrated and was not checked by the NA.
Also, you might want to ask your doctor about topical vaginal estrogens like Vagifem or Premarin Cream. These go straight to the source, and I've heard a lot of women say that they can really help. As far as the dry eyes, I have no idea!
I am a 17+ year suvivor of ovarian cancer. I refuse to take premarin, but need something. I am most interested in exploring bioidentical hormones, however I have been unable to find a physician who incorporates this into their practice. I am in New Orleans, but am willing to travel to find the right physician for me. Can you please advise? Thank you.
It will make you feel better also... comes in quite a few different doses, it does NOT have any horse urine estrogen. (Premarin is made from pregnant mares urine and is the Estrogen that caused the problems in the recent testing) Nor does Climara contain any synthetic progestins. Bio-identical means it is exactly the same estrogen as your body makes.
This week I had a UTI, and they put me on Nitrofur, and I was put on Premarin and a new brand of synthroid. I have had muscle aches, twitching and numbness and tingling in the legs, and sometimes arms and then two days ago, the weirdest foggiest feeling in my head. Flu like symptoms, and lack of sleep. And I have been kind of anxious and depressed. And I am not normally that way. I stopped the Premarin on Wed, and the Nitrofur on Thursday. Am wondering now about the synthroid.
In this case, yes, oral estrogen (i.e. Premarin) should be avoided. I have a few other thoughts here. Firstly, the use of topical estrogen cream in patients felt to be "high risk" for breast cancer is somewhat controversial. It has no where near the systemic absorbtion of a oral medication. There are other options to consider. The first is Evista.
Second opinion confirmed that I had a prolapsed uterous but therapy was a possibility. She put me on Premarin topical cream and sent me to Physical THerapy letting me know there is a 60% chance of strenthening my pelvic floor. The therapy was great and then started having irregular periods and then anytime I had intercource or bear down I would bleed. Then it never stopped. My gyno sent me for an ultrasound. My ultrasound showed that my uterous and endometrium was enlarged.

The best treatments are prescription strength - premarin cream, vagifem inserts ( prescription - not to be confused with the otc product ) and the estrogen ring are the 3 most common treatments.
Last year at this time I was taking Premarin (same thing, but with no progesterone) to help with the horrible hot flashes and mood swings that I had been dealing with since my hysterectomy in January of '08. The hormones worked pretty well, I noticed a big reduction in the hot flashes, but like you I was having terrible pain in my breasts, and also in my joints.

if you are testing negative for vaginal infections, you might want to discuss with your gyn about using topical estrogen cream for a few months to see if that helps. Sometimes our skin tears and we can get what is called atrophic vaginitis ( google it ). It typically occurs in post menopausal women but even younger gals can get it. It causes the skin to thin and tear more easily as well as be irritated.
since some women do take Premarin, estrogen only, after hysterectomy). Like you, I would not take Premarin anyway...but, I have been asked by doctors why I take progesterone since I don't have a uterus. This is where all the confusion starts ...and, continues. We need progesterone for our brains, for the soft muscle tissue (I am avoiding bladder surgery thanks to the progesterone) cholesterol and thyroid...just to name a few...oh, bone health, too....Please look into it.
My doctor prescribed premarin creme to put on the area, and said that the tear most likely resulted in my vaginal skin being so thin due to low estrogen levels. I apply a little amount of the creme to the spot nightly, but it has not healed. I wonder if this is not really a huge herpes sore, but think that it can't be, since it's been in the same spot since JULY and has not changed one bit!
Sinus problems are often caused by infections and antibiotics are sometimes prescribed, along with decongestents, topical nasal sprays, etc. You can help symptoms by usin a saline solution, like Ocean, or getting a neti pot and doing irrigation several times per day. You can also get OTC nasal sprays like Flonase, I believe, which are steroidal topical meds that don't enter the blood stream. DON'T use AFRIN. It's addictive and causes rebound congestion.
Not just visually looking at you, sending off specimens to the lab or looking at them themselves under the microscope? Are you still using the topical premarin? It takes up to 3 months to make a real difference and it sounds like you were only using it a few days as of your feb post? If you can gather up the address's of the clinics you were seen at in florida, your provider can fax them requests for all the studies they did and such and have them sent to be in your file too.
I was given cortisone to use vaginally twice a week and premarin. The premarin caused problems and so he stopped it. Last week he told me that I would take the cortisone the rest of my life and to come back to see him in a year. I am confused with this and am searching the internet for information. That is when I found your link. I would also like any information on this subject.
I have actually tried topical hydrocortisone and have seen temp. relief for a few days. I am starting to think it will never get better. This has been going on now for about 4 years. It is always worse right before my period as well.
A few months into this job the problem returned again and I also began to feel topical chest pains, as if my muscles were sore. I began walking to and from work every day (1 mile each way) which gave me a total of 40 minutes of exercise each day. The result was that my heartbeat, which used to be quite powerful, has become quiet and the skips are still happeneing even though I am being consistent with walking 40 minutes a day.
