Premarin without prescription

Common Questions and Answers about Premarin without prescription


Avatar f tn I also have spoken with my family doctor about alternatives but he too recommended that I stay on the Premarin. At this point, I'm not sure the Premarin is working and my family doctor has suggested that I take a saliva test to see if it is. I am not suffering hot flashes, night sweats or vaginal dryness, but I have noticed that I am not able to control my emotions very well.
Avatar f tn I still have moderate-severe hot flashes and they seem to be getting more intense with age. I switched from oral Premarin which covered me pretty well but I didn't want to be taking pills the rest of my life. Since then I have tried a variety of patches that are really not very effective on a regular basis and very expensive. At my age, what do you recommend. Is Premarin dangerous (risk of DVT). I tried to stop everything but didn't realize I was doing my body more damage than good , i.e.
Avatar n tn You can replace the progesterone with bioidentical progesterone (you can get this without a prescription) or go for prescription strenght. Please do not confuse progestin(synthetic) with progesterone. They are two totally different things.
Avatar n tn He knew specifically the area of concern and I trust that he didnt' see a cause in that area. I cannot function without the daily pain medication --believe it or not, I work, have 2 kids, husband, and finishing my bachelor's degree and working full time---I just don't like hurting constantly and people who know what's going on to look at me like I'm crazy! I know my husband gets tired of me being tired and hurting all the time.
Avatar n tn The other alternatives are creams--Premarin and Estrace vaginal creams but use them under prescription. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn Women have also found relief by taking Vitamin E 800IU daily or Vitamin B6 200mg daily, these can be purchased in a health food store without prescription, however make sure to check with your physician to make sure there is no problem with your taking them in your individual situation.
Avatar n tn Mostly have two or three a day with the pain radiating from different areas within my head. Eyesight has significantly decreased to the point I cannot read my 17 inch monitor without magnifying glasses. I do have a mild prescription bifocal reading glass but I am not able to see well with them. My doctor switched my HRT from Cenestin 0.625mg to Premarin 1.250mg due to intense night sweats. Could my headaches be caused by this switch? What about eyesight?
Avatar n tn Hi, It would not be advisable to take any medication without a clinical evaluation by a doctor and without a doctor's prescription. It would be best to schedule an appointment with a breast specialist to find out the cause of the lump your mother is having. It could be scar tissue, fat necrosis, another mass lesion which needs to be investigated further, etc.
Avatar n tn get a prescription for Premarin or Estratest HS and after one pill the night sweats will cease. I have taken HRT for fifteen years. Every couple of years I give it a break. If I start with the night sweats I go back on it. So far, I still need it. Actually, I'm much more at risk of heart attack than you are; I don't exercise and my blood pressure isn't that low. My mother took Premarin for TWENTY YEARS and never had a heart attack.
Avatar f tn Goodman, I am close to completing 6 rounds of carboplatin/taxol for stage 2c ovarian cancer. Because of the hysterectomy, I was told I should use premarin cream to prevent vaginal drying, but that I shouldn't use oral HRT because of a significant family history of breast cancer (my mom and my sister have both had breast cancer). We have all been tested for BRCA but we are negative. So my question is: Is it safe to use the premarin cream?
Avatar f tn I feel very badly for him and I just break down and cry in sheer frustration for not being able to pleasure him in that way. Doctor Number 2 wrote a prescription for Premarin and I raced to fill it. But I am not a millionaire and just cannot afford to pay $260.00 for a small tube. I'm more frustrated than ever because it seems like this is how it will be for the rest of my life.
Avatar f tn Put me on antibiotics and still had the same pain when done with the prescription. Back to the GYN and she put me on Premarin estrogen cream for two weeks. The redness and pain DID go away. But when I cut back, on her instructions, to every few days the redness and burning came back. Went to my urologist because I started to think it was a urology problem and he said I still had the UTI. Put me on another antibiotic which worked.
Avatar f tn 5 days instead of 3.5 days. These hormones are still a prescription and you need to get the prescription from your doctor. There is also a weekly patch called Climara which is what I might try next if this plan doesn't work. There are great books out there, the one Im reading right now is called Screaming to be heard by Dr Vliet. You should check it out. I know how miserable it is to feel like you do. I wish I could give you a big hug from Boston. Let me know if you have any more questions.
Avatar f tn I had surgical menopause at age 29... on Hrt premarin for 20 off it at age 50 and been in menopause of course since then... I wonder if you ever out live menopause..what do you think I know women in their seventies on HRT..and having same problems as me ..dryness, sweating, mood swings and hot flashes...that are unbearable... I have used vagifem....tablets which you can look at on the internet to read about them..a hormone tablet inserted into the vagina... They are costly..
135691 tn?1271100723 Can you buy Progesterone cream over the counter or will I need a prescription? And, will lowering my dosage of Premarin (I'm actually really happy on Premarin, other than the weight gain) help me to lose some of the weight? HELP!
Avatar f tn Like Cathy I also had a complete hysterectomy when I was 30, due to medical issues. The docs can check your estrogen level via a simple blood test, which is how the doc determined the amount of estrogen prescription. There are so many "opinions" regarding HRT so I won't even go down that path!. Replacement treatment has been a god send for me, but that is a very personal decision that each person needs to make for herself after reading all the info available.
Avatar n tn 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.
405824 tn?1201821554 Frankly, I am not a fan of HRT ...Premarin, Provera, Prempro, which is Premarin and Provera together, and many women have had problems with these drugs. As far as the bioidentical hormones are concerned, when you are out of balance (estrogen and Progesterone in balance is key) you can run into problems...
Avatar n tn At the time they diagnosed it as contusion to the chest wall and gave me a prescription of Soma and Loritab. 3 days later the pain nor swelling had gone away so I went into my own Dr. He noticed a lump above my nipple on my left breast and the swelling underneath my breast. I was sent over for a CT angiogram and scheduled a mammagram for next Tuesday. He spoke of the possibility of mastitis being the cause for the swelling and placed me on both viral and bacterial medication.
1258539 tn?1293843802 My first dr just gave me prescription- premarin without checking any levels at all. It made me WORSE!! After getting my hormones checked I found I was estrogen dominant and she had given me MORE estrogen- that is why I was worse. I needed progesterone to balance the estrogen. It does take some time for the bioidenticals to work, but within several weeks it should help.
Avatar m tn The waste bin of science is full of fallen heroes like Premarin, Vioxx and Avandia (which alone was responsible for 47,000 excess cardiac deaths since it was introduced in 1999). That brings us to the latest apparent casualty, vitamins. The recent media hype around vitamins is a classic case of drawing the wrong conclusions from good science.
Avatar n tn I cannot believe that doctors would still put their patients on Premarin. I personally would not take it. It is synthetic. There are much better hormone replacements. I am on the Estraderm patch... doctor is FDA approved and bioidentical.
Avatar n tn My doctor talked with the pharmacist, and authorized a prescription. It takes approx. three months for progesterone to leave your system, so I was told that it would take about three months for it to build back up. After all, I went three months after the surgery feeling kind of Okay. However, I noticed a difference after about a month. After the second month I cried for about a week because I could not believe how wonderful I was feeling again.
Avatar n tn I have mitral valve prolapse and take Toprol 10 mg each day. The only other prescription I take is Premarin 250 mg. Do I need to see a doctor or just not worry? Thank you for your time. Dear Deb, It sounds like you need to see your doctor for further evaluation. A fair portion of MVP patients experience tachycardias, all of which need to be investigated, and some treated.
Avatar f tn So, what can this be??? Outbreak?? Just wanted to know if anyone has ever experienced this. I take Valtrex during outbreaks. The cuts/tears only last a few days and heal on their own without a trace. Thanks for all your help.
Avatar f tn My question is, is there anything I can take, either prescription, or natural substance that will help with the mood swings, hot flashes, etc., etc. that go along with menopause? I've heard that a lot of the herbal things that other people take are not liver friendly. I'm also wondering if they'd be safe to take on treatment? I heard that black cohash is not liver friendly. Anyway, I'm thinking about stopping the estrogen in Jan., when it's not as hot outside.
Avatar f tn Went to doctor #4 who gave me a prescription for a cream mixture for hyderm (anti-inflammatory incase its an allergy reaction) and clotrimaderm (anti-fungal incase its a yeast, even though both my yeast tests came back negative). I've been told that if it works, my symptoms should improve rapidly but continue using it for at least 7 days ... I'm on day 4 with no improvement, even slightly.
Avatar n tn open heart surgery, rage, and emotional problems in an adolescent son who also has Cerebral Palsy, and marital problems. I also take Premarin, and Clonapin. I have had counseling, am currently in marital counseling with my husband, and are beginning family counseling. I had been taking Celexa for several years, but changed to Effexor XR last summer, and then to Wellbutrin SR in November.
Avatar f tn It doesn't respond to most antibiotics. She gave me a Prescription for some Premarin Cream that I'm supposed to apply topically 2 to 3 times a week and that will help keep UTI infections from happening! Next for me is the BIGGIE on Thursday. The Orthopedic Surgeon. I picked up all of my pictures from my MRI today to take to him. I just hope that he can fix this botched surgery. The scarry thing is that the "Bad" Surgeon may have cut away too much of my Hip Bone.
