Alternatives to Prempro

Prempro is not the only available method of relieving menopausal symptoms. Other options include:
 
  • Coping strategies (such as wearing lighter clothes for hot flashes or using a vaginal lubricant for dryness)
  • Other medications
  • Natural remedies, including herbal supplements and "bioidentical" hormone replacement.
     
(Click Prempro Alternatives for more information about other menopause treatment options.)
 

What If I Take an Overdose?

Women who take too much Prempro may experience the following symptoms:
 
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Vaginal bleeding.
     
(Click Prempro Overdose for more information.)
 

How Should It Be Stored?

Prempro tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in their original dispenser packaging. Keep Prempro and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What If I Miss a Dose of Prempro?

If you do not take your Prempro as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 

Strengths of Prempro

Prempro tablets come in the following strengths:
 
  • Prempro 0.3 mg/1.5 mg -- 0.3 mg of conjugated estrogens and 1.5 mg of medroxyprogesterone acetate
  • Prempro 0.45 mg/1.5 mg -- 0.45 mg of conjugated estrogens and 1.5 mg of medroxyprogesterone acetate
  • Prempro 0.625 mg/2.5 mg -- 0.625 mg of conjugated estrogens and 2.5 mg of medroxyprogesterone acetate
