After rupturing a calf muscle while being treated with Levaquin for a kidney infection, I developed a blood clot in my lower leg. I was told to stop Prempro immediately with no tapering off. I am osteopenic at 55 years old due to taking synthroid for 30 years complicated by a parathyroid adenima that also caused bone loss. Will I be able to resume Prempro when the blood clot issue is resolved since it was injury related?
How are you? Prempro ( combination of conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) is not usually given if there is a history of heart attack, stroke, or blood clot. Since long-term intake of this medicine may also increase your risk of breast cancer, heart attack, stroke, and blood clot - it is important that you discuss with your doctor about your management plan. (ref: http://www.drugs.com/prempro.html) Aside from the clot issue, your medical history and symptoms present are important considerations also. Take care and do keep us posted.
