Premerin

I am wondering if anyone here is on Premerin for hormone replacement?

I have never taken Premarin before. Is this what your Dr has recommended for you? I can only give you my opinion, and I'm not a Dr, but I would not take it. That's me though.
You might want to ask Cherie, our CL here to ask what she thinks. Take care. Remar

Remar,

I was on Premerin for 21 years and I recently switched to a patch.  I had no idea back when I was 26 how horrible this medication is.  I just followed my doctors prescription and took it.  A few years ago I lowered the dose quite a bit and had some problems so I was very afraid to get off of it but I am now.  I am making this post to warn people to please not take it.  Thank you for your advice, I appreciate it greatly and agree with you wholeheartedly.  Please continue to tell everyone NOT to take it.

Thanks...

I DONT LIKE PREMARINE..its made from horses urine.Yuck !!!!

I used estrogen patch and was very happy with it and found it very easy to use this is bio identical means made as close as poddible to the hormones you should be producing.

NO IT'S MADE FROM PREGNANT HORSES PEE AND I WON'T GO INTO WHAT THEY DO TO THE BABIES WHEN THEY ARE BORN.  I HATE THE CRAP AND AM PISSED I WAS EVER PUT ON IT !

Thank you Cherie. I was'nt sure if I could say what it's made of.
Joni, I'm so glad you quit taking it. I could tell you stories of a few women that are, or were very close to me and their experience with this med.
Are you using the same patch Cherie did?
No, most Drs will not tell you what's it made of or how it's made. Take care. Remar
