Premarin (Conjugated Estrogens) belong to the class of medications known as estrogen replacement therapy. Estrogen is a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries. Once a woman reaches menopause, the ovaries produce less estrogen and symptoms of menopause can occur. Conjugated estrogen is an estrogen replacement hormone used to manage menopausal symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding (spotting), hot flashes, sweating, and chills. This medication may also help in the treatment and preventions of osteoporosis caused by estrogen deficiency when combined with diet, calcium and exercise. It is sometimes used as part of cancer treatment in women and men. The recommended dose of this medication ranges from 0.3mg to 1.25mg daily, depending on the condition being treated.
