Premarin is a medicine containing a mixture of estrogen hormones. Premarin is the brand name of that medicine and belongs to a group of drugs known as hormone replacement therapy, or HRT.
It is used to treat moderate to severe hot flashes, changes in and around the vagina, and other symptoms of menopause or low amounts of estrogen (hypoestrogenism). This medicine is also used to prevent osteoporosis (thinning of the bones) after menopause.
During menopause, your body produces less estrogen. This can cause symptoms such as "hot flashes" or dryness of the vagina. Premarin works like the hormones produced by the ovaries before menopause. When given during or after menopause, it can help control the symptoms.
Premarin can also be used to treat women before menopause if their ovaries do not make enough estrogen naturally.
