Premarin Vaginal Cream (Conjugated Estrogens Cream) - Product Information
Premarin Vaginal Cream (Conjugated Estrogens Cream) contains a mixture of Estrogen hormones. Premarin Vaginal cream is used to treat the vaginal symptoms of menopause such as dryness, burning, irritation, and painful sexual intercourse.
These symptoms are caused by the body making less Estrogen (Estrogen is a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries) and Premarin Vaginal Cream can relieve the sysmptoms by replacing the Estrogen that the body no longer produces.
Premarin Vaginal cream must not be used to prevent heart disease or dementia, because this medicine may actually increase your risk of developing these conditions.
We also have in stock Estriol Tablets (Evalon Pills) which are prescribed as Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for several menopausal symptoms such as Atrophy of the lower urogenital tract, management of micturition complaints, hot flushes and night sweating.

Uses of Premarin Vaginal Cream (Conjugated Estrogens Cream)
Premarin Vaginal Cream (Conjugated Estrogens) is a vaginal cream which is used for treatment of vaginal dryness, burning and painful sexual intercourse.
Estrogen is one of the main hormones responsible for helping to keep many of the tissues in a woman's body healthy, such as the tissues of the urinary system and the lining of the vagina. During the menopause, the level of the estrogen in a woman's body will decrease.
By replacing the estrogen that a woman's body no longer makes, Premarin Vaginal Cream can relieve some of the symptoms that a woman may experience at the time of menopause, such as vaginal itching and dryness.
How Does Premarin Vaginal Cream Work?
Conjugated Estrogens like those present in Premarin Vaginal Cream are water-soluble and are well-absorbed through the skin, mucous membranes, and the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Exogenous Estrogens are metabolized in the same process as endogenous estrogens. Circulating estrogens exist in a dynamic equilibrium of metabolic interconversions. These transformations take place mostly in the liver. Estradiol is converted reversibly to estrone, and both can be converted to Estriol, which is a major urinary metabolite.
In postmenopausal women, a significant portion of the circulating estrogens exists as sulfate conjugates, specially Estrone Sulfate, which serves as a circulating reservoir for the formation of more active Estrogens.

Interactions of Premarin Vaginal Cream with Other Drugs
Studies have shown that Estrogens are metabolized partially by cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4). Therefore, inducers or inhibitors of CYP3A4 can affect estrogen drug metabolism. Inducers of CYP3A4, such as St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum) preparations, Phenobarbital, Carbamazepine, And Rifampin, could reduce plasma concentrations of estrogens, possibly resulting in a decrease in therapeutic effects and/or changes in the uterine bleeding profile. Inhibitors of CYP3A4, such as Erythromycin, Clarithromycin, Ketoconazole, Itraconazole, Ritonavir and grapefruit juice, may increase plasma concentrations of estrogens and can result in side effects.
