My friend of 30 age n doctor give her premarin 0.625.

premarin is pure estrogen and it may reduce facial hair (not sure!) - not sure about breasts - you can discover more info below in sections DYSFUNCTIONS ("Hirsutism") and in section BREASTS
Can anyone tell me about the female hormone premarin?
i am a male to female transgender. i just started taking premarin 0.625. i was wondering does anyone know what the affects on my body and mind would be in stages and long does it take to start showing these affects?
Don't expect miracles; unless you're a young teenager, the effects of oestrogen therapy will be neither spectacular nor fast.
There's a very good information page about hormones, their effects and dosages here;
I would say, though, that many transsexual women (and other women too) prefer not to use Premarin; not only because of it's side effects, but because they find the method of production distasteful. There are better alternatives.
Why do i have so much mucus discharge from my rectum?
i am 37yrs old, female, smoker, had a hysterectomy and am taking premarin 0.625 hormone replacement therapy. colonoscopy shows nothing abnormal. mucus is thick and clumping and i have extreme pain in chest and back. family doctor says "if we don't find it now, we'll find it at autopsy". pain is dibilitating, can anyone help
I can't help you with an answer but if my doctor said that to me I would lose him/her. That was a ridiculous response.

You could have a hidden infection. This doctor had a radio show for 25 years and I uploaded a 5 minute segment that includes infertility, miscarriages and PCOS for a woman caller who had 4 miscarriages:
Infertility summary: http://www.drmirkin.com/women/W128.htm
PCOS summary: http://www.drmirkin.com/women/8124.htm
His summaries are easy to understand and include many references to medical studies if you want to print them for your doctor.
How to calculate drug dosages?
Its been a while since i had this type of math i can remember some of it though but im getting hung up on the formula....example:
Available strenght = available amount
Ordered strenght = amount to give
order = Premarin 1.25mg pd qd
supply = Premarin 0.625mg caplets
0.625 = 0.625
1.25 = x
0.625x = 0.78125
but my question do you divide the 0.625x by 0.78125 which is x=0.8
0.78125 by 0.625x which is x=1.25
which one is correct ????
Neither is correct.
(0.625mg / 1 cap) = (1.25mg / x cap)
0.625mg * x cap = 1 cap * 1.25mg
Solve for x
x cap = (1 cap * 1.25mg) / 0.625mg
x = 2 caps
Your setup should have been:
0.625mg = 1 cap
1.25mg = x cap
When doing calculations, ALWAYS include the units. After canceling where appropriate, if the units left over are what's required in your answer, then your setup is probably correct.
BIG PROBLEM, need major help?
let me exsplain whats going on, my doctor gave me a medicine to try called premarin 0.625, its a menapause pill to help with hot flashes, i took one like my doctor told me to (one at night) when i woke up this morning it felt like i had od, i ran into the wall couldnt balance, and have a mojor migraine on the left side of my head. i called the pharmacy to see if this medication had side affcets like that, the pharmacists told me there were no major side affects to this pill, when i looked the pill up it has alot of serious side affects, anyways he and my doctor told me to keep taken the pill, even thou im having problems with balance i cant quit shaken now, and my head hurts really bad and i cant focus. What do i do to make all this stop? i only took one pill. and has anyone else gone threw this? do i need to go to the hospital?
I would stop taking the pills. Wait a day (if you can) and see how you fell then. This would determine if its the pill that made you feel that way, or if its something else. If its the pill, then I would tell your Dr. that you don't want to take those and see if they can prescribe you something else.
If you have medication knowledge, please advise if I can stop taking some of these supplements?
I take the following prescribed medications for cardiomyopathy which when diagnosed I had a 20% injection fraction and confestive heart failure. Now my heart has an injection fraction of between 40-45% injection fraction which is a remarkable return.
Memtroprolol 100 mg bid
Ramipril 10 mg bid
Aspirin 81 mg daily
Furosemide 20 mg daily
Potassium Chloride 20 meq daily
Synthroid 200 micrograms daily (status post thryoidectomy for CA)
Premarin 0.625 mg daily (status post hysterectomy for fribroids)
Co-enzyme Q10 100 mg daily
In addition I take the following supplements and these are what my question is about.....
Vitamin E 1000 units daily
Omega 3 Fish Oil 1000 mg daily
Calcium (1000 mg) Magnesium (400 mg) and Zinc (15 mg) daily
Super B Complex Vitamin C (150 mg), B-1 (100 Mg), B-2 (20 mg), B-3 (25 mg), B-6 (2 mg), Folic Acid 400 mcg, B-12 15 mcg, Biotin3.8 mcg, pantothenic Acid 5 mg, Liver Powder 100 mg, Brewer's yeast 100 mg daily
Doctor's will always say that supplements have no known benefit because the FDA has not approved them as a medication. However, it is known traditionally that many people have used plants/herbs and other natural compounds to help with diseases. Also, currently there is a lot of research that suggests that some supplements really do help. Why do you want to stop taking your supplements? If it is too expensive that is one thing, but if it is to stop because you feel as though you are taking too many pills that is another. I have done research on some supplements and likewise I would say that stopping them there is no known risk. However, you might want to read the labels of the supplements that you are taking and if they suggest that by taking them you should feel more loose or alert ect., you would expect a decrease in those claims if you stopped. I would suggest though that you continue to take your Fish Oil unless you eat fish in your diet. The Omega 3's really are beneficial especially for those who have some risks with heart trouble. Anyway, with all of that said use your discretion but I think that you would be fine if you wanted to limit your intake of supplements but I don't know much I am only an aspiring graduate student. :)
Im on SIX different medications and i think im addicted to some... HELP!?
okay first off this is my mother in law asking... here she goes....
I am on 0.5 mg of Xanax twice daily, 4 mg of Risperdal once a day, 150 mg of Zoloft once a day, 0.625 mg of premarin a day, and then i also take 40 mg of lisinapril once a day, and a water pill to go on top of it... I really would like to get off of my medication, and when i talk to my doctor, he tells me that he can no longer help me... and i cannot afford to go to the mental health clinic... but i do need to get off of these pills.... i have been on them since i was 21 and im 51 now... they have completely taken over my life, i am a nervous wreck and the pills no longer help me.... i just want to live a normal life... can i just stop them cold turkey? or how would you suggest stopping? thanks for any advice!
NO please don't stop cold turkey. I've done this with some ssris and wanted to kill myself. It will take you out of reality, and it was only after a few months. Tell your doctor you don't want to take them, but you have to do it Very gradually to get off so withdrawl and all dosent set in. Good luck, but talk to a professional about it. They really screwed you by putting you on so much medecines, that **** sucks. They just try to pedal out drugs to make the money. Natural **** can do it just as well but it wouldnt make them money. It's a F'ed up business and sorry for all they have put you through. Talk to the doctor, and see what they say. Good luck again.
HRT and Estratest <<< Any experience with this??? I need HELP!!?
Had total hyst on 05-23-07 and have been on Estratest. Am emotionally "out of whack!!!"
In Sept switched from Estratest to Premarin for one week. Thought I was going to kill myself, or someone else!! It made me extremely depressed, psychotic and an insomniac. So went back on Estratest. (Estratest H.S. tablet 0.625 mg).
Have spoken to my gynecologist and she just grins and tells me to hang in there. GROAN!
Sometimes I'm really dizzy. Doesn't last long, but definitely dizzy and bouts of feeling very SAD.
Here's my question......... do you think I need to INCREASE the estrogen medication or DECREASE it ??
I think my gynecologist will "up" the dose, but don't know if I should! Freaks me out totally.
What side effects may occur?
Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, tell your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe to continue using Estratest.
More common side effects may include:
Abdominal cramps, acne, allergic reactions, anxiety, bladder problems, bloating, breast discharge, breast swelling and tenderness, brown patches on the face, cervical changes, clotting disorders, deepening of the voice, depression, dizziness, enlarged clitoris, enlarged fibroids, gallbladder disease, hair loss on scalp, hair growth on face, headache, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, intolerance to contact lenses, liver disorders, menstrual problems, migraine, nausea, sex drive changes, skin eruptions, swelling, tingling, twitching, vaginal yeast infection, vision changes, vomiting, weight changes, yellowing of skin and eyes .....
Page: 1 | 2 | 3 .....
So, my answer is, NO do nor increase it, its too dangerous. You might ask your doctor to switch to another HRT pill, I use patches just estrogen patches. They have a very low dose of estrogen. But maybe you are a much yougner woman therefore your gynecologist did give you this one which says:
Estratest tablets quell the flushing, sweating, "hot flashes," and vaginal irritation that trouble three-quarters of all women when they reach menopause. Estratest works by replacing some of the estrogen that is lost when the reproductive system shuts down. Although it relieves the physical symptoms of menopause, it won't help emotional symptoms such as depression if the physical symptoms are absent. It combines supplemental estrogen with a synthetic form of the male hormone testosterone, and is prescribed when estrogen alone fails to relieve menopausal symptoms.
So the depressions have nothing to do with the hormones, maybe your gynecologist or your GP should give you some mild (herbal?) anti-depressant, that is something I would consider if I felt like you do. Hang in there is right, but you do need help for these depressions and insommia.
Pharmacists----is estradiol prescription only inthe US?
because I keep seeing it for sale in pumps and such--how are they doing this, like take this Estrogel, it.s 0.6% which means .6g/100ml which = 6mg/ml
Premarin was .625mg of estrogens, so in 1/10th of a ml (a few drops) you'd get the same dose, and that dose of .625 was considered DANGEROUS in the Women's Health Initiative, and most sprayers are going to overdose that amount, and they're not quantitative.
Sorry but I'm very confused how these bioidentical hormones which are identical to premarin, can be sold in pumps, they're absorbed through the skin, so they're still dosed.
Can someone in the know explain this? Thanks
Estrogen is used to treat hot flushes ('hot flashes'; sudden strong feelings of heat and sweating) in women who are experiencing menopause ('change of life', the end of monthly menstrual periods). Some brands of estrogen are also used to treat vaginal dryness, itching, or burning, or to prevent osteoporosis (a condition in which the bones become thin and weak and break easily) in women who are experiencing or have experienced menopause. However, women who need a medication only to treat vaginal dryness or only to prevent osteoporosis should consider a different treatment. Some brands of estrogen are also to relieve symptoms of low estrogen in young women who do not produce enough estrogen naturally. Some brands of estrogen are also used to relieve the symptoms of certain types of breast and prostate (a male reproductive gland) cancer. Estrogen is in a class of medications called hormones. It works by replacing estrogen that is normally produced by the body.
Estradiol topical gel and emulsion (lotion type mixture) are used to treat and prevent hot flushes (hot flashes; sudden strong feelings of heat and sweating) in women who are experiencing menopause (change of life; the end of monthly menstrual periods). Estradiol topical gel is also used to treat vaginal dryness, itching, and burning in women who are experiencing menopause. However, women whose only bothersome symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, and dryness may benefit more from a medication that is applied topically to the vagina. Estradiol is in a class of medications called estrogen hormones. It works by replacing estrogen that is normally produced by the body.
Please see the web pages for more details on Estrogen (generic name) Premarin (brand name) and Estradiol.
