What is Premique?
Premique is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), used to treat women who have started to show signs of the menopause.
How does Premique work?
During a woman’s menopause, natural levels of oestrogen production begin to drop. Premique contains two female hormones; an oestrogen and a progestogen (medroxyprogesterone acetate); which work to replenish a woman’s natural levels and offset the effects of menopause.
What are the benefits of taking Premique?
Symptoms of menopause include hot flashes (of the face, neck and chest), irregular menstrual cycle, night sweats, weight gain, thinning of hair and mood changes.
These symptoms can often disrupt daily life so using HRT medication, such as Premique, can restore the natural hormone balance.
Premique should be taken at a similar time each day, according to the directions on the pack. Swallow the tablet whole with a sip of water. This can be done with or without food. Once you finish a pack (28 days), start a new pack the following day without an interval. You should review your HRT with your GP at least once each year.
If, for any reason, you forget to take a tablet, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the dose that you missed. Never double your dose to compensate for a dose that you have missed.
Not everyone will experience side effects when they take Premique, however if you do they may include:
Breakthrough bleeding, breast pain or tenderness, mood swings, aching muscles or joints, weight change, leg cramps, vaginal inflammation, change in fat levels in the blood.
If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
