Premphase is a prescription drug that is a blend of two feminine hormones which are estrogen and progestin hormones. It is used to treat symptoms and conditions that may arise due to menopause that may range from vaginal dryness, osteoporosis and or hot flashes. The active components within Premphase are conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone acetate which is a derivative of the progestin hormone. Both groups of hormones play vital roles within the female reproductive system. During menopause there is a steady decline in the production of both hormones resulting in menopausal symptoms such as the hot flashes. Premphase functions and eradicates these symptoms by boosting the production of these hormones when the body fails to produce them.
Premphase is a medicine used in the treatment of menopausal symptoms. Among these symptoms include vaginal dryness, hot flashes, burning, irritation, and an increased propensity to develop osteoporosis. Premphase may also be used for other purposes as determined by the prescriber.
Premphase is composed of two drugs, conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone - each of which acts in different, yet complementary ways. Conjugated estrogens are a version of natural estrogens, an essential female sex hormone. Medroxyprogesterone, more commonly known as progesterone, regulates the process of menstruation.
Common side effects associated with Premphase include breast pain or swelling, headache, vaginal itch, mild vaginal bleeding, nausea, acne, and weight changes.
