Can you buy without a prescription?

All clinically proven medication in the UK requires a valid prescription. This includes Prempak-C, and all other HRT treatments, to confirm the medication is perfectly safe and highly effective for you to use. The prescription process will involve a short consultation – this is the same in person as well as online – and involves medical and personal questions to ensure Prempak-C is compatible with you.

What is Prempak-C?

Prempak-C is a relatively new hormonal replacement therapy that is available in two different concentrations, however, each blister pack is the same and contains two types of pills; one set of pills contains the conjugated oestrogens and the other type contains the progesterone, norgestrel.

What is Prempak-C used for?

Prempak-C is a type of hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) used for the relief of symptoms that occur during menopause. It is also used as a therapy for prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, who are at risk for fractures. These women are unable to take any other prescription medication to prevent bone thinning. It should be understood that the use of Prempak-C to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women is a last option and should be used with caution.

Prempak-C is effective for use in postmenopausal women, who are at a high risk for developing fractures including those who smoke, have recently been on corticosteroid therapy, have a family history of osteoporosis, have a thin body frame, and have had early menopause. Oestrogen supplements have been shown to prevent bone thinning and fractures that often occur in postmenopausal women.

All women who take Prempak-C need to be followed closely by their healthcare provider as there is a small risk of breast cancer; your doctor will perform a thorough breast exam and may even recommend a mammogram. It is also important that you regularly examine your breast at home.

How does Prempak-C work?

During menopause there is a decline in the production of the female sex hormones by the ovaries. The decreasing levels of these sex hormones lead to symptoms like hot flushes, vaginal dryness, mood changes, night sweats or itching. Prempak-C substitutes for the natural oestrogen and progesterone in the body and helps alleviate the symptoms of menopause. These hormones also increase the thickness of the vaginal lining and increase mucus production, thereby providing relief from dryness and painful intercourse.

The benefit of a combination formulation like Prempak-C is because oestrogen alone can lead to cancer of the uterus. The progesterone found in Prempak-C balances out the actions of oestrogen and reduces the risk of uterine cancer.

How to take Prempak-C

HRT like Prempak-C should only be used for a short time. Most doctors prescribe Prempak-C for 6-12 months.

  • Prempak-C pills come in a blister calendar pack.
  • You take the tablets in the order arranged in the pack, starting on day one.
  • You will take the oestrogen pill everyday until day 16.
  • From day 17 onwards, you will take an oestrogen plus a norgestrel tablet till day 28.
  • You then start the next cycle without any break.
  • After 12 months of Prempak-C, all women must be examined by their healthcare provider to review if therapy should be continued.

The tablets can be taken with or without food. Try and take the pills at the same time every day this will make it easy to remember.

At the end of each cycle, you will have some type of withdrawal bleeding- this usually happens within three to six days after you take the norgestrel tablets.

What if I miss a dose?

If you forget to take one pill, you should take it as soon as you can remember. However, if you remember too close to the time of the next pill, then forget the missed dose and only take the pill that is scheduled. Never double up on the dose as this can lead to adverse effects. If you do miss a tablet, the frequency and intensity of the breakthrough bleeding will be more obvious for a few months.

Prempak-C Side Effects

Some women may develop side effects from Prempak-C. These side effects do not occur in all women and are generally seen when you first start Prempak-C. The majority of these side effects subside within a few months. If they do persist, you must tell your doctor.

Side effects include nausea and vomiting, bloating, abdominal cramps or a bloated sensation, menstrual spotting or bleeding, increase in size of fibroids, vaginal thrush, nipple tenderness and breast discomfort, headache, swelling of the feet, weight gain, cramps in the legs, mild increase in blood pressure, dryness of the eyes that makes it difficult to wear contact lenses, irregular skin discoloration of the face (Chloasma) and gallstones.

There is always a potential to develop an allergic reaction to Prempak-C or to one of the ingredients in the formula. If you develop swollen lips, rash, difficulty breathing, dizziness or fainting, you should stop the medication and seek immediate medical attention.
