Hi All
Just came across your site by luck really and have been reading some of your blogs. You are all very helpful to each other so thought I would post myself and see if I could get some feed back myself.

I have just been prescribed Premique Low Dose and was wondering if anyone else is taking this medication ? And how you are fiinding it and if you have got any side effects and how soon it took to start working ?
Many Thanks and looking forward to any replies smile. x

I have been prescribed Premique Low Dose from Monday 27th October. It's only been 10 days but I feel worse than ever. The lack of sleep, sweats, hot hot flushes, I don't know how much I can take. How long before it actually works? I was on Kliofem for 3 months but then had a massive bleed and came off it.

Any advice?

Premique is one of the old fashioned HRTs made from horses' (CEE) urine. You would b better off taking one of the newer kind where they oestrogen is identical to our own.

Are you peri or post meno?

It's possible that the dose if low is too low- you might need more oestrogen.
Also- they do say allow 3 months for any HRT to work.

Have a look at the menopause Matters website www.menopausematters.co.uk under HRT and you will see all the different preparations.

Go back to the dr and ask for something else?

The HRT you are taking is a very low dose oestrogen 0.3 mgs a day.
Many women take 1, 1.5 or 2 mgs daily.

You are also taking a combined HRT with a synthetic progestin- MPA- which can cause all kinds of side effects.

It sounds as if you need more oestrogen and less progestogen. You can still have a cycle even post meno when you would need to take progestin every month for 10 days- but not every day. Some women use a bio identical oestrogen and then add in a bio identical progesterone each month .
