Product Information

Prometrium is a female hormone used to protect the lining of the uterus in women on estrogen replacement therapy. Progesterone may lower the risk of estrogen-related cancer of the uterus. This medicine is also used to treat women who have had menstrual periods in the past but have stopped having them because of a lack of progesterone hormone. This medicine may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. This medicine used in combination with estrogen (hormone replacement therapy - HRT) should not be used to prevent heart disease. This medicine may increase your risk of developing blood clots. If you will be having surgery, or be confined to a bed or chair for a long period of time (such as a long plane flight), notify your doctor beforehand. Special precautions may be needed in these circumstances while you are taking this medicine. Combination hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can infrequently cause breast cancer, heart problems such as heart attack, stroke, dementia, or blood clots in the lung or leg. Estrogens may also increase the risk of cancer of the ovary. These risks appear to depend on the length of time the combination is used and the amount of estrogen per dose. Therefore, HRT should be used for the shortest possible length of time at the lowest effective dose, so you obtain the benefits and minimize the chance for serious side effects from long-term treatment. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
