Premarin Cream contains conjugated estrogens, a mix of estrogen hormones. It is predominantly used in menopausal women who are experiencing vaginal symptoms of menopause---such as dryness or irritation---when other menopausal symptoms are not present, or not severe enough to warrant treatment.
Note that Premarin Cream does not contain a progestin; it is an estrogen-only medication. Women taking estrogen therapy who have an intact uterus, regardless of menopause, are nearly always advised to also take a progestin to mitigate risk of uterine cancer. Women who have had their uterus removed do not need to worry about progestins.
Progestins and estrogens are often combined into a single treatment, though this is uncommon with vaginal creams. Women utilizing creams may need to buy progestin-only medications, which can be browsed here. Dosage should be determined by a doctor, as it will depend on a number of personal variables.

While it may alleviate other symptoms of menopause---hot flashes, night sweats, and so forth---to some small degree, it will not be nearly as effective as tablets.
Premarin Cream comes with an applicator to make intravaginal administration easy. The applicator contains dosing measurements. Detailed instructions for use come with each package.
Dosing usually starts low, gradually increased if needed. There are two standard treatment methods:
Which method is used is best determined by a doctor; it will depend on what exactly is being treated and its severity.
Duration of treatment will likewise vary; hormone replacement therapy is not meant to be indefinite. Most women, given time, will adjust to menopause and no longer experience symptoms even without estrogen therapy. Vaginal symptoms, however, tend to be the most persistant. The need for continued estrogen therapy should be reevaluated every 3 to 6 months, simply by stopping use of Premarin Cream and seeing if symptoms return.
Certain patients are poor candidates for Premarin Cream and shouldn't use this product, namely those who:
Doctors and dentists should be informed prior to surgery that the medication is being taken.
Though rare, Premarin Cream can cause potentially serious side effects. Seek medical attention if experiencing:
Other medications are fairly unlikely to interfere with Premarin Cream, but it can happen. To be on the safe side, always double-check with a doctor or pharmacist before mixing treatments, especially other vaginally-administered medications.
