PREMARIN VAGINAL CREAM should not be used in women with any of the following conditions: undiagnosed abnormal genital bleeding; known, suspected, or a history of breast cancer; known or suspected estrogen-dependent neoplasia; active deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or a history of these conditions; active arterial thromboembolic disease (eg, stroke, myocardial infarction), or a history of these conditions; anaphylactic reaction or angioedema to Premarin Vaginal Cream; liver dysfunction or disease; thrombophilic disorders; pregnancy.
It makes no sense to me that you would be given Premarin vaginal cream to use in place of Premarin pills. I do understand it being prescribed in addition to the Premarin. As (((Linda))) said, one does not substitute for the other. The two do not equate in the amounts of estrogen.

I am on CLimara patch 0.06 and my dr also gave me Premarin Cream for dryness. Although my pharmacist said it takes care of all of the same symptoms and serves the same purpose of the patch. I dont know. All I know is I dont have hot flashes!!
