What are the side effects after you quit taking premarin?

Posted by nopremarinforme

I had a complete hysterectomy and took premarin for 3 & 1/2 years.  I have been off of premarin for 2 weeks.  I've had a few small hot flashes.  Can this effect your memory?

Dear nopremarinforme,

Many women have noted memory and concentration problems during Menopause, which can be somewhat better when on hormone therapy. While disconcerting, it usually is temporary (although we don't seem to get back to the sharpness we had in our thirties.) Ginkgo biloba or acetyl l carnitine supplements have been helpful to many women.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Yeah,  menopausal symptoms can include memory problems.  Try an OTC natural progesterone for the symptoms.  I'm on Progessence Plus Serum and I can a women's herbal supplement.
