    Premarin and PMU Information

    Premarine stands for Pregnant Mares' Urine (PREgnant MARes' urINE); PMU for short (we spell it both ways, with an 'e' which is the older, original name used in Canada, and without -- which is the more popular recent spelling, and the one that is trademarked). Premarin™ (including Prempro, Premphase, and Prempac) is a drug made up of conjugated estrogens obtained from the urine of pregnant mares -- put out in many forms (pills, creams, injections, patches) and is used to reduce the symptoms of menopause in women or women who have had a hysterectomy. It is also prescribed to nearly eliminate the risk of osteoporosis (the brittling of bones) and reduce the chance of heart disease in women over 50.
