What happens if I miss a dose of Premarin?

If you miss a dose of Premarin, take it as soon as you remember it. If it is very close to the time are supposed to take the next one, skip it and continue taking the rest normally. Don't take two pills at once or double the application of the cream.

You are less likely to miss a dose of Premarin if you take it at the same time everyday. If you do miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, wait and take the next regular dose. Don’t make up for a missed dose by taking an extra dose. You should not take any extra medication.
