It is normal for women to experience a decline in hormones with aging; Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is used in an attempt to get these hormone levels back to a normal level. HRT cream is a dosage form that includes hormones, typically progesterone and estrogen, in a cream formulation for absorption through the skin.
Step 1: Wash hands with soap and water.
Step 2: Measure the prescribed amount of cream from the syringe and rub completely into clean, dry, skin on the inside of the wrist, inside the upper arm, the inner thigh, or lower abdominal area.
**Unless otherwise instructed by your physician or pharmacist
Step 3: Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water immediately after applying.
Using HRT should be painless and easy. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or are having trouble using the cream properly. Discontinue use and check with your doctor or pharmacist if you notice any redness, itching, swelling, or other side effects not present before you started using this medicine.
Question: What should I do if I miss a dose?
Answer: If you miss a dose of your HRT cream applies the missed dose as soon as possible. If your next dose is less than 4 hours away, then skip the missed dose and simply apply the next dose at the time that corresponds to the dosing regimen on your prescription label.
Question: What if my child or pet is exposed to my HRT cream?
Answer: If a child comes into direct contact with the areas where the HRT cream was applied, wash the child’s skin with soap and water as soon as possible. Contact the child’s healthcare professional if you notice any nipple swelling or breast development in girls or breast enlargement in boys and that the child may have been exposed to an HRT topical cream.
Question: What if my pet is exposed to my HRT cream?
Answer: Do not allow pets to lick or touch the arm where the HRT cream was applied. Contact your veterinarian if your pet shows signs of the nipple or vulvar enlargement and let them know that your pet may have been exposed to an HRT topical product.
