This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

What Premia Continuous is used for
Premia Continuous tablets are for the relief of menopausal symptoms caused by a lack of the female hormone oestrogen.
Treatment is usually long-term and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. It may also reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

Premia Continuous contains a mixture of natural female hormones called oestrogens (conjugated oestrogens) and
medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). Oestrogens are produced by the ovaries in menstruating women. MPA is similar to a natural
hormone, progesterone, which is produced by the ovaries during the second half of the menstrual cycle.

Premia Continuous is available in tablets containing two different strengths of MPA: Premia 2.5 Continuous tablets, which contains
2.5 mg of MPA and Premia 5 Continuous which contains 5 mg of MPA.

They are used for the relief of menopausal symptoms, such as hot flushes and sweating, by replacing the natural oestrogen your
body has stopped making. The reduction in the body's oestrogen level may also lead to a thinning of your bones (osteoporosis)
and Premia Continuous can prevent or treat this condition. Premia Continuous has also been shown to improve the blood levels of
various fats and cholesterol when given to women who have passed the menopause. This improvement in the blood fat and
cholesterol levels may benefit you by reducing the risk of heart disease.

Premia Continuous contains medroxyprogesterone acetate to protect the womb while you are taking oestrogen therapy.

Premia Continuous may also help you regulate your menstrual cycle at this time of your life.

Your doctor may have prescribed Premia Continuous for another purpose. Ask your doctor if you have any questions why Premia
Continuous has been prescribed for you.

There is no evidence that Premia Continuous is addictive.
