Prometrium, the first commercially available form of ORAL micronized progesterone
Solvay is now marketing Prometrium, the first commerciallyavailable form of ORAL micronized progesterone. Until now, thishad to be compounded by a pharmacist.
For years, women have been taking synthetic progestins such asProvera (medroxyprogesterone) instead of progesterone. Naturalprogesterone is not well absorbed. Synthetic progestins weredesigned for better absorption.
Prometrium is identical to NATURAL progesterone...but theparticles are micronized to improve absorption.
