I have used regular Prempro (pink) for many years. My doctor and I decided I should begin to reduce the dosage, so she switched me to the low-dose Prempro (yellow) last month. I am now realizing that my skin is peeling on my arms, legs and shoulders--probably because of this medication switch. Will there be anything else I can use... or am I going to be forced back onto the higher-dose (pink) pills to escape this filler teaction?

That may not be a reaction to the fillers, or the dosage change, there is a risk that it could be a much more serious reaction, according to FDA warnings. Such reactions are sometimes fatal.

Has there been any change? Is this the only medication you are taking? Has there been any change in your symptoms?

it was a photo-toxic reaction to Naprosyn, which I had used as needed for years. Even though I stayed out of the sun, my recent visit to Hawaii caused "ambient" light to trigger the meds inside the individual skin cells to "explode" and the peeling was unreal. So now I am back in the relative darkness and have stopped the peeling. Thanks for the opportunity to think this whole thing through and "cure" myself!
