It has been one of the most popular hormone replacement therapy drugs since its FDA approval in 1995. But Prempro isn’t just a cure for menopausal symptoms – it’s a potentially dangerous drug that has been linked to cancer and other significant medical problems. Read on for more information on Prempro safety and your legal rights.
While Prempro, which is produced by Wyeth, is touted as effective for the treatment of menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and also for its anti-osteoporosis and anti-heart disease applications, it can cause other serious health problems like breast cancer, endometrial and ovarian cancers, and even non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Prempro has also been linked to premature dementia, blood clots, and stroke. A 15-year study comparing Prempro and other progestin-only hormone replacement therapies to alternatives produced extremely troubling results. Unfortunately, the drug remains extremely popular and though the FDA has warned patients on its dangers, it is still very widely in use.
What kinds of options do women who have been injured by Prempro have? The FDA seems unwilling to take down pharmaceutical giant Wyeth in favor of women’s health, but women can take matters into their own hands by filing lawsuits against Wyeth in civil court and seeking financial compensation for the injuries and illnesses they suffered due to their Prempro use. Though a Prempro lawsuit can seem daunting and requires a great deal of evidence, investigation, and persistence, it can pay off for patients, who can see compensation for the costs associated with treating Prempro-related medical conditions, providing for future medical care, and even making up for lost wages, necessary rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.
