Jacksonville Provera® Injury Lawyer

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) using drugs such as Provera has been around since the 1920s, but it only took off in the 1960s. These days, using hormones to treat the symptoms of menopause is par for the course. Unfortunately, it can also prove extremely dangerous for women, who can be fatally injured by Provera and similar pharmaceuticals in their quest to relieve the symptoms of menopause.

Why is Provera so dangerous? It combines the hormone estrogen with progestin, a combination that has been linked with syndromes as varied as breast cancer, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, emboli, and other risky conditions. Clinical studies of this and other popular hormone replacement therapies have revealed a troubling connection to cancers of all kinds, and a recent study of the effects of HRT on dementia have linked Provera and similar drugs to an increased risk of developing dementia after four years or more of treatment for women over 65 years of age.

Though the FDA has committed to several long-term studies of Provera and similar long-term hormonal replacement therapies and continues to monitor the safety of these drugs, it has not done enough to control the drug’s negative side effects or rein in Pfizer, the drug’s manufacturer. Women have to rely on their own resources and the civil courts to send a message that their Provera side effects are simply unacceptable.

Filing a Florida Provera lawsuit is the first step for a woman who seeks financial compensation for side effects of this drug. Though a verdict or settlement cannot give anyone back the years of their life they spend on an expensive, exhausting, and sometimes fatal health struggle, it can help compensate a woman for the financial costs associated with the side effects, provide for future medical care, and/or compensate her family for her death.
