Prempro is a prescription hormone replacement drug that is used to treat symptoms
of menopause. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a general term used to describe
an attempt to substitute synthetic estrogen and progesterone (called progestin) for
the hormones lost naturally during a woman's life cycle leading up to and following
menopause. Decreased levels of estrogen may cause hot flashes, vaginal dryness,
sleep disturbances, or other bothersome side effects.
In the 1970s, the nation’s leading menopausal drug was Premarin. Made by Wyeth
Laboratories, sales of Premarin fell after it was discovered that Premarin caused
endometrial cancer. Wyeth then determined that combining estrogen with progestin
eliminated the side effect of endometrial cancer. Wyeth combined Premarin and progestin
into a single pill called Prempro, saying that it would also provide added protection
to women’s hearts and bones, would help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and depression,
and would increase women’s sexual vitality.
In 2002, a federal study known as the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) revealed that
Prempro led to an increased risk of stroke, breast cancer, heart attacks, and circulatory
diseases. Scheduled to end in 2005, the study was immediately stopped because researchers
felt that the elevated risk of breast cancer as well as higher than normal rates of heart
attack, stroke, and blood clots outweighed the benefits that HRT may have provided against
hip fractures and colon cancer. In 2003, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered
Premarin and Prempro to carry a warning listing the risks for heart disease, stroke,
breast cancer, pulmonary embolisms, and blood clots. These potential dangers have opened
Wyeth up to countless HRT lawsuits.
If you or a loved one took Prempro, Premarin or another HRT and
have breast cancer, blood clots, stroke, heart disease or other complications, you have
important legal rights it may be wise to hire a local class action law firm to look into your case. By hiring an experienced
