Prempro Side Effects and Health Complications

Less than a decade ago, reports of a Prempro pharmaceutical defects were met with understandable opposition. What had been designed to provide relief from symptoms such as hot flashes, irregular menstruation and weight gain was reexamined and found to actually substantially increase one's chances of being diagnosed with life-threatening health complications. Countless patients were converted into victims, and those deemed healthy live in fear knowing that they have a much higher risk of developing heart disease, breast cancer, strokes, and blood clots in the not-so-distant future.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Goes From Bad to Worse

Prempro wasn't always a poster child for products liability cases. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was the use of progestins and hormones to increase hormone levels in women during menopause. It was designed to provide relief from symptoms associated with menopause to hopefully make a woman's transition more bearable. Although it was successful for many patients, far too many developed conditions that were later found to be associated with their participation in HRT.

It did not take long for the public to except and move forward with the fact that Prempro, and similar drugs, were causing negative reactions in patients, but that was before the extent of the damage inflicted on its patients was fully realized. After years of studies and lab work, the findings associated with this defective product were simply outrageous. A federal study found that hormone replacement therapy utilizing Prempro increases your chances of being inflicted with the following:

  1. Twenty six percent more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer
  2. Twenty nine percent more likely to suffer a heart attack.
  3. Forty one percent more likely to suffer a stroke
  4. and double the amount of blood clots in the legs and veins

Prempro Victims Receive Compensation

Since the Prempro side effects have been made clear, many victims have come forward to attain compensation for their injuries and their pain and suffering. Some have succeeded in obtaining a fair level of compensation, while others have fallen short. If you feel that you may be experiencing symptoms associated with Prempro make sure to contact your primary care physician as soon as possible. If you would like to pursue a product liability case, contact an experienced attorney who you feel you can trust.
