Following a recent $4 million dollar verdict, the Bisnar Chase Prempro lawyers in Orange County have noted an increase in inquiries related to Prempro and its side effects. Although Prempro has been linked to life-threatening side effects, and a wide variety of mild ones, the attorneys at B | C believe that there are still a significant number of Prempro victims who are unaware that their conditions are a result of using Prempro. As studies continue to link serious medical conditions to Prempro use, and victims continue to come forward in alarming numbers, pharmaceutical manufacturers may begin to spend more time worrying about the safety of their products instead of their profit margins.
New York Victims Want Answers
Introduced by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals in 1996, Prempro was designed as a hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Specifically designed to assist women struggling with hot flashes and other menopause symptoms, hormone replacement therapies boasted 15 million female users during peak years. Unfortunately, it was not until years after its initial release that concerns regarding the medication’s safety began to gain traction.
In 2002, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted a major hormone replacement therapy study and found that Prempro, as well as other similar drugs, significantly increased ones risk of blood clots, heart attacks, stroke, and breast cancer. Once the drug was exposed as having the potential to seriously inflict harm amongst those utilizing it, the NIH cancelled the study to help ensure the safety of those participating.
The dangers that have been linked to using Prempro have left many outraged; although studies show that Prempro may be extremely dangerous, there have not been any noticeable efforts to prevent the drug from reaching patients. It has yet to be recalled and it does not look as though it will be recalled any time soon.
