Prempro Side Effects


Prempro Breast Cancer & Ovarian Cancer

What are the prempro side effects? The biggest problem with Prempro are the dangerous side effects of long term use – Breast Cancer and Ovarian Cancer. Instead of helping, there are harmful and debilitating Prempro side effects. Prempro is no longer perceived as the magic little pill prescribed to improve the lives of millions of menopausal and postmenopausal women due to these dangerous Prempro side effects.

Solving the Prempro breast cancer mystery all started with the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), a 15-year study of ways to prevent heart disease, breast and colorectal cancer, and osteoporosis. The WHI consisted of a set of clinical studies and an observational study sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in collaboration with other units of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The study began in 1991 and involved more than 161,000 healthy postmenopausal women.

One of the clinical studies involved 16,608 women who still had their uterus intact, took estrogen plus progestin therapy or a placebo. A placebo is a substance that looks like the real drug but has no biologic effect. The main goal was to see if the estrogen plus progestin therapy would help prevent heart disease and hip fractures. Another goal was to determine if possible benefits were greater than possible risks for Prempro side effects of breast cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer, and blood clots.

Alert: Prempro breast cancer lawsuits in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and across the USA are based on the side effects of Prempro about which the manufacturer failed to warn doctors who were prescribing Prempro. Our Philadelphia law firm is familiar with the Prempro study that was stopped alarmingly early because after 5.2 years the risks of Prempro side effects far outweighed and outnumbered the benefits.

Results from the estrogen plus progestin study showed that the estrogen plus progestin therapy did not protect against heart disease and actually increased the risk of Prempro side effects such as breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Thus, cancer lawsuits are now being filed by our law firm and other attorneys in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania over Prempro due to the increased the chance of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. However, to its benefit—it reduced the risk of colorectal cancer and bone fractures.

Evidence is clear that Prempro side effects and other estrogen progestin combinations can actually harm perfectly healthy women. Women taking Prempro have a 29 percent higher risk of heart attack, 41 percent higher risk of Prempro stroke, and 26 percent higher risk of breast cancer. Prempro was also found to double the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Instead side effects of Prempro have perpetrated an increased risk of Prempro breast cancer, coronary heart disease, blood clots, stroke, intense gallbladder inflammation, lupus, uterine and vaginal cancer; and diminished capacity with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In women who take Prempro but haven’t had hysterectomies — endometrial cancer has shown to be a devastating Prempro side effect.

Monheit Law is investigating Prempro Cancer cases for long term users of Prempro who have developed either breast or ovarian cancer.
