Prempro Information and Warnings

Prempro, also known as conjugated estrogen (generic medroxyprogesterone acetate or MPA) is the top selling hormone replacement therapy (HRT) drug. Though the risk of deadly side effects from Prempro have been known for many years and the FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration) has required its most serious black box warning on Prempro, physicians have continued to prescribe the drug to millions of women.

Prempro was in the news at the end of 2005 with the release of several new studies linking it to deadly side effects. In November a study done by Sweden’s Karolinska Institute was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. That study found that women who drank alcohol and took HRT medications like Prempro had an increased risk of breast cancer. Also in November, a study published in the Journal of Obstetrics & Gynocology reported that Prempro increased the risk of urinary incontinence in postmenopausal women.

The March 1, 2006 International Journal of Cancer reported a study that found postmenopausal women who took HRT medication had an increased risk of breast cancer across racial lines. In July of 2005 the United Nations reclassified Prempro from “possible carcinogenic” to “carcinogenic”.

Most of these studies did not have particularly new information. A 2002 study by the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Women’s Health Initiative study, found such a significant increase in the risk of strokes, blood clots, heart attacks, and breast cancer in the study participants using Prempro that they cancelled the study 3 years before it was scheduled to end to protect the lives and health of the study participants.

The NIH study found that Prempro did produce some benefit in reducing the risk of colorectal cancer and hip fractures, but the increased risk for so many other life-threatening problems meant that the adverse side effects of Prempro outweighed any risks. That study recommended that women using Prempro stop using it and talk to their health care practitioners about alternatives.

If you are taking Prempro, you should consult your health care provider about the danger of side effects. If you have already been damaged because you used Prempro, you may have the basis for a Prempro lawsuit. You should get your case evaluated as soon as possible by a competent Prompro attorney.
