Premarin lawsuit


This class action is settled and is now accepting claims. If you believe you are a candidate - please read below.

Premarin is conjugated estrogen produced by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. Conjugated estrogen such as Premarin was first marketed in Canada in 1941. It became widely used in the 1960s. An estrogen plus progestin regimen became widespread in the late 1970s when hormone therapy added a progestin (a synthetic form of progesterone) to estrogen to counter an increased risk of endometrial cancer associated with taking estrogen alone. Premarin and Premplus are prescribed to women to treat the symptoms of menopause and are known as hormone replacement therapy (“HRT”).

The Premarin lawsuit alleges that prolonged use of HRT drugs carries an increased risk of serious health issues.
