Wyeth Premarin, Prempro & Premphase HRT Class Action Lawsuit Certified
By Kimberly Mirando
A federal judge has certified a class action lawsuit concerning the prescription HRT medications Premarin, Prempro and Premphase – all manufactured by Wyeth. California residents who purchased the hormone replacement therapies between 1995 and 2003 have until December 19, 2012 to decide if they wish to remain in the class action lawsuit.
The Wyeth HRT class action lawsuit accuses the pharmaceutical giant of violating California laws by misrepresenting the benefits and/or failing to disclose the risks of the prescription hormone replacement therapy (HRT) medications Premarin, Prempro and Premphase.
Class Members of the Wyeth HRT class action lawsuit include all California residents who purchased the drugs in California between January 1995 and January 2003 and were exposed to oral or written statements from Wyeth or from a healthcare provider, or written statements in publications, in which it was represented that:
– Premarin, Prempro and/or Premphase lowered cardiovascular, Alzheimer’s and/or dementia risk; or
– Premarin, Prempro and/or Premphase did not increase breast cancer risk.
Class Members do not need to do anything to stay in the class action lawsuit. However, Class Members that do not want to be legally bound by what the Court does must exclude themselves from the case by December 19, 2012.
Wyeth denies it did anything wrong and the class action lawsuit is headed to trial. Oftentimes, before a class action lawsuit makes it to trial, a class action settlement may be reached.
