This kind of stupid and ignorent jurors, along with the theives they call lawyers is the reason drugs cost a fortune for everybody else. manufacturers are the only ones that do research and introduce new drugs to the public and this is the reason for the uncontrolable prices. You can always find bleeding hearts that let their emotions over-ride their common sence, if indeed they have any to start with. GREED GREED GREED

Agree. No one shoved those drugs on those women. We all take drugs...we all take a chance, they all come with warnings. You agree to take them, then you are going to have to accept what they may to to you. Sad, but true.

I think I will sue a paper company. I got a cut fron the edge of the paper and it caused an infection and no warning!
I do not mean to make light of this. Cancer is scary thing, but to sue? Everytime we turn around, someone is suing for something. My God people, give it a break.

In reading these posts I see people who have not been touched by cancer and don't know the facts regarding the drug companies that supress information regarding the safety of the drug. Perhaps learning the facts will help you understand what is going on.

If there was a frivolous lawsuit, it was the Vioxx lawsuit not the prempro class action. I am one of the woman (I was among the 1st 100 women to file a claim)and I am 100% sure that prempro caused my breast cancer. I had to have a mastectomy and can remember the pain and horror still even though it was almost 5 years ago. I am one of 9 siblings, 2nd youngest, and no one in my immediate nor extended has any cancer or any kind. I am the only one that took prempro for at least 8 years. I didn't realize (and I am sure the doctor didn't either) that prempro ingredient, while it has a long pharmacutcal name is PREGNANT HORSE'S URINE! That's what hormones are. Would anyone take that on purpose! I don't think anyone of you understand the facts - proof is in many ways including the pathology reports from the hospital and doctors whom I think know more than any of you. Tell me why since prempro is now a much dose, the incidence of breast cancer has dropped to an all time low - please, make some sense here. Wyeth needs to be punished for ruining so many lives and know the drug was dangerous. Just shut up!

I took premarin for a very short time and during that time, I developed a cancerous breast tumor. And I am the first in my family to have cancer. Last December I had a bilateral mastectomy and so far, my prognosis is good.
I also believe that the drug caused it. I believe, too, that one of these days we will learn how dangerous even birth control pills are for women. Have we all been guinea pigs? So frightening!

It is amazing how many women there are out there just like you - no history in the family, yet after taking Prempro developing breast cancer. You are right - now that women are refusing to take HRT there is now a drop in breast cancer. It is also amazing that judges are throwing out cases against Wyeth - need to do a little research there!

Dear Mary: I am sorry re your breast cancer, I can certainly relate. Did you take premarin and provera or just premparin? If so, I hope you have talked to a lawyer because this just isn't right, most of these women are well over 50 - the time for menopause and while no one shoved prempro down my throat, I was told it would prevent me from heart attacks, blood clots, breat cancer, and help with the hot flashes and night sweats. Well, after my mastectomy and since then taking cancer medications that cause very severe hot flashes and night sweats and just a joke of what was told to me. Just wait till the women taking the lower dose of prempro in 7 to 10 years when there is another spike in breast cancer, maybe then they will stop this hormone crap altogether.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
