FDA Takes Action Against Hormone Therapy Drugs

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken action against seven different pharmacies for their false and misleading claims over the safety and effectiveness of their “bio-identical hormone replacement therapy” drugs (BHRTs). The BRHTs were being promoted by these pharmaceutical companies as being better than FDA-approved menopausal hormone therapy drugs.

The pharmacies also claimed these BHRT drugs prevent and or treat Alzheimer’s, stroke, cancer, and other sicknesses, which is scientifically unproven at this time. The drugs all contain estriol, a compound that isn’t approved and which has not been proven safe or effective for human use.

Use of unapproved FDA drugs can result in serious Florida drug injury and possibly death. Florida drug injuries occur far too commonly and can have serious health complications.
