We are working with firms that are seeking victims who used the Mirena IUD birth control device, also know as The IUD, hormonal IUD, or intrauterine device. The Mirena IUD is an Intrauterine device (IUD) with progestogen, sold under the brand name Mirena among others, is a intrauterine device that releases the hormone levonorgestrel. Levonorgestrel has been linked to a severe complication called pseudotumor cerebri or sometimes called idiopathic intracranial hypertension which can be debilitating and cause permanent complications such as debilitating headaches, loss of vision and even blindness.
Adverse side effects and symptoms that have been linked to the Mirena IUD birth control devices include:
In Mirena IUD Pseudotumor Cerebri lawsuits, plaintiffs claim that Bayer knew of the risk of pseudotumor cerebri for women implanted with their IUD since the hormone levonorgestrel had already been medically associated with PTC. In fact, not only do the makers of other contraceptives that feature levonorgestrel provide warning of PTC and associated symptoms, but Bayer even warns of these side effects on Mirena labels in some other countries. The fact that Bayer warns of Mirena PTC risks in markets outside of the United States, say plaintiffs, is proof that the device manufacturer intentionally withheld warnings in this country.
Because doctors and patients in the United States were not provided with warnings of the risk of PTC associated with Mirena, many women now claim that their conditions were misdiagnosed and/or allowed to advance to such a state that they have now incurred permanent personal injury. Even the women who did not suffer permanent harm from Mirena PTC were forced to endure significant pain and suffering, which they believe could have bene avoided or diminished if Bayer had not acted in negligence.
