Mirena PTC Lawsuit

Mirena® IUD Lawsuit

Those Diagnosed with PTC or IIH may Qualify for a Cash Award

The Mirena® IUD works by releasing a hormone called levonorgestrel into the body. Levonorgestrel has been linked to side effects that look like the symptoms of a brain tumor, known as pseudotumor cerebri or PTC. Mirena has also been linked to idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), a condition where there is increased pressure around the brain that, like PTC, causes symptoms similar to those caused by a brain tumor. If you use the Mirena® IUD and have been diagnosed with PTC or IIH, call 800-383-9952 for a free, no obligation claim review.

What are PTC and IIH?

Pseudo means fake or false and cerebri refers to the brain; pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) literally means “false brain tumor.” PTC is also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) or benign intracranial hypertension. PTC and IIH have some of the same side effects on the brain as a real brain tumor. An actual brain tumor causes side effects by placing pressure on the brain as it grows and takes up space, a PTC places pressure on the brain due to the build-up of cerebrospinal fluid inside the skull. This pressure on the brain can cause several side effects such as severe headaches.

Symptoms resulting from PTC/IIH include:
Moderate to Severe Headaches
Ringing In The Ears
Nausea
Vomiting
Dizzines

Many doctors are not aware of the link between the Mirena IUD and PTC and IIH. As a result, many women using the Mirena® IUD who are diagnosed with PTC or IIH are not advised to remove their IUD and the symptoms continue.
