Summary of Packet:

Mirena®, a birth control intrauterine device that releases the hormone levonorgestrel, has been linked to idiopathic intracranial hypertension, or pseudotumor cerebri – a pressure build-up in the brain that mimics the symptoms of a brain tumor. In April 2017, over 100 cases were consolidated in an MDL against Mirena’s manufacturer, Bayer, alleging that Bayer failed to adequately investigate or warn physicians and patients of the potential side effects of Mirena.
