It sounds like the pharm co is covered by the physician's information sheet, and the onus (legally) appears to be on the physicians.
At worst, the drs are just listening to the pharm co reps about Mirena regarding side effects and not reading the doctor's information provided by the manufacturer.
possibly, they are reading the information sheet and assuming that the side effects are negligible.
So for the petition--here is my basic idea:
We express concern that women are being given the Mirena without being informed of the risks, even though side effects are described in the doctor information from the manufacturers, and doctors are instructed to share the information with the patient. We can list the side effects commonly experienced by users reporting to this and other forums, and the fact that in many cases, doctors are denying the possible link between Mirena and the symptoms. The resistance from the doctors suggests that they are alarmingly ill-informed, or are being purposely obtuse, resulting in prolonged suffering and extensive medical expenses while trying to diagnose another culprit. Since we are not being served by the manufacturer or our physicians, we ask that the AMA require doctors to discuss the risks related to the Mirena before insertion.
In the comments section, we can paste our own experiences/symptoms.
