  • You can't do anything. That's one of the side effects listed. Unfortunately not everyone does research opbefore going on their bc. Also, it's disappointing most doctors don't talk about the side effects with the patients.

  • but thats not the case, when i was 15 that was not one of the side effects, it just came out with a black box warning or what ever, in 2007 so i do have a case i would think

  • The suit was in 2004 so your doctor should have told you.

  • I think most doctors think the patients should do research while the patients feel the doctors should tell them the side effects. I read every form that comes with any medication that comes into my house.
