There's something I do not understand.
I just watched a commercial by a certain well-known ambulance chas..sorry, med-mal attorney based somewhere in the North East.
They were talking about women who have taken certain birth control drugs who may have suffered from blood clots. That such women may be entitled to compensation.
I'm sorry, but this is a KNOWN possible side-effect and it is mentioned quite clearly in the package inserts.
If someone CHOOSES to take such a drug, knowing that there could be a serious consequence, how then is the drug company responsible?
I can understand if the drug company knows about an issue and doesn't mention it (hello, Fen-Phen!). But if it's a known possibility? Me no understandy.
