Life with IIH,
It looks like someone is telling them now and finally. There are various law firms that appear to be bringing a case against these pharm co's. Maybe it will help you.
Life with IIH on Aug, 23, 2014:
30 F diagnosed in November 2012
Implanon causes IIH. It is maybe listed in the side effects/warning label...?. Due to it being the predecessor to Mirena IUD the FDA had to eat their words and a lot of other things and fix it. So did the pharm co that makes it. Except they didn't tell consumers. Mirena does not list it in the US unfortunately... But Europe does... Mirena caused mine and I was a healthy, vibrant woman. God bless you and I hope you have more good days than bad.

I'm 22 years old, had first implant at 16 was fine. 2nd at 19 and have been I'll since, unsure if related though. IBS occurred within several months of it being changed and 2 months ago I was diagnosed with IIH after papilloedema, MRI , lumbar puncture and only thing being found was high CSF. Just had removed to see if IIH improves,. Hopefully ibs will aswell but no one has told me this is a possibility , I'm just being hopeful! Implanon was due for removal in August anyhow.
