How can you hold Pfizer responsible?

DEPO PROVERA contraceptive injection lawsuits for people who took the Depo Provera birth control injection?

On November 18, 2004, the doubts about the depo provera contraceptive injection) came to the surface again when Pfizer finally sent health care professionals a letter updating them about safety information regarding DEPO PROVERA. This is the culmination of post-marketing studies that were promissed in 1992.

As a result of post-marketing studies, conducted separately with adults and with adolescents, it appears now that Pfizer knew of clinical bone denstiy test data regarding the use of Depo Provera Contraceptive Injection and its associated effect on bone mineral density (BMD).

Pfizer data suggests that women who use Depo Provera Contraceptive Injection may lose significant bone mineral density BMD. Doctors are advised to carefully review the Boxed Warning which has been added to the prescribing information regarding this contraceptive injection:

  • Women who use Depo Provera Contraceptive Injection may lose significant bone mineral density.
  • Bone mineral loss is greater with increasing duration of use and the impact on bone density may not be completely reversible.
  • It is unknown if use of Depo Provera Contraceptive Injection during adolescence or early adulthood, a critical period of bone density accretion, will reduce peak bone mineral mass and increase the risks of hip and joint fractures in later life.
  • Depo Provera Contraceptive Injection should be used as a long-term birth control method -- longer than 2 years -- only if other birth control methods are inadequate.
DEPO PROVERA is still being marketed by Pfizer for women who are "too busy" to deal with traditional birth control methods. These provera contraceptive injection users may feel carefree today but could possibly crippled with loss of bone mineral density (BMD) tomorrow.

In the first quarter of 2005, Pfizer reported a net income of $301 million. As of 2005, DEPO PROVERA has been used internationally for almost 25 years and in the United States for 13 years. In 2004, Pfizer issued a new warning label only in November 2004 and advises of depo provera osteoporosis - permanent bone mineral density loss. What's wrong with this picture? Get a bone density test now to see if your bone mineral is impacted negatively.
