Wife has fibroid tumor and was sent to see Dr. Diane Brinkman at Austin Regional Clinic. Brinkman was only to do a sonogram. She gave my wife Levlite 28 birth control (30 day samples) with no instruction verbally or written. Berlex Labs did not have anything labeled or indicated on package with any warnings. nAfter 3 weeks wife developed massive blood clots in both lungs and legs. She was rushed to hospital and placed in ICU. She survived but now she can never work again, she is in constant pain and dicomfort, she has been diagnosed with anxiety and depression, she must take blood thinners for the rest of her life, the simplest task causes her heart to race and she becomes faint and weak. nBefore this she was in good health aside from fibroid tumor. And recently a growth is developing in her breast. Our medical expenses are skyrocketing and we are now on one income. I cannot take my wife to her regular cardiologist appointments because we can’t keep up with bills and medication expenses. And she needs to be seen by a vascular surgeon, lung specialists and have a mammogram immediatley, but we simply can’t afford it. nSo we want to warn the public about using Levlite 28. Regardless of what any doctor or lawyer will tell you, this drug is dangerous if not prescribed correctly. Do not allow any physician casually offer you samples without being given verbal and/or written warnings. Not all women, regardless of age are educated on the dangers of birth control. nMy wife was 52 years old when given this drug and she never used birth control before. She trusted that the doctor was knowledgable on the risk. But on that count she was wrong. nCalvinnRound Rock, TexasU.S.A.
