Yaz®/Yasmin® Birth Control Drugs linked to blood clots, heart attack and other life-threatening side effects.
What is YAZ®?
Yaz® is a popular Birth Control Pill Linked to Deaths and Serious Heart Complications. Women taking the drug to prevent becoming pregnant or to treat emotional and physical symptoms of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) and moderate acne have suffered blood clots, stroke, heart attacks, and even died as a result.
The drug, made by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., has been blamed for causing at least 50 deaths in the United States between 2004 and 2008. Many injuries and the lawsuits filed on behalf of women who claim they were injured or died as a result of taking Yaz keep coming.
Yaz was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2006. A lower-dose version of the same drug, called Yasmin®, was approved in 2001. Yaz® uses a different kind of hormone, DRSP (drospirenone), than other birth-control pills. DRSP may increase potassium in the body, raising the risk of severe health complications for women with kidney (renal) disease and cardiovascular conditions.
