The latest liability lawsuit against Bayer’s Yasmin or YAZ birth-control pill claims the drug contains a dangerous diuretic.
In a lawsuit filed in Westchester County Court in New York, Alishia Dianne Seagraves claims that she is at greater risk of serious side effects including heart arrhythmia, myocardial infarction, stroke, blood clots, embolisms, and kidney or gall bladder disease, after taking the pill.
Yasmin and YAZ create unique and dangerous risks in women because they contain a diuretic that has never been marketed in the United States. Studies have shown that the resulting electrolyte imbalance can lead to potentially fatal hyperkalemia arrhythmia and deep-vein thrombosis.
