More than fifty women in Indiana have sued the manufacturers of the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella claiming that the drugs cause heart attacks and strokes.
The contraceptives’ packaging includes warnings of heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, and gallbladder disease but the attorneys involved in the class action lawsuit do not believe those warnings are enough. They contend that “more adequate” warnings or a recall are necessary.
Bayer, the drugs’ maker, released a statement saying- “The company is in the process of gathering information on these cases, but the complaints we have reviewed so far pertain to side effects that are warned about in the labeling of all oral contraceptives, including ours.”
Almost 30 percent of women who use oral contraceptives take either Yaz or Yasmin.
