U.S. regulators add information to Yasmin warning labels

Posted on April 11th, 2012 No Comments

Bayer AG’s birth control pills, Yasmin and Yaz, will now feature updated information on the warning labels that claim that the pill may increase the risk of blood clots.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that although most common birth controls increase the risk of blood clots, those that contain drospirenone, a synthetic hormone, have an increased risk of blood clots.

The FDA made this statement on the topic: “The revised drug labels will report that some epidemiologic studies reported as high as a three-fold increase in the risk of blood clots for drospirenone-containing products … whereas other epidemiological studies found no additional risk.”

Clots in blood vessels can be fatal if they travel to critical organs in the body such as the lungs. This warning label was announced after the FDA conducted their own study on the birth control and found that the blood clot risk for these pills is 10 in every 10,000.
If you or a loved one has taken Yasmin and you have developed a blood clot as a result, you need representation on your side. Contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
