SC Woman Sues Bayer Over YAZ Side Effects

Posted on November 12th, 2009 No Comments

A woman in South Carolina has filed a personal injury lawsuit against the Bayer Corporation and Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc, over the severe side effects of the prescription birth control drug Yaz.

33 year-old Candice Atkinson charged that Yaz is a dangerous prescription drug that is sold without adequate warnings about the risk of serious injuries.

Atkinson was prescribed the drug to treat a skin condition, she now says that Bayer improperly advertised and over-promoted Yaz for uses such as treating acne, knowing that the risks far outweighed the benefits of Yaz.

Atkinson said in court “Bayer promoted Yaz with the slogan ‘the difference a little chemistry can make… What Bayer did not disclose was how negative that difference can be. Yaz gave me life-threatening injuries that have forever altered my life.”

Atkinson suffered multiple blood clots in both lungs and gallstones for which she had to undergo gall bladder surgery.

Women Files Lawsuit Against Yasmin Birth-Control

Posted on November 5th, 2009 No Comments

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.
