Advisory panel sought for Yaz study

Posted on September 28th, 2011 No Comments

The FDA released a note warning of the increased risk of blood clot associated with new generation birth control, Yaz or Yasmin.

It did not say for sure that using the birth control will lead to this, but regulators stated that they are concerned of higher risks. Yasmin and Yaz are both very popular birth control pills and they both contain an ingredient, drospirenone, which may cause Deep-vein thrombosis.

This occurs when a blood clot happens in an extremity, such as the leg, and they become very dangerous if the clot moves to another vital organ. Symptoms include chest pain, leg pain and difficulty breathing. Preliminary results show that women who take drospirenone-containing birth control pills are 50 percent more likely to develop these blood clots than woman who took other contraceptives.

If you or a loved one has been taking either of these birth control pills and suffered a blood clot without being warning of the increased risk, contact the Yasmin blood clot lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187.

Another 53 people file lawsuits against Yasmin, Yaz

Posted on September 14th, 2011 No Comments

YIn the St. Clair County Circuit Court, another 53 people have filed lawsuits against the makers of Yasmin and Yaz claiming that the use of the pill caused them to develop serious health issues such as gallstones and blood clots.

The plaintiffs in the suit are residence in multiple different states including New Jersey, Delaware, South Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin, Washington and Kansas.

The plaintiffs allege that Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the make of the drug, did not warn them of the risks before they started taking the pill.  These oral contraceptive pills contain a hormone called drospierenone that can cause high levels of potassium. If levels of potassium get too high, a condition called hyperkalemia can occur. This can then lead to multiple other side effects.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a health condition after taking either of these oral contraceptives, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Yasmin blood clotting lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling  800-761-3187 today.
