Yasmin Side Effects

Posted on March 11th, 2010 No Comments

Yasmin is an older version of the popular birth control pill Yaz, both of which have been linked with potentially life-threatening side effects.

Yasmin was originally developed by Berlex, which was later acquired by Bayer Healthcare. The oral contraceptive was aggressively marketed by the drug company and quickly became their best selling product. The United States Food and Drug Administration, however, found that the drug was marketed without adequate warnings about side effects.

Women who have used Yasmin or Yaz birth control have suffered serious side effects from the drug including heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, gallbladder disease, and even sudden death. Multiple lawsuits against the drug’s maker have been filed all over the U.S.

A Short History of Yaz Birth Control

Posted on February 18th, 2010 No Comments

In 2006 a birth control pill was released that claimed to be “beyond birth control” but two years later the drug’s manufacturer was found by the FDA to be deceptive and irresponsible in their marketing.

That birth control pill was called Yaz or Yasmin. The contraceptive promised to treat acne and premenstrual syndrome in their advertisements, but this was not true. In 2008 the Food and Drug Administration ordered Yaz to pull their advertisements, citing the fact that the drug had never been approved to treat acne or PMS. A further investigation proved that Bayer, the maker of the drugs, was deceptive and misleading in their advertisements by failing to list the serious side effects of the pills.

Bayer tried to appease the FDA by running a $20 million corrective ad campaign, but the company has done nothing to help women who were injured by the drug. Numerous lawsuits have been filed against the company by women who have suffered such serious side effects as heart attack, stroke, liver tumors, blood clots, and deep vein thrombosis.

Over 50 Women Involved in Indiana Class-Action Yasmin Lawsuit

Posted on February 12th, 2010 No Comments

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.
