Some Woman Have Complained of Serious Yaz Side Effects

Across the country, some women taking the popular oral contraceptives Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella are reporting serious side effects. Those taking the oral contraceptive should seek immediate medical help for any of the following symptoms to avert serious or even fatal complications:
  • chest pain
  • pain in the jaw, neck or shoulders
  • paralysis on one side of the body
  • problems breathing
  • problems speaking
  • inflammation and warmth in the legs
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • vision problems

Adverse effects of Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella can lead to severe, even fatal, conditions including deep vein thrombosis, strokes, blood clots, heart attacks, gall bladder damage, and kidney problems. Tragically, in some instances, women taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella birth control have died.
Drospirenone, the hormone contained in these relatively new birth control pills, can elevate potassium to dangerously high levels, causing these serious and even life- threatening conditions.

Yaz lawsuits filed against Bayer, the oral contraceptive’s manufacturer, claim that the pharmaceutical corporation failed to adequately warn users of the increased risk of side effects. Plaintiffs allege that their decision to use Yaz was based on a persuasive ad campaign. The campaign faced scrutiny from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to the FDA, Bayer’s television and print advertisements made false claims and downplayed health risks. Bayer’s marketing campaign was deemed misleading and the company was required to change its advertising. The FDA also required that the new ads for Yaz be restricted to FDA approved applications of the oral contraceptive. Attorneys General in over 25 states also petitioned Bayer for more honest advertising.
