West Palm Beach Prescription Drug Negligence Attorneys
Yaz is a birth control pill manufactured and marketed by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. It has also been prescribed to help with the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, or PMDD. Similar drugs have also been marketed under the names Yasmin and Ocella. The generic name for Yaz is drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol.
Representing Yaz victims throughout Florida and across the United States.
Shortly after Yaz hit the market, Bayer was forced to pull two of its ads because they overstated the benefits of taking the drug and failed to adequately warn potential users about the possible side effects, including severe blood clots, gallbladder and kidney damage and other issues.
As a result of taking Yaz, young women were put at extreme risk of serious health complications. The excessive blood clotting caused some victims to suffer strokes or heart attacks, and others underwent emergency cholecystectomies to have their gallbladders removed. A minimum of 50 deaths worldwide have been attributed to the use of Yaz.
Bayer's standpoint has always been that they warned consumers about the risks associated with using Yaz, but it is clear that they have not done nearly enough. Doctors need to be fully educated about the drug, how it should be used and what all of the risks are so that they have the necessary information to help patients decide if those risks outweigh the benefits.
