WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH YASMIN/YAZ?
Yaz was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March 2006 as a once-daily birth control pill to prevent pregnancy. Several months later its use was expanded to include treatment of symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), which carries severe emotional and physical symptoms that can interfere with daily activity. Then in January 2007, the drug was also approved to treat moderate acne in women.
Despite the highly marketed benefits of the drug, several studies have linked Yaz to serious side effects, including increased risks for blood clots.
In December 2008, the FDA issued a black box warning – its strongest drug warning – that cautioned women who smoke about an increased risk for serious cardiovascular side effects.
Countless women have since filed lawsuits against Bayer claiming that the pharmaceutical giant touted the benefits of the drug while downplaying its dangerous side effects, which seriously injured women across the country.
Women who have suffered after taking Yaz or Yasmin may be entitled to file a Yaz lawsuit to recover compensation for the damages they suffered. Contact our accomplished team today to learn more.
