Dangerous Drugs Yaz

One of the drugs that are marketed as birth control pills which have recently been determined to have long-lasting and permanent side-effects and injuries is Yaz or Yasmin. The pharmaceutical company Berlex, now owned by Bayer Healthcare, manufactured and distributed the birth control pill Yaz. Teva, another birth control pharmaceutical company, made a generic version of the Yasmin birth control pill. If you took Yaz and you have been injured or are suffering serious side-effects, please speak with our Yaz attorney for a free consultation.

Birth control pills are a hormonal oral contraceptive which contained drospirenone which a synthetic progestin. Some of the more serious side-effects include blood clots, heart attacks and even strokes. Because these side-effects were so serious, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) warned the manufacturers to post warnings on their products of these potential side-effects. However, many of these advertising warnings occurred to late, and many of the damage and the injuries were already sustained by users of Yaz or Yasmin. Our attorneys have therefore created these informational pages to assist you in determining your legal rights in seeking compensation for these companies for your injuries. Some of the most severe reactions women have experienced while taking Yaz have included severe allergic reactions such as:

  • chest tightness
  • difficulty breathing
  • face swelling
  • fainting

  • lip swelling
  • liver problems
  • mouth swelling
  • rash
  • tongue swelling
  • unusual / severe vaginal bleeding
  • unusual tiredness or weakness
  • vaginal irritation or discharge
  • vision changes

Along with these allergic reactions, some of the most common side-effects of taking the birth control Yaz includes:
