Have You Taken Yaz? The Contraceptive Has Been Linked to Deaths and Serious Heart Complications

If you have taken the popular brand of oral contraceptive Yaz, you may be at risk of suffering a life-threatening stroke, heart attack, blood clots, and other severe injuries. At least 50 deaths in the United States between 2004 and 2008 have been linked to the use of Yaz. The birth-control pill also is approved to treat emotional and physical symptoms of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) and moderate acne.

If you or a loved one has taken Yaz and suffered heart attack, stroke, blood clots, or another injury, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. If a loved one has died as the result of taking Yaz, you and your family may qualify for damages to compensate you for the wrongful death. Our aggressive, experienced personal injury attorneys are dedicated to helping people who are injured by Yaz and other dangerous drugs.

What is Yaz?

Yaz is a prescription drug made by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. that was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2006. Yasmin, a lower-dose version of the same drug, was approved in 2001. Yaz uses DRSP (drospirenone), a different kind of hormone than is used in other birth-control pills. DRSP may result in an increase of potassium in the body, which raises the risk of severe health complications for women with kidney (renal) disease and cardiovascular conditions.

Yaz Injuries

Women taking Yaz have reported suffering the following injuries:

FDA Orders Bayer to Correct Deceptive Yaz Advertising

In October 2008, the Food and Drug Administration ordered the makers of Yaz to correct two 60-second television advertisements for their product. Officials concluded the TV spots contained inaccurate and misleading statements that overstated the efficacy of the drug by suggesting it was approved and effective for treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and mild acne, which it is not.
