Did you suffer a blood clot injury after taking Yaz or Yasmin?

REAL-TIME DATA: YAZ COMPLICATIONS REPORTED TO FDA

The widely used birth control pill known as Yaz is available under many names - Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz, Occella, Gianvi and by its active ingredient, drospirenone.

All forms of Yaz contain warnings for certain common clinical side effects, including headaches, fatigue, nausea or vomiting, breast pain, irritability and mood swings, menstrual irregularities, decreased libido or weight gain.

Since December 2011, the FDA has also required a warning that Yaz may cause blood clots, leading to deep vein thrombosis, stroke, pulmonary embolism or heart attacks.

However, a review of adverse event reports filed with the FDA, as listed below, shows women taking Yaz have experienced many different side effects not listed on the drug, from pancreatitis to blurred vision.

The FDA now requires that drug manufacturers submit regular reports of patient side effects, which is maintained on the Adverse Events Reporting System (AERS). DrugNews gathers this information on a regular basis to keep consumers informed of possible risks from drugs like Yaz.

So far, Bayer has paid almost $2 billion to women suffering Yaz side effects. If you have more questions about these complications, or would like to speak with a lawyer about a claim, contact DrugNews today.
