Yasmin Side Effects Lawsuit

Yaz, Yasmin, and the generic form Ocella is a type of birth control originally developed by Berlex Laboratories (a U.S. affiliate of Schering AG, Germany) that was first approved for use in 2001. In 2006, the drug company, Bayer, acquired Berlex and marketed a more recent version of Yaz, called Yasmin. Ocella is a generic version. Yasmin, Yaz, and Ocella all contain drospirenone, a "fourth generation" progestin. No other birth control pills contain drospirenone, except for these.

 

Serious Side Effects of Yasmin and Yaz

Yasmin contains a different type of hormone known as drsp or drospirenone. Drospirenone can increase a user's potassium levels. This can lead to serious health problems, which are particularly dangerous for those with kidney, liver and adrenal disease. In addition, other serious Yasmin side effects include:

  • Yasmin Heart attack
  • Yasmin Stroke
  • Yasmin Blood clots
  • Yasmin Benign liver tumors
  • Yasmin Deep vein thrombosis
  • Yasmin Pulmonary embolism
  • Yasmin Sudden death
  • Yasmin Gallbladder problems

 

Other Yasmin Side Effects That May Be Experienced

  • Severe allergic reactions including rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing.
  • Tightness in the chest swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue.
  • Fainting
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Symptoms of liver problems
  • Unusual or severe vaginal bleeding
  • Unusual tiredness or weakness
  • vaginal irritation or discharge
  • Vision changes (eg, sudden vision loss, double vision)

Deceptive Yasmin Advertising

Bayer has also improperly encouraged the use of Yasmin for conditions other than those in which the drug has been approved for. These false claims involved the ability of Yasmin to treat premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and all types of acne. In October 2008, the FDA issued a warning letter for deceptive claims. The FDA said claims made in the ads left the impression that Yasmin was a treatment for PMS, when in fact it is only meant as a treatment for PMDD. The FDA also said that both ads left the impression that Yasmin is approved as a treatment for acne of all severities when Yaz is only approved to treat moderate acne.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has sent several warning letters to Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. for what the FDA termed “misleading” advertising spots it found “particularly troubling” because they served to “undermine the communication of important risk information, minimizing these risks and misleadingly suggesting that Yaz is safer than has been demonstrated by substantial evidence or substantial clinical experience.”
