Once one of the most popular birth control medications in the U.S., Yaz has since become the focus of thousands of lawsuits, as women who have been prescribed the drug have reported serious side effects in their legal claims against the drugвЂ™s manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals. The drug has been previously prescribed to women ages 14 years and up, as both a method of oral birth control, but also as a treatment for acne. Women are seeking compensation from the manufacturer of both Yaz and Yasmin over these serious side effects.
For several years, women have reported serious, life-threatening ailments and injuries, allegedly from using Yaz. These side effects include pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder disease, heart attacks, strokes, and sudden death. Despite being subject to the same clinical trials and FDA approval as all other prescription medications, it is more difficult to determine side effects for contraceptive drugs like Yaz and Yasmin because they lack placebos in tests and trials.
