Yaz and Yasmin Lawsuits Still Being Filed

Yaz and Yasmin Lawsuits Still Being Filed

Posted By Golomb & Honik, P.C. || 24-Jul-2014

In spite of the massive number of dangerous drug lawsuits already filed against Bayer Pharmaceuticals in association with the birth control medications Yasmin and Yaz, there are still many more claims on the way. Currently, there are 3,900 Yasmin and Yaz claims pending, and approximately 7,660 plaintiffs have already settled with the pharmaceutical company. At the moment, Bayer has paid approximately $1.575 billion in damages related to these dangerous drugs.

Plaintiffs in Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits claim Bayer failed to properly warn women about the harmful side effects of the birth control medication. Some of the serious issues associated with taking Yasmin and Yaz include:

  • Blood clots
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Myocardial infarction

These side effects have been linked to drospirenone, a synthetic progesterone found in these birth control medications. Drospirenone results in elevated potassium levels in the body, which can lead to the development of the serious health conditions listed above.
