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.
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
- 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.
