Lawsuits filed against makers of Yasmin, Yaz – Blood clots – DVT’s – Stroke

NATIONAL – A flurry of law suits have been filed against Bayer HealthCare the makers of Yasmin & Yaz.  Many of the attorneys claim that the progestin” drospirenone “contained in the” oral contraceptives Yasmin and Yaz (both drugs drospirenone & ethinyl estradiol), “is the cause of health problems, including deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the deep veins), strokes, heart attacks, and gallbladder disease.”

Some “research on the issue is divided,” however, because “some studies have found” that drospirenone “poses no greater health risk than other birth control pills,” while others “show a six-fold greater risk of getting blood clots, even in young, healthy women.” –     TRIPP LAW FIRM – Personal Injury Law
