The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) Issues Safety Alert on Yaz - Yazmin - Ocella
The FDA has determined that the Yaz birth control pill has been linked to dangerous heart problems. The manufacturer of Yaz has been warned that the pill increases the risks for:
- Blood Clots
- Heart Attack
- Gallbladder Disease
- Hyperkalemia in certain high-risk patients
Additionally, Yaz mixed with other drugs can cause a rise in potassium which may lead to fatal arrhythmias. The manufacturers of Yaz have been in trouble with the FDA for marketing the drug as a cure for headaches and acne, uses of the pill that were not approved by the FDA. If you or a family member took Yaz and suffered heart or other serious medical problems, contact our office to get information about a Yaz lawsuit.
In addition, Drug Watch reports that the manufacturers of the drug have been cited for marketing irregularities which downplayed risks and misled some consumers to use the product for mild acne problems.
All told, many different problems have been associated with this product. It is vital for injured victims and their families to seek legal representation as soon as possible to protect possible legal claims for the harm.
