Attorneys for Yasmin Lawsuits

When your doctor gives you a prescription, you trust that he or she is keeping you safe. However, when drug manufacturers fail to properly research the pharmaceuticals they market, or a doctor fails to tell you about the possible side effects, you are the one who suffers.

Yasmin, or Yaz, is a birth control drug that has been linked to several life-threatening conditions. At The Law Offices of Brian Timothy Meyers, we are familiar with this dangerous prescription drug and we can help you file a Yasmin birth control lawsuit.

Yasmin Risks and Side Effects

Yasmin and Yaz, a similar drug by the same manufacturer (Bayer), and the generic form, Ocella, are the only birth control pills available in the U.S. that contain the ingredient drospirenone. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), drospirenone is linked to numerous heart problems, unsafe levels of potassium in the body (hyperkalemia), organ failure and other damaging conditions, including:

  • Heart attacks
  • Heart palpitations
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Gallbladder failure
  • Gallstones
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Blood clots
  • Stroke
  • Pancreatitis
  • Organ failure

If you were taking Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella and experienced harmful side effects, or a loved one suffered a wrongful death due to a resulting condition, talk to one of our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers as soon as possible. Class action lawsuits have been filed against Bayer and many individual cases are currently in progress throughout the U.S. Some lawsuits also allege false advertising, as Bayer’s initial TV commercials incorrectly claimed Yasmin could alleviate PMS (premenstrual syndrome).
