Yaz Side Effects Not Uncommon, According to The Eichholz Law Firm
If you have experienced an adverse side effect linked to using Yaz, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover expenses.
Yaz was the best-selling birth control pill in the United States in 2008 and 2009. Millions of women have been prescribed Yaz since it first launched over a decade ago. Unfortunately, for many women taking Yaz, it has become a nightmare. Thousands of women are currently suing Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Yaz and Yasmin for their condition.
Several studies have linked Yaz users with higher risks for blood clots. A study by the British Medical Journal found that Yaz birth control pills have a greater risk of causing blood clots than other birth control pills.
This same study also found that Yaz users are at increased risk for venous thrombosis, a dangerous blood clot that forms in the vein. Another adverse side effect of Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella is deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is when a blood clot forms in a deep vein, such as the leg or pelvis. Deep vein thrombosis can be extremely dangerous.
A complication of DVT is a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot that travels to the lungs. Pulmonary embolisms can be fatal to patients. Many women have complained that they have developed these dangerous health conditions after taking Yaz.
For more information on the legal rights which may be available to Yaz consumers and their families, The Eichholz Law Firm is offering free case evaluations to anyone who believes that they may have a claim.
