Popular birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella linked to potentially serious health risks. The injury lawyers at Morgan & Morgan are alerting consumers of these side effects and reviewing possible lawsuits.
(PRWEB) February 24, 2010 -- The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan, PA are currently evaluating potential legal claims for users of the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella who have suffered serious side effects or injury. Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella are once a day oral contraceptives that have been linked to dangerous health problems, including heart attacks, strokes, gallbladder problems, and blood clots.
Yasmin and Yaz are two separate but related birth control pills manufactured by Bayer Healthcare. Ocella is the generic version of Yasmin. These oral contraceptives, which are taken to prevent unwanted pregnancies, contain a different kind of hormone called drsp, or drospirenone. Drospirenone can cause increased potassium levels in some women, which can lead to health problems. People with kidney, liver, or adrenal disease are at an increased risk for developing negative Yaz side effects from using these birth control drugs.
Several Yaz lawsuits were filed in the summer of 2009, alleging that Bayer overstated the benefits of Yaz while failing to warn women that it could put them at risk for potentially life threatening injuries. It is expected that similar Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits will be filed in the future. Women may be entitled to financial compensation if they have suffered any of the following side effects: heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), gallbladder disease, or blood clot.
