The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "We have heard from women from all over the world related to our efforts to identify victims of severe medical side effects, who were also using the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or the generic version of these birth control pills called Ocella. In some instances the victims were in their teens, and they were using these birth control pills for acme issues. Unfortunately the medical side effects we are talking about include a pulmonary embolism, a heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, or other severe medical complications. Further, there has not been much publicity about these birth control pills, and possible severe medical complications, so we are asking mothers, sisters, friends, or loved ones, to ask any young woman who had an out of the blue stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or blood clotting, if she was also using these specific types of birth control pills. If the answer is yes, we want the victim, or their family members to contact the Johnson Law Group."
As a background, in September of 2009, the US FDA released a warning letter sent to Bayer Pharmaceuticals over Yaz & Yasmin. The letter indicates that the drug maker hid out-of-specification test results for key ingredients in the birth control pills. Out of fear the time to get identified will come, and go the US Drug Watchdog is urging women who used the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or their generic version Ocella, and then suffered severe side effects such as a pulmonary embolism, a heart attack, a stroke, a blood clot, or other severe medical conditions to contact the Johnson Law Group at 1-800-996-9900 for a evaluation of their legal rights. http://www.johnsonlawgroup.com/

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug's use. We are attempting to change this very sad fact with aggressive initiatives focused on increasing public awareness, and hopefully suggesting possible help for victims." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
