Important Safety Information

What is YAZ® prescribed for?

For women who choose the Pill for birth control, YAZ is approved to:

  • Prevent pregnancy -  99% effective when taken as directed
  • Treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
    • YAZ is not approved to treat Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), a less serious set of symptoms occurring before your period
  • Treat moderate acne in women at least 14 years of age

Who should not take YAZ?

Women should not use YAZ if they smoke and are over age 35. Smoking increases the risk of serious side effects from the Pill, which can be life-threatening, including blood clots, stroke or heart attack. This risk increases with age and number of cigarettes smoked.

Women should not use YAZ if they have kidney, liver, or adrenal disease because this could cause serious heart and health problems, or if they have or have had blood clots, certain cancers, history of heart attack or stroke, or if they are or may be pregnant.

What are the most serious risks of taking YAZ?

YAZ increases the risk of serious conditions including blood clots, stroke, and heart attack. The risk of blood clots is highest during the first year of use.  This risk is greatest when first starting the Pill and when restarting the same or a different Pill after a 4 week or greater break.

In addition, YAZ contains drospirenone, a different kind of hormone that for some may increase potassium too much. Women should consult their healthcare provider if they are on daily long-term treatment for a chronic condition with medications that may also increase potassium (see below), as they should have a blood test to check their potassium level during the first month of
