YAZ Lawsuit

Well, you might consider a YAZ Lawsuit if you are experiencing major symptoms after taking it. Yaz (ethinyl estradiol & droperinone) is a birth control pill that is to be taken once a month by its users. Initially FDA approved in March 2006 for the prevention of unwanted pregnancies, this approval was later expanded to include the treatment of physical and emotional symptoms of PMDD – premenstrual dysphoric disorder. This is an acute case of PMS that hampers regular activity. Then, in 2007, it was approved for moderate acne treatment for those that already use birth control.

Known widely as a combo oral contraceptive, YAZ is made of ethinyl estradiol, which is estrogen that affects egg release, and drospirenone. The latter is progestin that restricts the uterus lining. This chemical is only present in Yasmin, Yaz, and generic-grade Ocella. This makes these new-age birth control pills several times more dangerous for consumption than any other kind of oral contraceptive, which has lead to an increasing number of Yaz lawsuit cases.

Dangers of Using This Medicine

Drospirenone is known to stimulate increase in blood potassium levels causing hyperkalemia. This can lead to heart problems and many other side effects. Those with pre-existing liver, kidney, or adrenal diseases are especially susceptible to the side effects. In many cases, YAZ has resulted in death of the user.

YAZ Lawsuit

Very often, when a patient suffers from a severe illness or medical shock like stroke or heart attack, he or she is unaware that prescription drugs like YAZ or Yasmin may be responsible for their injuries.  Sometimes, even the physicians treating the patient may be oblivious to the connection. However, lawyers at http://yazlawsuitx.com will help you track down whether or not Yasmin has contributed to your adverse health status.

Why You Should File

Bayer had a clear duty to clearly warn the public of Yasmin’s side effects. Instead, they did the opposite and advertised aggressively about the ‘superiority’ of Yaz to other products for more than a decade. Thousands of innocent women have suffered and continue to suffer from the great amount of pain and suffering, and even death, that Yaz has caused.

Human life is precious and invaluable. No amount of settlement can compensate for the immense pain and suffering that YAZ has caused to its victims. If anyone is to blame for this, it is the greedy souls at Bayer HealthCare. However, financial settlements can help broken families move on in life, fund future education, make up for lost incomes, and pay for hospital bills. It is your right to be compensated in some manner, as little as that is, from Bayer. Lash out against unethical marketing strategies like Bayer’s and help enforce strict FDA regulations against them by filing a YAZ lawsuit.

Monetary Settlement from a YAZ Lawsuit

It is believed that settlements from a YAZ lawsuit are on the close horizon. Scrutiny and pressure over side effects of Yaz are constantly mounting US state courts. Over 7,000 lawsuits have been filed against Yaz. More and more join this cohort regularly. No shortage exists of victims that have born side effects that could be eligible for thousands in settlements. However, till date, it appears that Bayer Corporation, manufacturer of Yaz and Yasmin, hasn’t reached a single lawsuit with plaintiffs in the US or anywhere else in the world.

Your compensation can help make a difference for you and all those other desperate and suffering women out there. Pressure on this pharmaceutical giant is already showing its results. A trial has been scheduled against Yaz for federal litigation. FDA is charging it for its oral contraceptive being linked to a much higher than expected rate of pulmonary embolism and blood clots.

FDA Involvement

The first party to recognize the farces that lay behind the marketing strategies being used with Yaz was the Food and Drugs Administration. Although YAZ is still a Bertex product, the FDA complained that sufficient information was not being given to the public about side effects of Yasmin. Bertex was also making false claims that the product was superior to other competing products. 5 years later, the superiority of Yaz was being pushed by Bayer even harder than before. That’s when the FDA set its foot down and warned them that the claims being made were misleading the public.

They then proceeded to inform Bayer that selling Yaz for purposes other than birth control was unacceptable. FDA had only given approval for use of Yaz as birth control and mild acne or PMDD treatment. However, Bayer was advertising it as a cure for premenstrual dysphoric disorder, premenstrual syndrome, and acne.

Till date, Bayer has been forced to pay over twenty million dollars for ad campaigns directed towards correcting their earlier statements about the side effects and uses of Yaz. Thousands of normal women have suffered the treacherous side effects of Yaz because of their deceitful advertising campaigns.
