Find out if you have a Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella® side effects claim
In 2008, the birth control pills Yaz®, Yasmin®, and Ocella® were marketed as not only a birth control pill, but also as a means to eliminate PMS (premenstrual syndrome) and clear up acne. The manufacturer of Yaz® and Yasmin®, Bayer Healthcare, ran the advertisements on television and other forms of media until October of 2008 when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) insisted the ads be revised to reflect only FDA-approved uses of the drug. Because of these off-label marketing advertisements many women and girls have used the drugs for purposes other than what they were approved for.
Since Yaz®/Yasmin®/Ocella® has been available, it has been linked to a number of serious side effects including blood clots in the lungs, legs, and other areas, as well as strokes, heart attacks, gall bladder problems and even death. Though Bayer Healthcare revised their advertisements to adhere to the FDA’s requirements, the warnings offered are inadequate compared to the serious nature of the potential side effects someone taking Yaz®/Yasmin®/Ocella® could experience. Several Yaz®/Yasmin® lawsuits against Bayer Healthcare have already been filed as more victims have been able to make the link between their condition and the drug.
