Across Florida, women taking the oral contraceptive Yaz have experienced significant and sometimes fatal side effects. Funds have been established to compensate those who have suffered from clotting events caused by the progestin used in Yaz called drospirenone.
Other drugs containing drospirenone include Yasmin, Yasminella, Beyaz and Ocella. The drug was also approved by the USDA for hormone replacement therapy, and for treating moderate acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder.
Life-Threatening Yasmin Side Effects
The clotting events caused by drospirenone include gallbladder disease, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, heart attack, stroke and other cerebrovascular accidents.
It is tragic that a pill declared safe for preventing pregnancy has cost many young women their health and even their lives. Victims have included high school and college students, mothers and homemakers, office workers, airline employees, restaurant and hospitality employees.
