While the medications, Yaz® and Yasmin®, are effective in preventing a woman from becoming pregnant, taking the drugs can also present users with several serious side effects. A Drug Injury Lawsuit that was recently filed on behalf of several women who were harmed by the drugs, including a woman from Ohio, highlighted these risks.
A report from Injury Lawyer News explains the suit is being heard in Los Angeles County Supreme Court and stems from cardiopulmonary conditions, such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, the women developed as a result of taking the drugs.
Court documents show the women began using the birth control methods between 2004 and 2008. This was before warnings about the drugs’ potential to cause the development of blood clots were printed on the medication’s packaging. The lawsuit alleges this lack of warning cause the women to ingest a medication they may not taken otherwise.
The lawsuit also highlights a study in the British Medical Journal that concluded the birth control pills could result in a patient developing life threatening blood clots.
The women are seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
The Ohio Personal Injury Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy recognize just how dangerous the medications Yaz® and Yasmin®, along with their generic versions, can be. That is why the firm is here to help if you have been caused harm by a medication prescribed to you by a doctor.
