Yaz was at one time one of the most popular birth control medications, but has since been the focus of ever-increasing lawsuits, as thousands of women who have been prescribed the drug have reported serious side effects in their legal claims against Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Women are seeking compensation from the manufacturer of both Yaz and Yasmin over these serious side effects. The drug has been prescribed to women ages 14 years and up, and in addition to contraception, Yaz had also been prescribed as an acne treatment for some women.
Despite being subject to the same clinical trials and FDA approval as all other prescription medications, it is more difficult to determine side effects for contraceptive drugs like Yaz and Yasmin because they lack placebos in tests and trials. For several years, women have reported serious, life-threatening ailments and injuries, allegedly from using Yaz. These side effects include pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder disease, heart attacks, strokes, and sudden death.
