Parilman & Associates – Yaz Side Effects Lawyers Fighting for Suffering Women
Millions of women need the help of birth control medication in order to properly manage and organize their lives. For decades, different strategies and medications have been prominently used to help with this effort. In recent years, two of the most popular choices for birth control management have been medications known as Yaz and Yasmin. For a time after these drugs hit the market, they were positively reviewed by most who used them.
However, reports of serious Yaz side effects and Yasmin side effects eventually began to surface, and the problems associated with these medications were not only dangerous, but in some cases they were deadly. If you or someone you love has been harmed as a result of using either of these medications, you need to seek the help of Yasmin side effects lawyers as soon as possible.
Yaz and Yasmin – A Brief Description
Yaz and Yasmin are both manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, one of the largest drug companies in the world. Yasmin was originally approved for use in the United States by the FDA in 2001, and Yaz followed its predecessor in 2006 with a slightly different formula. Both of these medications work by restricting ovulation and the ability of an egg to be fertilized and even further by preventing a randomly fertilized egg from taking hold in the uterus. They are available via prescription.
Yaz and Yasmin Side Effects
Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before reports of serious Yasmin and Yaz side effects began to surface. These side effects included several serious problems, including:
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) – DVT is an otherwise rare condition where a blood clot forms deep inside the tissue of the body, usually in the leg. Eventually, this clot will break off and travel through the body before settling in the lungs.
- Pulmonary Embolisms – Pulmonary embolisms are extremely dangerous blood clots that appear in the lungs. Some of these blood clots form directly in or near the lungs and others are transplanted there after forming somewhere else in the body.
- Kidney damage – Yasmin and Yaz have both been linked to severe kidney damage as well, and theories regarding how this could have happened generally center on the amount and types of hormones that are released into the body as a result of using these medications.
Yasmin and Yaz Side Effects Lawyers
In recent years, there have been many different Yaz side effects lawsuits filed against the manufacturer, and tragically some of these Yasmin lawsuits have been wrongful death claims where otherwise healthy and young women have passed away due to alleged complications from using one of these drugs.
