Yasmin Use Dangerous For Patients

A California lawsuit has been filed claiming that the manufacturers of the birth control Yasmin should be held responsible for the serious side effects that its patients have endured and that the product is inherently dangerous for human consumption. The lawsuit, which was filed on the 10th of May, 2012, is among many that claim that serious side effects of the medication have harmed its users irreparably. The plaintiff involved is named Tonia Brumley, who is a resident of Watsonville, California, bringing ten counts against the controversial drug manufacturer. She says that she developed deep vein thrombosis as a result of her use of the medication.

Deep vein thrombosis can be life threatening

Yaz deep vein thrombosis is a serious side effect of the medication that can result from the use of birth control pills containing the synthetic hormone drospirenone. It manifests when blood clots form in the extremities of a patient. If these blood clots dislodge, they can travel to major arteries and cause even more serious complications, including pulmonary embolism and stroke.

Brumley’s case will probably be consolidated with thousands of other, similar lawsuits that have been filed by women who have been injured by Yaz or Yasmin. These lawsuits have been centralized in the Superior Court of the State of California, Los Angeles County. A number of plaintiffs are seeking damages for side effects they have experienced as a result of their use of the medication, and a multidistrict litigation case is currently taking place in Illinois to deal with federal cases that have been filed against the manufacturer.

Risks associated with Yaz scare off patients

Patients who have experienced Yaz side effects are coming forward in huge numbers, and as more and more cases arise fewer patients are choosing to use the once popular birth control pill. Side effects of Yasmin and Yaz can include pancreatitis, heart attack, and gallbladder disease. Brumley is seeking compensation for her injuries from the drug maker.
