4,000 Lawsuits Filed Against Bayer

Currently, about 4,000 lawsuits have been filed against drug producer Bayer for medical complications caused by the birth control pill Yasmin or Yaz.  Complications have included pulmonary embolism.

Other side effects named in the lawsuits include heart attack, strokes, gall bladder issues and deep vein thrombosis.

According to Lowenthal & Abrams:

“The lawsuits claim that consumers who take these birth control pills are at a greater risk of suffering from these complications due to the drosperinone in Yasmin.  In addition, documents state that the pills offer no added benefits to other birth control pills that have less of a chance of causing side effects.”
