Wyoming Dangerous Drugs & Medical Devices

Yaz/Yasmin – Dangerous Drugs – Wyoming

Yasmin – Drug Attorney - Wyoming Burg SimpsonYasmin and YAZ are birth control pills manufactured by pharmaceutical giant, Bayer Healthcare. The generic brand equivalent, Ocella, is marketed and distributed by Barr Laboratories Inc. Yasmin, Yaz, and Ocella contain the same estrogenic compound, ethinyl estradiol, used in the birth control medication since the early 1970s, but the progestin in Yasmin, YAZ, and Ocella is new. This “fourth generation” progestin is called drospirenone and is not used in any other drug on the market. If you have been taking this oral contraceptive and suffered serious harm, contact a mass tort attorney fast.

There is no other litigation law firm that has helped more women receive fair compensation for injuries stemming from the use of YAZ, Yasmin, and other drosperinone-containing oral contraceptives. Our shareholders have led this litigation for nearly a decade. Founding shareholder Michael S. Burg was appointed to lead the national efforts by the federal judge overseeing the YAZ litigation, while shareholder Seth A. Katz in Denver has served as Chair of the Discovery Committee. Additionally, shareholder Janet G. Abaray in Ohio has served as a Co-Chair of the Science Committee.

If you or a family member has been seriously injured due to the use of YAZ or Yasmine, call a trial attorney quickly by reaching out to our Wyoming office of Burg Simson right now at 307-527-7891 or complete our Free Case Evaluation form here.

Drospirenone has been linked to an increase in potassium levels in the blood, which can lead to a condition known as hyperkalemia. Hyperkalemia can cause heart rhythm disturbances, such as extrasystolies, pauses or bradycardia. Hyperkalemia disrupts normal heart rhythms causing the flow of the blood through the heart to slow to a point that permits blood clots to form. Blood clots in the heart can then lead to heart attacks or travel to the lungs where they can cause pulmonary embolus, or travel to the brain, causing stroke. In some cases, and if left untreated, hyperkalemia can be fatal.

Yasmin, YAZ and Ocella have been prescribed to millions of women across America, and they’re also marketed to reduce water retention and bloating often associated with premenstrual dysphoric disorder. However, too much loss of fluids can lead to dehydration, which also increases the risk of blood clots.

Since 2004, there have been several reports of death among users of Yasmin, YAZ and Ocella filed with FDA. These include deaths with reported cardiac arrhythmia, cardiac arrest, intra-cardiac thrombus (blood clots in the heart), pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs) and stroke in women in their child-bearing years. Some of the deaths occurred in women as young as 17 years old.

If you have lost a loved one because of blood clots you think could have been caused by these drugs, call Burg Simpson Wyoming at 307-527-7891 and get the legal help you deserve.
