Our Involvement in the Yaz®/Yasmin® Litigation
The birth control pills Yaz® and Yasmin® contain a new kind of progestin hormone known as drsp or drospirenone. But this hormone has been shown to increase the user’s potassium levels, which can lead to adverse health problems such as:
- Blood clots
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
- Stroke and heart attack
- Gallbladder disease and removal
- Kidney and renal failure
The defective drug attorneys at Schlichter, Bogard & Denton empathize with patients who are suffering the adverse health effects of Yaz® and Yasmin®. With experience and perseverance, our lawyers will win you the money you deserve for your suffering.
A Growing Concern
More than 30 lawsuits have been recently filed in states throughout the U.S. against Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corporation and other Bayer-related companies. The allegations include the accusation that Bayer did not provide sufficient warnings against the dangerous side effects of Yasmin®/Yaz®, potentially increasing the risk of serious health complications for users.
Schlichter, Bogard & Denton are investigating these cases, and are working to get injured women the compensation they deserve for their injuries. Our attorneys are also investigating cases involving the generic drug Ocella that is manufactured by Barr Laboratories.
