Since its initial development, prescription birth control has been a controversial topic. Accompanied by a long list of potentially fatal side effects, many medical professionals and members of the public alike have wondered if the risks far outweigh the benefits. To ensure the least amount of danger possible, pharmaceutical companies have attempted to limit the side effects of the drugs while simultaneously providing an effective product. Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Yaz and Yasmin, has been implicated as a company that has not taken the proper precautions and the Eichholz Law Firm has resolved to help its victims in the Savannah, Georgia community.
Sparked by initial reports concerning the dangers of Yaz and Yasmin, two highly popular birth control medications, the Eichholz Law Firm has posted information about these pharmaceuticals on its website and is encouraging all individuals that have been injured, or whose loved ones have been killed, by these drugs to contact them.
Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella (distributed by Barr Laboratories) combine estrogen ethinyl estradiol and progestin drospirenone in a way that increases the risk of blood clots. In fact, the British Medical Journal has reported that women taking birth control pills that contain these two ingredients are 600 times more likely to develop a blood clot than those that do not take birth control pills at all. These clots can result in a pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis, both of which are highly dangerous and potentially fatal.
The legal professionals at the Eichholz Law Firm are urging anyone who has been harmed by these medications to call 1-800-665-2131 for a free consultation.
