If you or a loved one have taken Yaz birth control, Ron Bell wants you to know about the risks. Yas is a birth control pill that has been on the market since 2006. It is different from other birth control pills because it has a hormone called drospirenone, which can create high levels of potassium in the blood stream. Yaz has been linked with serious heart problems in women. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warns users of blood clots, heart attack, stroke, and gallbladder disease in Yaz users.
Studies on Yaz have shown that blood clots in Yaz users are frequent enough for Yaz to have a warning on its label, but it failed to do so. Women taking Yaz are 75% more likely to get a blood clot than women taking other forms of birth control pills. Yaz manufacturers have been warned by U.S. Health regulators about quality control issues. FDA inspectors found testing problems at the company’s main plant in Germany and have found that one of the drugs in Yaz may not be up to standards.
Yaz was also marketed for unapproved uses. Commercials claimed that Yaz could be used to cure headaches and severe acne were not approved by the FDA. If you or someone you care about took Yaz and suffered a blood clot, stroke, or heart attack, Ron Bell may be able to help you get compensation.
