If you’ve been prescribed or have taken the birth control drug Yasmin, you need to know that you may be at risk for deadly blood clots. Yasmin, also known as “Yaz” or “Yas”, was initially developed by drug maker Bayer, and in 2008, the Food and Drug Administration cited the company for failing to properly disclose all of the associated risks of taking Yasmin.
The Dangers of Taking Yasmin
Unfortunately, many women had already been prescribed the drug by that time, meaning many women were and are at risk of developing blood clots that may lead to heart attack, stroke and a number of other serious health concerns. This risk is increased in women over 35 and in women who smoke, but the FDA has stated that all women who take Yasmin are at a higher risk of developing blood clots when compared to women who do not take Yasmin.
You’re Encouraged to Seek Legal Representation
Due to these facts coming out, women who have taken Yasmin may be due compensation. If you or someone you know have taken Yasmin in the past, or if you are currently taking Yasmin, it’s of vital importance that you speak with Yasmin medication lawyer Eric J. Hertz, P.C. at once to be informed of your rights. Eric J. Hertz and the legal team at the Hertz Law Firm are also currently urging all women who have taken Yasmin to speak with their primary care physicians as soon as possible to be evaluated for potential side effects of the drug.
