YAZ lawyers are attorneys who compile and litigate personal injury claims alleging that women have developed serious, potentially fatal, side effects as a result of taking Yasmin, YAZ, or Ocella.
Yasmin, YAZ, and Ocella are oral contraceptives that have also been FDA approved for the treatment of moderate acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). PMDD is a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) marked by anxiety, depression, anger and/or mood disorders. Yasmin and YAZ are produced by Bayer, and Ocella, a generic version of Yasmin, is produced by Teva Pharmaceuticals.
While most women who take Yasmin, YAZ, and Ocella experience only mild, passing, side effects (such as weight gain or breast tenderness), in rare cases, some patients will develop severe side effects that require immediate medical attention to prevent life-threatening complications.
When to Consult with a Yasmin Lawyer
Women who have a history of taking Yasmin, YAZ, or Ocella and who develop any of the following health complications should consult with an experienced Yasmin lawyer, once their health is no longer at risk:
- blood clots
- heart attack
- pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs that hinder the ability to breathe)
- severe liver bleeding and/or liver malignancies
