Yasmin, Yaz and Ocella linked to serious circulatory and gallbladder disease.
The birth control pill Yasmin, also sold as Yaz or Ocella, has been linked to serious circulatory and gallbladder disease. Since 2004, at least 50 deaths have been reported in women taking Yasmin and similar contraceptives. Some of these women were as young as 17. A key ingredient in these drugs can raise blood potassium levels and cause:
- Heart attack
- Gallbladder disease
- Kidney disease
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Venous Thromboembolism
- Liver tumors
Women with high blood potassium, kidney or liver impairment, or adrenal gland problems should not take Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella. Women who are obese, diabetic, or have chronic high blood pressure should also avoid these contraceptives.
Yaz advertisements draw repeated FDA warnings
Bayer, the manufacturer of Yaz, received FDA warnings in 2003 and 2008 for both overstating the benefits and minimizing the serious safety risks of Yaz. Federal laws prohibit drug companies from promoting unapproved uses of a drug. In 2009, Bayer was required to run a $20 million advertising campaign to correct previous misleading Yaz advertisements.
