A new Yaz lawsuit has been filed by a California woman who is claiming that Yaz led to her developing kidney stones. This is the first of this type of lawsuit for the birth control product. Most of current cases are related to blood clot issues and some to Gallbladder problems. Like the claims currently on file, any claims linking Yaz with kidney stones will have to be supported by scientific and medical evidence.
What is unknown is whether the woman from California will be adding her case to the existing Yaz Multi District claim in Illinois.
It’s possible that other cases could crop up, too. A medication that can cause blood clots could lead to other types of medical issues. Some happen quickly, as in the case of pulmonary embolisms, strokes or DVT’s, but other problems can take much longer to develop.
Current possible side effects include:
- Blood clots in the legs
- Heart attack
- Gall bladder disease
- Blood clots in the lungs
Yasmin and Yaz are both birth control pills manufactured by Bayer that contain drospirenone, an ingredient thought to increase the risk of blood clots. In less than 10 years, they have risen to one of the top options for birth control and are the third best selling drug for Bayer.
Bayer continues to sell the product while also paying out on the lawsuits that have been filed as well as reserving funds for future lawsuits.
