The US Drug Watchdog Now Warns Time May Be Running Out For Young Women Who Had A Heart Attack Or Stroke After Using Yaz Yasmin Birth Control Pills

April 19, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is now warning that with a very poorly publicized possible settlement for women, who used the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or the generic version called Ocella, and then suffered a heart attack, a stroke, or a pulmonary embolism, time might be running out to get a settlement. As a background according to the September 17th 2009 edition of the New York Times, “The FDA released a warning letter sent in September to Bayer Pharmaceuticals over Yaz & Yasmin, that was very critical of the drug maker for failing to highlight the risk factors associated with these birth control pills.” The US Drug Watchdog says, “If a user of the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or the generic version Ocella has had a pulmonary embolism, a heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, or other serious medical issues, they should contact our group immediately at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com

According to the US Drug Watchdog, “We have a really big problem-hardly anyone has heard about possible severe side effects associated with the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or generic version Ocella birth control pills. We even have a bigger problem–a very poorly publicized settlement might be near for users, who suffered a heart attack, a stroke, or a pulmonary embolism, and we need to do everything possible to get the word out to all young women, mothers of young women, friends of young women, who were using these specific birth control pills, and then had an out of the blue heart attack, or stroke. As a background, in September of 2009, the US FDA released a warning letter sent to Bayer Pharmaceuticals over Yaz & Yasmin. The letter indicates that the drug maker hid out-of-specification test results for key ingredients in the birth control pills, and said that several batches of the drugs should have never been released to the public. The US Drug Watchdog says, “If you, or a friend are using birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or their generic version Ocella, and severe side effects have occurred, such a pulmonary embolism, a heart attack, a stroke, or other severe medical conditions please contact us immediately at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog is saying,”We want to talk with users of the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or the generic version Ocella, if they have had any type of severe medical side effects, or, who have suddenly developed an unexplained severe medical condition. We want to get the word out to all young women about these drugs, because of the potential for heart attacks, strokes, and or other serious medical issues, and time really is of the essence.” For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com
