Class Action Lawyer  Network Announces a Yaz Yasmin help Center  in their Women's Health Lawyers Division.

There are many Dangerous Drugs and medical Devices Hitting our Airwaves. Class Action Lawyer Network has added another Helpline. The Yaz Yasmine Helpline and support group for women information about the risks of Yaz.- Sep 28, 2011 – Over the years drug companies quickly develop drugs that profit over people. The modern woman is very active and on the go. The drug industry has developed expensive types of birth control and many other drugs and medical devices that effect women. According to Lisa Spitzer MSW, who runs the Women's Health Lawyer Helplines,

" These companies have marketed to these progressive woman many drugs and birth control methods and surgical implants.professing to improve quality of life" "Unfortunately for women, the pharmaceutical companies did not adequately test these drugs or medical devices "" Yaz, is the latest in a series of drugs that are being investigated for harmful side effects including heart attacks, blood clots, strokes, gallbladder disease, and many other complications. Because of this Injury lawyer network has added a Yaz helpline and support group for women. According to Spitzer" so many of these drugs and surgical implants are directed toward women". " We have also launched a women's Health lawyer legal department to address these issues"

In 2001 Yaz was created by Bertex Laboratories where it was called Yasmin. In 2006, Bayer Healthcare took over the Bertex Company and reintroduced Yasmin as Yaz. Over the last three years, Yaz has turned into not only the most popular birth control method in the U.S. but ,the most profitable as well. Bayer has done a huge marketing campaign promoting yaz. Bayer sends its sales representatives to the doctors offering free dinners and trips . In return, they ask the doctors ’to prescribe Yaz.

The Food and Drug Administration has been investigating Yaz over the past few years and were the first to recognize that there was a problem in the marketing of this drug. The FDA warned that Bertex was not giving the public adequate information about Yasmin’s side effects and that Bertex was making unproven claims that their product was superior to competitive products. Five years after this, when Bayer began to aggressively market Yaz as a miracle drug to cure all sorts of problems, the FDA warned them that their claims were misleading to the public. They let Bayer know that it was unacceptable for them to sell Yaz for any purpose other than birth control.

Although, Bayer has been forced to change its marketing methods, many women have suffered from its harmful side effects or developed serious health conditions.

It is alleged that Yaz causes side effects as dangerous as heart attack, strokes, blood clots, pulmonary embolisms, and gallbladder disease. There has also been discussion that Yaz that can eventually lead to serious health issues over time. The Yaz helpline assist women experiencing any of these side effects. According to Spitzer" woman are directed to see a doctor and get treatment. ""We suggest they look into being taken off yaz".

The Class Action Lawyer helpline also connect women to a lawyer for a consultation"

You would have thought that all of this negative publicity would have detered Bayer from making Yaz or from aggressively marketing the product but, the answer is no. Yaz is still one of the most popular birth control methods in the U.S. Bayer is being irresponsible to patients by continuing to produce and sell Yaz. Injury lawyers Network is concerned about the potential strokes young women may have to endure before Bayer will pull the plug on this dangerous drug. The helpline offers support, and information.

"My suggestion is that if you or a loved one has been injured by Yaz, Yasmin,Ocella or the Transvaginal mesh,prolapse mesh that you seek the advice of a competent lawyer to understand your rights. Having a stroke just because you do not want to get pregnant is not right. Contact our helpline for support, advise and to connect with a lawyer," says Spitzer.

According to Spitzer " I am interested in the psychological and emotional effects of these drugs and medical devices on women. When a car has a recall or gets a bad oil change that is one thing.""Drug and medical device companies are playing with peoples lives"

Medical technology in today's society is often seen as a way to improve quality of life. The term medical technology refers to the diagnostic or therapeutic application of science to improve the individual. Unfortunately, the negative impacts of this technology are often left unexposed to the public until too late."When a drug turns bad or a medical device literally falls apart in a woman's body" "We have technology gone astray or greed and selfishness pervading" Says Spitzer. " The women I talk to no longer trust their doctors", "This is a sad situation" "These woman are emotional wrecks" " the entire families are effected" For more information call the helpline at 1 877 522 2123

 

YAZ UPDATE

U.S. health regulators are leaning toward adding new information about the risk of blood clots to the labels of widely prescribed birth control pills such as Yaz, in light of growing evidence that the newer contraceptive drugs may be riskier than older drugs.

In documents released Tuesday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said there is conflicting evidence about the risk, but that the information should appear in labeling used by doctors and patients. Sorting out the blood clot risk of birth control drugs is especially difficult because all hormone-based contraceptives increase the risk of clotting, researchers say.Sorting out the blood clot risk of birth control drugs is especially difficult because all hormone-based contraceptives increase the risk of clotting, researchers say. iStock

"We believe that, because of the consistency in recent reports for an increased risk, product labeling should reflect that very real possibility," state the briefing documents from FDA scientists.

On Thursday, the FDA will ask a panel of outside experts to weigh in on the issue and to consider whether some women should not take the drugs. The agency is not required to follow the panel's advice, though it often does
