The US Drug Watchdog has begun a national investigation of the birth control drugs called Yaz & Yasmin given increasing evidence these drugs may be responsible for heart attacks, strokes and other serious side affects with users. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cited Bayer this year for running misleading television commercials, and last month for not following proper quality-control procedures at a plant that makes hormone ingredients. According to the US Drug Watchdog, "we want to hear from any Yaz, or Yasmin user, or loved ones, if the user had a heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, or any other serious medical issues." Yaz, or Yasmin users can call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via its web site at Http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

the only difference between the two pills is that the estradiol in Yaz is lower than in Yasmin. but it is not the estradiol that causes most problems, it is the type of progesterone called drosperinone. The amount of drosperinone is the same in both of the pills.

According to the US Drug Watchdog, "we have initiated a national investigation of the birth control drugs called Yaz, or Yasmin, over concern that use of these drugs could be associated with strokes. heart attacks, blood clots, and other very serious health side affects."The FDA released a warning letter sent in mid September to Bayer Pharmaceuticals over Yaz & Yasmin issues at the drug makers manufacturing plant in Germany. 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. According to the US Drug Watchdog, "the FDA has also blasted the drug maker for failing to highlight the risk factors associated with the drug. These include heart attacks, strokes, blood clotting and other serious medical issues." If a user of the birth control pills called Yaz, or Yasmin has had a heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, or other serious medical issues, they should contact the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at Http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

According to the US Drug Watchdog "in the same letter sent to the maker of Yaz & Yasmin about its misleading advertising, the FDA notes that the side effects of Yaz/Yasmin are more dangerous than those of other oral contraceptives because the drug contains drospirenone, a progestin that can elevate potassium levels in the blood. Yaz/Yasmin and its recently approved generic version is the only approved oral contraceptive to contain drospirenone." The group is saying, "we want all young women to share this press release with their friends in order to get the word out about these potentially very dangerous birth control pills, and we want to hear from any Yaz, or Yasmin user, who has had any type of medical issue with either of these drugs."
