Washington, DC (Vocus) June 22, 2010
The US Drug Watchdog has initiated a critical national initiative aimed at informing all women who take the very popular birth control pills called Yaz, or Yasmin about the potential for very serious side affects, that include strokes, heart attacks, death, blood clotting, or other serious medical issues. The group is saying, "we want to hear from any woman who has suffered any type of medical side effect, in order to see how wide spread these possible medical issues are, & to try to get some help for the victims. We are also asking all women to put this press release on their Face Book, or My Space web sites in order to get the word out, about what could be a very big problem with these birth control pills. For more information, please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime 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." If a Yas, or Yasmin birth control user has any medical problems, or issues after using these drugs they should contact the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
What is the difference between Yaz & Yasmin?
According to the US Drug Watchdog, "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."
