claiming serious injuries, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism, from taking Yasmin and Yaz
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Jennifer Benefield, Melissa Wray, Cheryl Campos, Cheryl Hill and Rosemary Hampton. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on September 14th, 2012, five plaintiffs, Jennifer Benefield, Melissa Wray, Cheryl Campos, Cheryl Hill and Rosemary Hampton, filed a Yasmin Lawsuit in Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2012cv11374) claiming serious injuries, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism, from taking Yasmin and Yaz. Yasmin, which was approved by the FDA in 2001, and its sister drug Yaz, which was approved in 2006, are oral contraceptives that combine estrogen and a fourth generation progestin, drospirenone, to prevent pregnancy. Yaz and Yasmin are manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals.
The five plaintiffs were prescribed and took Yasmin and Yaz. Benefiled and Campos were diagnosed with pulmonary embolism, in 2007 and 2005 respectively. Wray suffered from with deep vein thrombosis in 2010 and Hill had her gallbladder removed in 2009.

On April 10th, 2012, FDA updated the drug labels for drospirenone-containing birth control pills, including Yasmin and Yaz. The new labels report that some epidemiologic studies reported as high as a three-fold increase in the risk of blood clots for drospirenone-containing products when compared to products containing levonorgestrel or some other progestins.
