Newport Beach, California (PRWEB) July 16, 2012
According to a study released on February 1, 2012 by the University of British Columbia, the use of Drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives (OC) greatly increases the likelihood of developing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Yaz, once the most popular form of oral contraceptive on the market, utilizes Drospirenone.
The British Columbia study consisted of 939,281 women averaging about 29 years of age and 247 days of OC treatment. The annualized incidence for IBS with Drospirenone (1083 victims) was 224% higher than with Levonorgestrel (483 victims).
Studies linking Yaz and Yasmin to serious and life-threatening health complications are not new.
In June of 2012, the New England Journal of Medicine released a study that linked utilizing Ethinyl Estradiol (ingredient in Yaz and Yasmin) to an increased risk of thrombotic stroke and myocardial infarction. The study found the risk of these medical conditions to increase by a factor of 0.9 to 1.7 when taking oral contraceptives that included Ethinyl Estradiol at a dose of 20 μg.
Travis Siegel, Bisnar | Chase Yaz attorney, is currently representing several Yaz side effect victims.
“Pharmaceutical manufacturers have a responsibility to provide their patients with products that are reasonably safe. Bayer Healthcare produced a product that a number of studies have found to contribute to life-threatening side effects. Patients who are able to provide medical records that are consistent with highly regarded medical studies may be able to receive compensation for their medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering that is attributed to their use of Yaz or Yasmin.”
“Our goal is to give manufacturers additional reasons to provide the public with safe products. Victims of defective medications do not want to believe that their safety may have been less important than someone’s profit margin, but there are documented product liability cases in which this fact cannot be disputed.” says Mr. Siegel.
