Yaz Yasmin Ocella Background

Yaz®, Yasmin®, and Ocella are popular birth control pills. Additionally, women have also been prescribed these drugs for the treatment of emotional and physical symptoms of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) and moderate acne. Yaz and Yasmin are made by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Ocella is the generic version of Yaz. All three of these drugs were approved by the FDA. Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella use the unique hormone DRSP (drospirenone) which may increase potassium levels in the body leading to severe complications.

Yasmin and Yaz Cause Serious Medical Conditions

Yaz contains a synthetic type of progestin called drospirenone. This ingredient, not used in any other birth control pill approved in the United States, has been linked to hyperkalemia, a condition caused by excessive amounts of potassium in the blood, which may lead to serious heart problems, as well as other medical conditions.

Yasmin and Yaz are low estrogen oral contraceptives. Yasmin was approved in the U.S. in 2001, while Yaz, which contains even less estrogen, was approved in 2006. Together, the pills generated approximately $1.8 billion for Bayer HealthCare last year alone.

Yaz Yasmin Ocella Side Effects

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a third warning to Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. regarding what it termed as "misleading" advertising. This most recent warning was issued following reports linking the manufacturer's popular oral contraceptives with life-threatening injuries, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, kidney failure and even death.

FDA warning letters indicated that Yaz ads made exaggerated claims about the drug's benefits and failed to mention important side effects. As a result of increased FDA pressure, Bayer has agreed to spend $20 million on a corrective advertising campaign, but maintains that the pills do not pose any additional health risks than other oral contraceptives.

The most common conditions that may be associated with the use of Yasmin, Yaz, and Ocella include:

  • Stroke
  • Kidney failure
  • Heart Attack
  • Blood Clots
  • Liver tumor
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Liver disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pancreas - increased potassium levels
