“Here is my story… I was on Yasmin for 6 years. About 4 years into taking the drug, I noticed a mass on my right side… I went to KU Med and was told that I had to have emergency surgery right away, and that I was basically a walking time bomb…. If I tripped and fell, it could cause this mass to rupture and I could bleed to death…They did a liver resection and removed my gall bladder and several lymph nodes. The mass on the scan turned out to be 2 grapefruit-sized benign masses, called Focal Nodular Hyperplasia – most commonly caused from the hormones in birth control pills!!!!…This whole ordeal has DRASTICALLY changed my life and affected all of the people I love, my husband included, who has to endure all of my pain and anxiety.

INDIANAPOLIS – By Sandra Chapman

It was one the best selling birth control pills on the market. But now, a warning for women.

Fifty patients have reportedly died from taking the contraceptive and thousands of others say it causes potentially life-threatening side effects, prompting a trusted drug maker to spend millions to highlight the risks.

Linda Rosenberg was the picture of a healthy baby. She recalls growing up on Bayer Baby Aspirin and planned to care for her own baby in the same way, someday.

In 2007, motherhood was still in the future when her doctor told her about Yaz, a new oral contraceptive manufactured by Bayer. It was sweeping the country with a flashy ad campaign.

"There was no reason to believe the product was, you know, that there was any danger in taking it," explained Rosenberg.

But two years after taking daily doses of Yaz, Linda began experiencing unexplainable swelling. At her doctor's urging, she got an ultrasound. It probably saved her life. A blood clot was discovered in her ankle.

"Yes and right behind my knee, which was causing the swelling in the ankle," she told 13 Investigates.

Linda went through 18 months of treatment. But along the way, she lost more than she could have imagined.

"Now, I can't have children," she revealed.

The treatment for the blood clot left her unable to conceive children and her trust in a childhood name was gone. Rosenberg is now among hundreds of women nationwide blaming Bayer's Yaz birth control for devastating health effects.

"Had that blood clot traveled, you know, to her heart, her chest, she could have faced a pulmonary embolism, she could have had a heart attack. Had it gone to her brain, she could have suffered from a stroke. So she was very lucky," said Takeen Thompson, Linda's Indianapolis attorney.

"I'd like to see it off the shelves, if it's not safe," Linda insists.

"It doesn't happen just with Yaz," according Dr. Sara Sayger.

Sayger has prescribed Yaz as the medical director at the Purdue Health Center and Women's Clinic in West Lafayette. In fact, Sayger concludes all oral contraceptives come with some risk.

"Blood clotting is an uncommon side effect. A real danger, but an uncommon side effect," she said.

But according to lawsuits nationwide, Yaz is being blamed for the deaths of at least 50 women, including young college students.

Thompson told 13 Investigates her research reveals "most of the clients with the gall bladder disease were in their early 20s or so. (They) felt symptoms of having a heart attack and went into the doctor or hospital and learned that their gall bladders were not functioning properly and had to have them removed through emergency surgery."

Thompson is now representing Linda and other women suing the drug maker. At issue is Bayer's use of a new ingredient.

"We're talking about a progestin that had not been used in birth control pills," Thompson explained.

Dr. Sayger confirms the new ingredient.

"We've seen a couple of new synthetic progesterones that have come onto the market. Yaz is one of those new synthetic progesterones," she said.

Sayger describes Yaz as a "niche" contraceptive and evaluates closely whether it's a good fit for each patient.

"It's a pill that's been very positively received by women who have been on other products and still had very extreme emotional, premenstrual mood swings. Yaz seemed to be a good answer for those people" she found in her practice.

But Sayger agrees it's not for everyone.

In 2008, the FDA sent Bayer a warning letter regarding its advertising for Yaz. The FDA took issue with claims by Yaz to treat PMS and acne of all severities, even though Yaz had not been evaluated to do such.

The FDA also said "Yaz has additional risks because it contains the progestin, Drospirenone…which may result in potentially serious heart and health problems" in high risk patients.

The FDA said Bayer knew about the risks, the information came from the company's own studies. Yet it's warning labels failed to adequately disclose the potential danger.

"It does appear that they concealed that information," Thompson said.

Bayer declined an on-camera interview with 13 Investigates about Yaz, but in a released statement said "..the benefits…outweigh the potential risks" and that "labels…do not adequately reflect the risk…and should be revised to include additional information from available studies."

Bayer is now airing corrective ads.

Sayger points out that the FDA shares responsibility to ensure products for women are safe and wants to see more studies.

"Birth control pills have been on the market for 50-plus years. We now have three or four generations of pill users, so we have lots of experience with birth control pills," Sayger said.

But it's too late for Linda Rosenberg.

"Had I known that it could have been an issue, or a problem, I certainly would have not chosen to go that route," she said, hoping to warn other women.

The FDA did not take Yaz off the market.

Sayger says fewer college students are using that contraceptive, but for other reasons. She says Yaz costs around $70 a month, compared to other brands that range from $9 to $20.

Bayer is facing 4,000 lawsuits surrounding its Yaz and Yasmin birth control. Indiana lawyers filing lawsuits for Yaz. Call the yaz Birth Control Pills helpline.

Virginia Yaz Birth Control Helpline News

 

Richmond, VA: Although Bayer is currently settling thousands of Yasmin lawsuits, Yaz and Yasmin attorneys say it isn't too late to file a Yasmin claim. As of April 26, the drug company says it has settled 651 cases and thousands more are pending.

Yasmin Lawsuit Settlement UpdateYasmin lawyers advise claimants to contact their attorney if they haven't yet been notified about a possible settlement with their case. Law firms with the largest amount of cases are being contacted first.

In its Stockholders' Newsletter for the first quarter, Bayer said it has paid $142 million in the settlements, averaging about $218,000 a case. On April 13, the drug manufacturer agreed to pay about $110 million to settle the first 500 Yasmin lawsuits in the US, according to Bloomberg News. Pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) cases are being settled and at this point, the company is not considering settlement of any gallbladder cases. By April 18, the company said it faced 11,900 Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits involving approximately 14,000 plaintiffs.

However, Bayer is not admitting any wrongdoing in any of the settlements, even though in early April the FDA ordered Bayer and other contraceptive makers to include stronger blood-clot warnings on their products. Researchers say that birth control pills containing drospirenone may triple the risk for blood clots.

Richard Vosser, a JPMorgan Chase & Co. analyst, predicts that Bayer may have to pay more than $2.65 billion to resolve all the venous clot injury cases over its birth control pills, which may include all contraceptives containing the synthetic hormone drospirenone.

Yasmin and Yaz litigation, including about 50 wrongful death lawsuits filed between 2004 and 2008, has plagued Bayer since 2009. The suits claim that Bayer did not properly inform women of the risks involved, and it marketed Yasmin and Yaz for off-label uses, to treat acne, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and heavy menstrual bleeding.

Despite these huge payouts, Bayer reported that sales and profits in the first quarter were higher than analysts' estimates. And it would appear that Bayer does have deep pockets. Sales of its contraceptives amounted to $1.58 billion in 2010 alone.

Blood Clots in the Lung (Pulmonary Embolism – PE) at 28 Years Old: Bonnie's Story

Recently, I was diagnosed with blood clot on my lungs. I'm 28 and 140 pounds. I'm an otherwise healthy person. I exercise. I eat well. I only drank and smoked occasionally, once a month out at the bar with friends. I am not the typical victim, but it still happened to me.

Here's what happened in hindsight. I figured this out after talking with my doctor and nurses. I started taking the birth control pill YAZ three months before the clot. I felt fine while on it. I had lighter periods, clearer skin, fewer cramps, and fewer pms symptoms.

A few months after starting YAZ, I had a pain in the back of my right calf. It felt like a bruise, but I had no visible mark on my leg. It was not that painful; just annoying. I decided it was from working out, and I put some muscle rub ointment on my leg.

The pain went away after a few days, but then the next week I had a pain in my foot in the outside middle of my foot. It felt like a stone bruise. It was similar to the pain of a bruise you get from stepping on a rock. This did hurt a bit more and I had a bit of a limp. But I do go on walks and walk around at work, and walk on a treadmill. I thought I had injured it and not noticed at the time.

The pain went away. I then started to get a pain in my chest and back just under my left breast and through to my back. This felt like a pulled muscle. It hurt when I took a deep breath or twisted my torso. I had this pain for three days. It didn't hurt enough for me to want to see a doctor. It felt like I had done too many sit-ups.

On the third day I was on my way to visit my boyfriend who lived three hours away. On the way there my chest and back started to hurt terribly. I could hardly breath. Every breath gave me a stabbing pain in my chest. I hurt so bad and got so worried I stopped in a small town and went to the ER.

At the ER I was diagnosed with a pulled intercostal muscle, I got a chest xray, which looked a bit odd, but the radiologist thought that it looked like fluid in my lungs because I was unable to take a deep breath for several hours. I was sent home with prescription pain killers.

My boyfriend picked me up. We spent the weekend fishing and going out to dinner with friends. I was still having intermittent pain. I took the vicodin prescribed and and iced my chest and back. I thought I would be fine in a few days.

I returned home on Monday. I had an overwhelming urge to make an appointment right away with my doctor. I felt uneasy about the weird chest x-ray, and I just had a feeling I needed to see my doctor. I had a strange sense of impending doom. I stayed home from work.

I had an appointment on Tuesday afternoon. I talked with my doctor. Because I was having chest pain and I was on the birth control he wanted a CT scan of my chest. I thought he was being overly cautious but I had the scan.

I sat in the waiting room for the results. My doctor called after half an hour and told me I had a blood clot in my lung and that I needed to be admitted and started on IV blood thinners* right away.

I spent the next five days in the hospital getting the IV blood thinner* heperin. I also was taking a oral drug warfarin I was released on Sunday. I'll be on the warfarin for at least 6 months. Myclot will slowly dissolve with the blood thinner*. I'll have to be cautious to not get cut and I'll bruise easily. I'm still at risk for forming another clot and will be for the rest of my life. I know the warning signs now.

I don't want this to happen to anyone else. This was a very scary experience for my family and me. I never thought this could happen to me. I thought I was too young and healthy. I had read the warnings on my birth control and I assumed the only way I could get a clot was to be a heavy smoker and be overweight. This is not the case.

Pulmonary embolism is fatal if left untreated. Blood clots can break off and move into the lungs heart and brain depriving the body of the oxygen and blood supply that it needs and causing permanent tissue damage and death.

However. if caught early, a blood clot and a pulmonary embolism are extremely treatable. I have been told that I should make a full recovery. And I thank God that my pulmonary embolism was caught before it was too late.

Please pass this information on to others. If telling my story helps one person I'll be satisfied that my experience was not in vain.

Thanks,
Bonnie

 

Yaz Birth lawyers Colorado, yaz Birth Control Pills, Blood Clots, Pulmonary Embolism, Yaz lawsuits be filed

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Yaz Lawyer Colorado

Colorado Yaz Lawsuits are being filed for Colorado women with Pulmonary embolism from Yaz.

Pulmonary embolism is a life-threatening condition that can take place when a blood clot forms in an artery in a patient’s lung, which can cut off circulation in the lung. Complications include shortness of breath, pain, bloody coughing, and eventual death if the blood clot is not detected and treated. Yaz and Yasmin have been linked to blood clots, probably due to their use of the synthetic hormone drospirenone, which can lead to an increase of potassium in a patient’s bloodstream and subsequently to blood clots. Any woman who is using Yaz or Yasmin and experiences clammy skin, a bluish tint to the skin, chest pains, shortness of breath, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, bloody coughing, or fever should seek medical help as quickly as possible, as these are the signs of a Yasmin pulmonary embolism.

Yaz has reports of fatalities from yaz  blood clots, yaz  Pulmonary embolism,,yaz Stroke, yaz  Deep vein thrombosis,Yaz Heart attack

Denver Colorado yaz News, yaz Lawyers Report

But, the list of women in Colorado and Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Pueblo, Rockies, Western Slop and around the country who are claiming Yaz and Yasmin adversely affected their health is growing.

“When I told them I was on Yaz, [the doctors] told me to stop it immediately," explained Patricia Lucio.

She’s a working mother with four children who was hospitalized for more than a week, diagnosed with blood clots in her lungs.

“I tried breathing and I was just gasping for air,” she told CALL7 Investigator Tony Kovaleski.

The women’s basketball coach for the Air Force Academy, Kellie Johnson, also told her story to Kovaleski.

“I'll never forget the look on [the nurse’s] face when she told me I was having a massive pulmonary embolism. She was scared to death for me," said Johnson.

“The next day they asked me if I was on birth control and I said, ‘Yaz,’ and they said, 'You will not take that anymore,’" explained Johnson. She told Kovaleski that she nearly died.

“What do you think brought you to that position?” asked Kovaleski.

Johnson replied, “If I were to say anything, I would say Yasmin.”

Both women believe that the unique chemical makeup of Yaz and Yasmin caused pulmonary embolism and both women believe more women are at risk.

Now, dozens of Colorado women and more than 1,500 women nationwide have filed suit against Bayer, the maker of Yaz and its predecessor Yasmin.

"I tried to stay healthy, but I just kept getting sick. I've had several ER visits after the whole experience because of the pain in my lungs," said Lucio.

The most recent figures on reported cases of health problems with Yaz and available from the Food and Drug Administration are from late 2009. The FDA said it has more than 1,700 reported cases of blood clots connected to Yaz and Yasmin, including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis.

The FDA is currently testing Yaz and other birth control pills and recently forced Bayer to change the contents of its labeling and correct misperceptions created by some of its commercials for Yaz.

Bayer declined a 7NEWS request for an on-camera interview. A company representative sent Kovaleski and e-mail reading, in part, ”Bayer stands behind the safety of its oral contraceptives.”

It continued, “The lawsuits filed by Plaintiffs focus on side effects warned about in labeling for Yaz and Yasmin… Bayer will defend itself vigorously against these lawsuits.”

“This product is one of Bayer’s largest profit centers and they are going to fight to the very end," said Michael Burg. He is one of three lead attorneys nationwide who are representing women suing Bayer.

Burg told Kovaleski, “I have done this long enough to know when a company is going to protect its product regardless of what kind of damage it is doing to the public."

Through tears, Lucio told Kovaleski, “This past year has been — the ER visits, not being able to do things with my kids or my friends — if it's not the [pulmonary embolism] it was something else. It just really affected my body a lot."

There are conflicting studies on the safety of Yaz and Yasmin. Some conclude the two pharmaceuticals, because of their unique chemical makeup, present increased risks of blood clots.

Bayer said all birth control pills carry some risk of blood clots and its testing concluded there is no greater risk to users of Yaz and Yasmin.

WASHINGTON — Several members of the FDA advisory committee that endorsed drospirenone-containing birth control pills had ties to Bayer, the company that makes the two most popular drospirenone-containing drugs, Yaz and Yasmin, according to a media report.

The panelists all participated in a Dec. 8 joint meeting of the which voted 15-11 that the benefits of drospirenone-containing birth control pills outweigh the risk of venous thromboembolism.

Blood Clots in the Lung (Pulmonary Embolism – PE) at 28 Years Old: Bonnie's Story

I'm talking about this because I want everyone to know the risks and symptoms. This is not something I thought could happen to me.
