Thousands of Yaz Lawsuits Will Take Years to Resolve

More trouble for Bayer’s contraceptive pill Yaz.  It has been named in several lawsuits that claim women suffered blood clots and strokes as a result of using Yaz.

As we have reported previously, in October 2008, the FDA cited two Yaz commercials for deceptive claims. In a warning letter, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) faulted Bayer for overstating the benefits of Yaz. The FDA warning letter  also said the television commercials minimized the risks posed by Yaz. The FDA  criticized the ads for containing fast-moving images and background music that might be distracting to viewers.  These elements were aired while information about potential Yaz side effects – including potentially life-threatening blood clots – was described. 

Bayer ended up pulling the misleading ads.  It also reached an agreement with the FDA and 27 state attorneys general to run new TV spots correcting the misinformation from the pulled commercials.  They began running in early 2009.

Now, plaintiffs in Yaz lawsuits allege Bayer overstated the benefits of Yaz and failed to warn that it could put women at risk of serious injury.  It is expected that many other alleged Yaz victims are poised to file additional lawsuits.

Yaz contains a synthetic type of progestin called drospirenone.   According to the FDA, drospirenone can lead to hyperkalemia, a condition caused by excessive amounts of potassium in the blood, in high risk patients.   This condition may result in potentially serious heart and health problems.

Because of this risk, women with conditions that predispose them to hyperkalemia (such as renal insufficiency, hepatic dysfunction and adrenal insufficiency) should not take YAZ.   Women taking YAZ must also be concerned about the drug interactions that could increase potassium.
