Yasmin Side Effects
Yasmin Birth Control Attorney: Frank M. Eidson
Yasmin, or “Yaz” as it’s been marketed as by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, has recently been linked to a number of serious side effects. Since its 2001 release, studies have suggested Yasmin users are at subject to an increased likelihood of developing heart and cardiovascular problems, gallbladder disease and diabetes.
In fact, the Food and Drug Administration has recently forced Bayer to alter the way they are marketing Yasmin birth control pills. Bayer’s TV ads were misleading; “[they] over-promise the benefits and minimize the risk associated with Yaz.” Shortly thereafter, the Yasmin TV spots changed dramatically.

Non-FDA-approved Marketing of Yasmin
In Yasmin birth control lawsuits, an attorney protects the legal rights of women who were led to believe that taking Yasmin could eliminate their PMS (premenstrual syndrome) or that Yasmin could be used solely to clear up acne.
These claims by Bayer Healthcare – seen by millions of Americans over several months through television ads – were retracted after the FDA demanded that Bayer restrict its marketing of Yasmin to only FDA-approved applications of the drug.
Shortly thereafter, Yasmin’s television commercials changed significantly. The new version even features a woman acknowledging that “you may have seen some Yaz commercials recently that were not clear… the FDA wants us to correct a few points of those ads.” She goes on to clarify that Yasmin is approved to treat PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder), not PMS.
Additionally, the commercial points out that Yasmin is not approved for maintaining clear skin and that there are a number of health risks and side effects associated with Yasmin use.
Is Yasmin Birth Control Safe?
Yasmin has become Bayer’s number one selling drug generating over $1.2 billion in sales. However, recent studies have shown that Yasmin might not be as safe as first thought.
In fact, Bayer has aggressively marketed Yasmin without adequately warning the public of its serious, potentially-life threatening side effects. Yasmin has been linked to the following serious side effects:
- Heart attack
- Cardiovascular problems
- Gallbladder disease
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism
- High blood pressure

Yasmin Individual and Class Action Lawsuits
The Yasmin lawyers at Frank M. Eidson, P.A., are investigating Yasmin lawsuits on behalf of women throughout the United States who have suffered serious side effects as a result of Yasmin use. Nationwide, numerous Yasmin lawsuits have been filed against Bayer. These claims have alleged that the drug makers:
- Failed to adequately warn consumers and the medical community about Yaz side effects.
- Failed to adequately test and research Yaz before placing it on the market.
- Failed to issue a Yaz recall after it became apparent that it is an unreasonable dangerous drug.
- Aggressively marketed Yaz and encouraged misuse despite the known dangers of Yaz use.
The drug makers had sole access to facts concerning the potential Yaz problems, and ignored the correlation between their drug and potentially life-threatening side effects. Yaz safety concerns were concealed and misrepresentations were made.
