Yaz Heart Problems
Yaz, Yasmin and, its generic equivalent, Ocella (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol) is a popular form of birth control. It is also marketed and prescribed for noncontraceptive purposes, including acne control and to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). The FDA has found that the synthetic estrogen drospirenone contained in these medications can adversely affect the body’s salt and water balance, which can lead to serious cardiac issues. If you or a loved one has suffered from Yaz-related heart problems, it is important to seek experienced legal help.

Our firm represents individuals throughout Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Washington, California and across the United States.
Cardiac Side Effects of Yaz
Because Yaz and other medications containing drospirenone can result in high levels of potassium in the blood, also known as hyperkalemia, the side effects of Yaz can be extremely serious, and may include:
- Heart attack
- Heart palpitations
- Pulmonary embolism (PE)
- Deep vein thrombosis

It is important to note that we are not a class-action law firm. We represent clients on an individual basis to ensure that they receive the detailed, one-on-one attention that they deserve.
