Beyaz® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: Based on presently available information on Beyaz®, DRSP-containing combined oral conceptives (COCs) may be associated with a higher risk of venous thromboembolism than COCs containing the progestin levonorgestrel or some other progestins.
Our law firm’s trial attorneys work meticulously with product specialists to identify potentially harmful drugs, inaccurate warning labeling, incomplete healthcare directions, product design flaws as well as known complications. In some incidences, the manufacturer or distributor may have already taken actions to remove the drug or device, or to furnish adequate warnings. Unjustifiably, there are some cases where drug companies elect not to tell consumers or their physician that a known problem exists.
Side Effects of Beyaz® Use
Beyaz® is a combined oral contraceptive pill. Ingredients include ethinylestradiol, an estrogen and drospirenone, a synthetic progestogen. Beyaz® is also approved for the secondary indication in women who choose to use an oral contraceptive to raise folate levels for the purpose of reducing the risk of a neural tube defect in a pregnancy conceived while taking the product or shortly after discontinuing the product. Possible ill effects or negative patient outcomes may include:
- Irregular Uterine Bleeding
- Breast Tenderness
- Vascular Blood Clots
- Liver Disease
- Nausea and Vomiting
NOTE: Beyaz® is the first and only birth control approved by the FDA for four indications: pregnancy prevention, symptomatic treatment of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, treatment of moderate acne, and raising folate levels to prevent neural tube defects for women.
