FDA Recall, Warning or Action: Based on current data regarding drospirenone-ethinyl estradiol contraceptives may be associated with a higher risk of venous thromboembolism than birth control pills containing some other progestins.
We understand most women will take a prescription contraceptive at some point during their life. That’s why the in-house team members relentlessly monitor drug manufacturer warnings as well as the decisions handed down by state and federal courts related to dangerous medications and failed medical devices.
Side Effects of Yasmin® Use
Yasmin® (drospirenone), in combination with ethinyl estradiol, is used as an oral contraceptive in a variety of birth control drugs manufactured by Bayer. Possible Yasmin-related side effects and negative patient outcomes have included:
- Risks of Blood Clots
- Cerebrovascular Accidents
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Gallbladder Disease
- Heart Attacks or Cardiac Death
- Elevated Chromium in the Blood
NOTE: In December 2011, an FDA advisory panel voted to strengthen the warnings on Yasmin birth control pills. The goal is to effectively warn patients about the risk of blood clots associated with drospirenone-containing contraceptives.
