Recent findings that link the use of the birth control medications Yasmin and Yaz with a range of dangerous side effects has prompted patient lawsuits against the manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals. More than 100 such lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. Through these lawsuits, Bayer has been accused of not thoroughly researching the effects of Yaz and Yasmin. Also, some plaintiffs have suggested that the company was negligent for failing to recall the medications after studies showed that the medications had potential for potentially fatal side effects.
In addition, lawsuits against Bayer have asserted that the company overemphasized the benefits of the medication, especially the medication’s treatment of acne, while downplaying potential side effects that could be life-threatening. After FDA action, marketing for the Yaz brand of oral contraceptives was changed, but not before the drug was prescribed to a lot of women.

The risk for largely cardiovascular side effects is indicated on the packaging of both Yaz and Yasmin. Risk of side effects is higher among women over the age of 35 and heavy smokers.
