Serious Side Effects of Yasmin
Pharmaceutical drug marketers exploit consumer demand for quick and easy, worry-free solutions. In 2001, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Yaz/Yasmin as a birth control pill. It was heavily marketed to young women seeking a safe, alternative birth control; but the marketing blitz overshadowed the harmful side effects of the pill. Bayer, the manufacturer of Yasmin, first advertised that it could treat acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) symptoms such as anxiety, depression, irritability, fatigue, water retention, sleep and appetite changes, joint or muscle pain, headache, breast tenderness, and weight gain. Unfortunately, attention and warnings were steered away from potentially life-threatening side effects, including:
- Blood clotting (thrombosis or hemostasis)
- Chest pain
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Gallbladder disease
- High blood pressure
- Kidney or liver failure
- Pulmonary embolism (PE)
- Stomach pain
- Venous thromboembolism (VTE)
