Yasmin Lawsuit History
Yasmin and other similar birth control pills were touted by Bayer has being a new generation of birth control pills that would have less side effects than previous birth control pills. The major change in Yasmin and other birth pills was the addition of a new ingredient, Drospirenone. Interestingly enough it is this very chemical that has now been linked to blood clots and related injuries and has resulted in a wave of Yasmin Lawsuits being brought against Bayer.
The current Yasmin Lawsuit was not the first issue Bayer has had to face over Yasmin and its other birth control pills containing Drospirenone. The FDA has taken previous actions against Bayer for off label marketing of some of its birth control products. Off Label Marketing is the practice of marketing a drug for a purpose for which it has not been FDA approved. Off Label Marketing is not allowed by the FDA. Ironically, the additional sales generated by off label marketing will likely result in additional Yasmin Lawsuits as women took Yasmin who may not otherwise have taken the drug if not for the off label marketing. Women who were prescribed Yasmin for off label uses and experienced a blood clot related injury are just as eligible to file a Yasmin Lawsuit as women who took Yasmin for its approved indication. In some cases additional claims may be included in a Yasmin Lawsuit as a result of the off label marketing Bayer has already been cited for.
