Bad Drugs need to taken off the shelf: Acutane, Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella
It is incredible that young women are still taking Yaz or Yasmin or Ocella. All we hear about these drugs are bad, bad, bad. Given all of the issues, I do not understand why they are still on the market. The power of the drug industry amazes me, that despite all of the serious and life altering side effects which can occur while taking the Yaz trio, doctors are still prescribing these drugs and young women still take them.
We have cases from all over the country. There are no geographical boundaries to taking a drug tort case. Most of our cases are either blood clot/DVT (deep vein thrombosis)/PE (pulmonary embolism), Heart Attack or Stroke.
How in the world other than taking a poison like the Yaz trio could a young woman have a heart attack or stroke? We have not had many death cases due to these injuries because the victims are young and strong. But this only means that, in the long run, these young woman will suffer with the effects of their injury for the rest of their lives. We have interviewed hundreds of prospective clients and it is amazing how many have claims. Between the Yaz trio and Accutane I don’t know which is a worse scourge in the young adult community.
Just for the record, Accutane is every bit as bad as the Yaz trio. The injuries and long term affects of this anti acne drug so far outweigh the relative health benefit that it also amazes me that Doctors can, in good faith, prescribe this drug to their patients. So many of the people we interview simply should never have qualified for taking this drug. It cannot be a causal solution to acne.
The number of young people who have developed bowel trouble after taking Accutane is incredibly high. The bowel trouble comes in many forms, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis or Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Some of the lesser known side effects of using Accutane include pancreatitis and hypertension, hair loss and hepatitis.
If you are taking either Yaz or Accutane please go back to your doctor and ask for an alternative treatment for either birth control or acne. You will never die from bad acne and you can control getting pregnant in other formats beyond these drugs. Your life is literally at risk.
