Yaz is a combination birth control pill containing drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol. It is marketed not only as a contraceptive pill, but as a proven treatment for premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a condition with severe emotional and physical premenstrual symptoms. Yaz is also marketed as an effective treatment for moderate acne. However, studies indicate that Yaz poses a particular health hazard because one of its two primary ingredients, drospirenone, is a diuretic, which can cause an increase in potassium levels in the blood and lead to hyperkalemia, which causes heart rhythm disturbances that can cause blood clots leading to sudden cardiac death or pulmonary embolism or strokes. Diuretics can also cause significant problems with the gallbladder, leading to gallbladder removal. We are investigating claims with documented use of Yaz and a diagnosis of heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, DVT, or gallbladder removal.
