Yaz, a popular birth control pill, has often been prescribed for other purposes as well, such as acne control, weight control and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) reduction as well as for contraception. Also known as Drospirenone, it has been taken by many young women in their 20s and 30s for a number of years.
It is important for these women and their doctors to consider reported risks associated with taking Yaz. Also, since the drug was approved for use as a contraceptive, it is questionable whether patients understand that it has not necessarily been approved for the other uses. Talk to a Chicago Yaz drug interactions lawyer for more information if you suffered injury or harm when taking this drug.

- Heart attack
