Ocella Side Effects

Ocella, YAZ and Yasmin are birth control pills, or oral contraceptives. Ocella is the generic equivalent of Yasmin; Ocella is manufactured by Barr Laboratories. Yaz and Yasmin are manufactured by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Each of these birth control pills contain ethinyl estradiol and the new “fourth generation” progestin drospirenone (DRSP). Drospirenone is already well-known for increasing the risk for hyperkalemia. However, these DRSP oral contraceptives have also been associated with adverse side effects such as:

  • Blood Clots
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
  • Stroke
  • Cerebrovascular Accidents (CVA)
  • Heart Attack
  • Myocardial Infarction
  • Gallbladder Disease / Injury
  • Gallbladder Removal (cholecystectomy)
  • Kidney Failure or Renal Failure
  • Pancreatitis
  • Death

Ocella Lawsuit

On October 1, 2009 the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) issued a Transfer Order which creates MDL No. 2100.  This means that all Ocella, Yaz, and Yasmin personal injury and wrongful death cases filed in the federal court system will be consolidated into a Multidistrict Litigation, or MDL, with U.S. District Court Judge David R. Herndon presiding over these Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella lawsuit cases.
