A South Carolina nurse, 33, joins many others in filing suit against Bayer because of injuries related to Yaz. In March 2008 she was prescribed Yaz for the treatment of acne. Bayer claimed that Yaz was a great treatment for acne, but they did not mention that the FDA had not approved Yaz for that sort of treatment. In 2008 the FDA warned Bayer about confusing and misleading consumers about the benefits of Yaz.
After taking Yaz for several months the SC woman began experiencing pain in her left shoulder and was having a difficult time breathing. She was diagnosed with blood clots in her lungs. After being hospitalized and treated successfully she was released from the hospital. Just a short time later though she had to undergo surgery to have her gallbladder removed as a result of gallstones because of Yaz.
