St Louis Heart Attack Lawyers
Heart Attack after Taking Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella®
The risk of heart attack (myocardial infarction or MI) increases when taking any drug that increases the body's blood clotting mechanism. The birth control pills Yaz®, Yasmin® and Ocella® contain the hormones progestin and estrogen that may increase blood clotting when used in combination.
Being Young Does Not Make You Immune
At The Roberts Law Firm, P.C., we help women who have suffered heart attacks while taking Yaz®, Yasmin® and Ocella®. We file lawsuits that seek compensation for the patient's damages and costs. Injury to the heart in younger patients is particularly serious as it may not be diagnosed until significant damage has already occurred.
Symptoms of Heart Attack
Whatever your age, you should seek immediate medical help if you experience these symptoms while taking Yaz®, Yasmin®, Ocella® or related drugs:
- Sudden chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Heart palpitations
- Weakness and fatigue
- Stomach discomfort that feels like indigestion but does not go away
- Loss of consciousness
Recovery from a Heart Attack Can Be Lengthy and Expensive
A heart attack may cause no symptoms until there is already significant damage to the heart. Recovering from one can take considerable time and require you to change your lifestyle. Heart attacks can result in your inability to work or undertake other previous activities. They can result in surgery, which can increase recovery time significantly. In short, a heart attack can cause damage to your physical health as well as your financial health. It can even result in sudden death.
