Comments (0)
In October 2008, the FDA issued a warning letter to Bayer, the manufacturer of YAZ about the problems related to the drug that were being reported by numerous patients.  A key ingredient in YAZ has the effect of raising potassium levels and can result in blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes, as well as pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. 

Additionally, the FDA warned Bayer not to promote YAZ as a drug for Premenstrual Syndrome.
