Yaz contraceptive pill to stay on the market
Monday, 28 September, 2009, 15:15
A contraceptive pill, which contains a compound suspected of causing the recent death of a young woman and leaving another seriously ill, will not be removed from the market.
The medicines supervisor, Swissmedic, says that the Yaz pill is no more dangerous than other contraceptives which contain Drospirenone.
Tests have been carried out on Yaz, Yasmin and Yasminelle pills, all produced by the German company Bayer, the results of which will be released next month.
However, Swissmedic said today that they estimate that the three drugs ‘don’t pose any particular risk.’
