Gianvi is manufactured and marketed by Teva Pharmaceuticals, and it is a generic version of the birth control drug, Yaz. Both drugs are designed to prevent pregnancy by altering ovulation, as well as by modifying cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus wall, both processes working in tandem to prevent contraception.
Unfortunately, Gianvi is one of a class of drugs that contains the potentially life-threatening hormone, drospirenone. Among numerous other serious side effects, the presence of drospirenone in a woman’s body has been scientifically linked to a statistically significant increase in the incidence of dangerous blood clot formation, strokes and pulmonary embolisms, any one of which can lead to death.
In addition to the very real dangers of Gianvi as a birth control drug, off-label (non-FDA approved) uses include treatment for acne, as well as premenstrual dysphoric disorder that is oftentimes referred to as mood-altering PMS. The clear and present danger of Gianvi use is demonstrated by the fact that, between 2004 and 2008, over 50 fatalities have been associated with various drugs that contain drospirenone.
The chief causes of death in the above-mentioned fatalities are pulmonary embolisms, blood clots and myocardial infarction (heart attacks). Among yet additional life-threatening side effects, Gianvi use has also been linked to gallbladder disease that can result in removal of the organ.
