Sudden vision problems in one or both eyes can be symptoms of a stroke in women. If these problems continue or worsen, it is important to see a doctor immediately. Strokes are the third leading cause of death in the United States and one of the most common causes for adult disability.
Other symptoms associated with strokes are sudden dizziness, confusion, trouble speaking or understanding and sudden partial paralysis in the face, arms or legs. If you are experiencing any combination of these symptoms with vision problems, you should call 9-1-1 immediately.
A stroke occurs when a broken blood vessel or blood clot restricts or stops the flow of blood to the brain. This can cause brain cells to die resulting in brain damage, loss of bodily functions, or even death.
Experts have linked the progestin hormone in Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella to strokes in women who would not normally be at risk. These drugs can raise the level of potassium in the blood, which can cause a condition called hyperkalemia. Hyperkalemia, in turn, can lead to strokes, blood clots or heart attacks.
The FDA has warned the makers of Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella, that the active ingredients in their drugs may lead to potentially serious heart problems or stroke.
