Ortho Evra

The Ortho Evra® birth control patch has been prescribed to millions of women since its introduction in 2001. It remains a popular form of contraceptive despite concerns in the medical and legal communities. Serious side effects of the Ortho Evra® patch have been reported. The most severe include blood clot, stroke, and death.

The Risks of Ortho Evra® In July 2005, studies found the risk of developing potentially fatal blood clots tripled in users of the Ortho Evra® patch. The warning label on the Ortho Evra® birth control patch, required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, shows that women wearing the patch may be exposed to 60 percent more estrogen than those using oral contraceptives. Serious, life-threatening side effects of the Ortho Evra® birth control patch include these symptoms:

  • Sudden death
  • Heart attack
  • Blood clots in the legs and lungs
  • Stroke
  • Other cardiac problems

Our lawyers filed some of the first lawsuits in the nation, involving this dangerous product, and have been involved in this litigation since the news of the dangers of this Ortho Evra® became public. If you have health concerns that you think are related to Ortho Evra®, you may contact us to discuss your issues, and for us to assist you in determining if you have a case.
