Ortho Evra Patch Side Effects – What You Need To Know

Our Ortho Evra contraceptive patch injury law firm was one of the first law firms in the country to represent clients in connection with serious and permanent injuries they sustained as a result of using the contraceptive patch. We also appeared on ABC’s Primetime Live with Chris Cuomo in October of 2004 as part of their groundbreaking story investigating the deaths and side effects caused by the patch.

We were interviewed because we represent the father of Zakiya Kennedy, an 18-year-old Manhattan fashion student who collapsed and died in a New York City subway station in 2004. See newspaper articles We also represent the husband of Sasha Webber, a 25-year-old mother of two young children who died while using the patch. See newspaper articles We discovered as early as March of 2004 that a medical examiner reviewing the manufacturer’s application for the FDA raised serious concerns that the risks associated with the patch were substantially greater than those of the oral contraceptive pill. In November, 2005, the FDA finally required the manufacturers to issue a black box warning label for its contraceptive patch. We are proud that we were one of the first Law firms to spearhead the efforts to inform the public about the potential deadly side effects of this product. We can help you with your claim. Here you will be able to consult with an attorney to receive guidance, counseling and advice in regard to your claim. Whether you suffered a blood clot, a pulmonary embolism, or a deep vein thrombosis, we can help you today.

The patch was first introduced on the U.S. market in November of 2001. The device is a small beige hormonal patch that is worn on the skin to prevent pregnancy. The patch is worn for one week and then replaced on the same day of the week for three consecutive weeks, with the fourth week “patch-free.” The patch works by delivering continuous levels of norelgestomin and ethinyl estradiol (progestin and estrogen, respectively) through the skin and into the bloodstream. The product is made by Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical, Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson. Ortho-McNeil promotes the patch as an easier alternative to the birth control pill because it combines the efficacy of the pill with once-a-week dosing, and it supposedly is “on your body, off your mind.”
