Ortho Evra Lawsuit
Risks Linked to Ortho Evra
Thrombosis, or the formation of blood clots in blood vessels, is a possible side effect of using Ortho Evra. Blood clots that occur in the legs, lungs, heart, or brain can be especially dangerous, or even may lead to a wrongful death.
Studies have shown that women using Ortho Evra may be twice as likely to experience non-fatal thrombosis as women who use oral contraceptives. Additional studies show that women who use Ortho Evra are up to three times as likely to experience fatal thrombosis.
