Ortho Evra settlements are intended to compensate women who developed serious side effects, such as blood clots, heart attack and stroke, due to use of the Ortho Evra contraceptive patch. First approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in November 2001, the Ortho Evra patch is up to 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy (when used as instructed). It may also be prescribed to treat moderate acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a severe form of PMS. The Ortho Evra patch is produced and marketed by Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.
Despite its effectiveness, however, the Ortho Evra patch can cause a range of serious side effects, the worst of which can result in fatality. In fact, the FDA received nearly 20 reports of Ortho Evra induced wrongful deaths, and this number is anticipated to be significantly higher due to the vast number of cases that go unreported.
