February 22, 2008 - Lawsuit Filed Against Ortho Evra Maker WASHINGTON -- Another lawsuit has been filed against the maker of the birth control patch Ortho Evra. The lawsuit claims 43 women developed blood clots and other health problems since taking the prescription contraceptive. The suit also claims a Maryland woman died from blood clots after wearing the patch. According to lawyers, Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical Co. should pay substantial financial damages to their clients for the health problems suffered. Similar lawsuits have been filed on behalf of 400 women nationwide. The company is not commenting..... Ok I do use this product and never had any problems with this and don't know how many other women do also... But the doctor does tell you all the health risks at least mine did when I started taking this product.. I do remember him saying Women over 30 shouldn't smoke while on this patch because it does cause health risk blood clots and yes it can kill you... What I don't understand is why do they women go back to the companies and sue them and or there family members... It states all the health risks right on the box and paper on the inside of the package... Are people really that money hungry that they have to sue a companies even though they know if they know what will happen???? What's your oppion male or female...

I do not know what's wrong with the world today. Somebody who wants to prevent conception should certainly consult a doctor about it and she should be able to get an informed opinion on any method. You did what any intelligent woman would do and have a doctor evaluate a method before trying it. As regards money, we all know the lengths that people will go through just to get money. Lawyers have their share of the blame for the increase in litigation too.

that's one thing your suppose to do before even getting this medication... I am 100% sure that they were seen by a doctor, I don't think there is any other way around of getting the birth control patch unless it was stolen.. The risks are talked about and on the label as i've stated.. But for someone to sue a company and know the risks should seriously be thrown out of court for the simple fact they knew all about it... Thanks for your reply!!
