Ortho Evra

What If I Take an Overdose?

An Ortho Evra overdose is unlikely, for various reasons. However, women who take too much of a combined hormonal contraceptive (such as Ortho Evra) may experience the following symptoms:
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Other menstrual irregularities.

Storage Methods for Ortho Evra

Keep Ortho Evra and all other medications out of the reach of children.

Is There a Generic Version of Ortho Evra?

The medication is available in generic form (see Generic Ortho Evra).
