I went to get a refill yesterday and was told that the ortho evera patch is being taken off of the market. I have been looking for something to confirm what I was told but have not found anything about it. I am wondering if anyone else has heard anything about this. This has been the best method for me and am sad to hear that they aren't going to be made anymore. I am dreading the search for a new birth control after finally finding one that worked so well for me.
These days with the stuff people are being told, call a different pharmacy and ask. for example if a cvs told you that call walmart. Individual distributors have been a problem. No one else has said anything here about it. I just went to their web site. They don't seem to think it's being taken off the Market. There are a bunch of ambulance chasing lawyers saying it should be. Its no different then any other birth control. It has side effects.
Hi! That's what they told me too, they discontinued orthoevra. Cvs has given me the Xulane patch. Try telling them about it. I recently got it and put on my new patch today so I don't have pros and cons just yet.
