ORTHO EVRA PATCH INFORMATION, ABOUT ORTHO EVRA PATCH
ORTHO EVRA WARNING
WHAT IS ORTHO EVRA®
The Ortho Evra combination hormone patch is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains hormones similar to those found in birth control pills. The hormones are released slowly from the patch over time. Using the Ortho Evra Patch does not protect you or your partner against HIV or any other sexually transmitted disease (STD).
HOW TO USE THE ORTHO EVRA PATCH
Instructions are given in the Patient Information Leaflet which comes with the medication. Follow all of the instructions on how to use the patch and when to start in relation to you menstrual cycle. If any of the instructions is unclear, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
If you weigh more than 198 pounds (90 kg), Ortho Evra Patch may not work well for you. Make sure your doctor knows your current weight before getting a prescription.
Choose an area of clean, dry skin on the abdomen, buttock, outer upper arm or upper body (torso) exactly as directed by your doctor. Open the container and apply one patch to the area.
Do not apply the patch to:
Wear the patch for 7 days. After the 7 days, remove the patch and apply a new one. Repeat this cycle for 3 weeks (3 patches = 1 cycle).
At the end of the third cycle when the third patch is removed, you will have 1 week off. Do not use a patch during this 7 days period. Your menstrual cycle will usually start during the week when you do not use the patch. If your menstrual cycle (period) does not begin during the week you are not using the patch, consult your medical care provider.
After your 4th week, begin a new cycle of patches, even if you still are experiencing some bleeding from your period. Do not go without the patch for longer than 7 days or the medication may be less effective.
If the patch accidentally comes off, becomes detached, or is removed, apply a new patch. If it is detached or is off for longer than 24 hours or if you are unsure how long the patch has been detached or removed, additional forms of birth control (e.g., spermicide, condoms) should be used for at least 7 days. Continue with the same cycle.
After removing a patch, fold it in half so it sticks to itself. Discard it in a trash container. Do not flush the patches down the toilet.
