Drug company Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay $68 million in 2008 to resolve more than 4,000 lawsuits filed by women who used the birth control patch and suffered blood clots, heart attacks and strokes. The lawsuits allege that J&J knew about the increased levels of estrogen released by the patch, but failed to warn users about the risk of blood clots and other serious side effects. J&J has faced other lawsuits filed by patients who claim they suffered strokes or clots in the legs or lungs. Johnson & Johnson has not disclosed the settlements or any possible reserves for Ortho Evra side effect victims.
