Evital has not been approved by the FDA for use in the United States.

This potentially ineffective and suspect counterfeit emergency birth control may also be in distribution in some Hispanic communities in the United States.  

The packaging label of the potentially ineffective and suspect counterfeit version says, "Evital Anticonceptivo de emergencia, 1.5 mg, 1 tablet", by "Fluter Domull" :

  • Contact your doctor or health care professional if you have taken Evital labeled as the 1.5 mg tablet and experienced any problems.
  • There are FDA-approved emergency birth control medicines available both with a prescription, and over-the-counter without a prescription (if you are 17 years old or older).
  • You should talk with a doctor, pharmacist, or health care professional to find the FDA-approved emergency birth control medicine best for you.

FDA is asking for help from consumers who have information about Evital. Please send an email to CDER_Ingredient_Adulteration@fda.hhs.gov  to provide information or if you have more questions.  

Any information received is confidential and will be used only to help in FDA's effort to remove the potentially unsafe and ineffective versions from the U.S. marketplace.

Health care professionals and consumers are asked to report adverse events related to the use of suspect counterfeit versions of Evital to
