Pradaxa Can Be Harmful - Learn Your Rights

Pradaxa was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in fall of 2010 as an alternative to Coumadin, a blood thinning medication. Pradaxa was hailed as a break-through drug for people suffering with a heart condition known as A-Fib or Atrial Fibrillation. Pradaxa was the first drug of this type to be released in the market for over fifty years.

Advertised as a “safe” alternative to Coumadin, Pradaxa was not out on the market for very long when the harmful, evenly deadly, side-effects began to appear. Pradaxa can cause internal bleeding and hemorrhaging that can lead to severe injury or death.

Unlike Coumadin, that is not free of side effects either, there is no counteragent or antidote for Pradaxa. If a person begins to have side effects or bleeding due to the drug, medical professionals can only ease the symptoms and “hope for the best.”

Pradaxa has also been shown to increase a person risk of heart attack by 33 percent, an incredibly high percentage for a medication designed to help people with heart troubles.
