What is Pradaxa?
Pradaxa is a medication that is prescribed by physicians for the purpose of reducing the chance of a stroke in the patient. It is a blood thinning medication for those with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, which is an abnormality of the heart rhythm. The FDA approved this drug and it has not been recalled, even though its consumers face serious risk of injury and wrongful death. In October of 2010, Pradaxa was approved for those who have issues with atrial fibrillation. An abundant number of patients since that time have been filing lawsuits against the manufacturer of Pradaxa. As a result of Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceutical’s failure to caution users against the severe risks of internal bleeding, many individuals have filed lawsuits.
If you are currently taking Pradaxa, it is important to speak with your doctor at once. You should find out if you are at risk for kidney issues that can increase the risk of being affected by this drug.
Those who are at high risk for bleeding from taking Pradaxa include those who:
- Are more than 75 years old
- Have kidney problems
- Have stomach or intestine bleeding
- Have stomach ulcers
- Take medications that increase bleeding risk
There are a few signs that you should become aware of to know whether you may be suffering from these side effects. You should take steps to obtain immediate care if you develop any signs of internal bleeding. The signs can include unusual bleeding from your gums, a frequent nosebleed, menstrual bleeding that is heavier than you usually experience, pink or brown urine, red or black stools, frequent bruises, blood when you cough, or if you are vomiting blood.
