Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) is a prescription blood thinner that has been used to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation that is not caused by a heart valve problem.

Did you know that almost as soon as patients started taking Pradaxa, they began to suffer serious outcomes? By November 2011 at least 260 Pradaxa patients had died from bleeding events while taking the drug and this was according to Pradaxa’s manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim.

For patients with a high risk of stroke who have a history of not always taking the medicine properly, another issue may be present with Pradaxa. Lack of monitoring by the prescribing physician can cause harmful and fatal consequences. Taking regular blood samples to ensure proper dosing with another blood thinner warfarin is not required with Pradaxa. Defective drug lawyer Julie Johnson can review your case right now and determine if these issues exist. Call her now at 214-290-8001

The manufacturer of Pradaxa lists the signs or symptoms of bleeding:

  • unusual or unexpected bruising
  • any unexpected, severe, or uncontrollable bleeding
  • bleeding that lasts a long time
  • coughing up or vomiting blood
  • vomit that looks like coffee grounds
  • pink or brown urine
  • red or black stools (looks like tar)
  • unexpected pain, swelling, or joint pain
  • headaches and feeling dizzy or weak

Did you know that Pradaxa has no known antidote? What happens when a patient takes Pradaxa and experiences bleeding due to a fall or other trauma? Once bleeding starts, it is very difficult to stop the bleeding.

If you are concerned about Pradaxa, you are not alone. Doctors around the world have grown concerned about the risks to patients with atrial fibrillation who are taking Pradaxa for the prevention of stroke.
