All blood thinners come with an inherent risk of bleeding but unlike similar medications, Pradaxa has no known antidote or reversal agent to counteract serious bleeding events and there is no standard method with which to measure the anticoagulant effects of Pradaxa. Certain estimates claim there have been over 250 deaths linked exclusively to Pradaxa and most families may not be aware that this dangerous drug is to blame for the loss of their loved one.
Based upon these potentially life-threatening issues, the FDA published a December, 2011 Safety Communication informing consumers that Pradaxa may cause serious bleeding more often than expected and the FDA is currently conducting further research to determine the full extent of Pradaxa’s dangers.
If you or a loved one took Pradaxa and suffered:
- Internal Bleeding
- Gastrointestinal Bleeding
- Kidney Bleeding
- Brain Hemorrhaging
You may be entitled to significant compensation from the manufacturer.
