Pradaxa Side Effects Attorney

Have you experienced serious side effects after taking Pradaxa?

Pradaxa (Dabigatran) is an oral anticoagulant that was approved by the FDA in 2010. Pradaxa is from the class of direct thrombin inhibitors and it is manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim, a German pharmaceutical company, and is sold as an alternative to Warfarin. Pradaxa is used by patients to prevent strokes and serious blood clots in those individuals with atrial fibrillation (a condition where the heart beats irregularly) who don't suffer from heart valve disease. With atrial fibrillation, the patient is at an increased risk of forming blood clots which can lead to strokes. Pradaxa is in the class of blood thinner medications intended to prevent blood clots from forming in the body.

The medicine comes in the form of a capsule and is taken orally, usually without food twice a day. Patients are told to swallow the capsule whole and not to chew or crush the medicine. There are numerous side effects associated with taking Pradaxa (Dabigatran) including: nausea, heartburn, stomach pain, rash, hives, dizziness, itching and difficulty breathing or swallowing.

Serious side effects associated with the drug include: coughing up blood, vomiting material that is bloody and has the appearance of coffee grounds, reduced kidney function, internal bleeding and death.

Pradaxa Injury Lawsuits

Although Pradaxa may have demonstrated a few benefits over Warfarin, its general safety is under close scrutiny. As a result of patient injuries and deaths, the FDA has increased its warnings on the drug's label, alerting patients about the increased risk of serious internal bleeding in Pradaxa users, especially in patients who are older or already experiencing reduced kidney function. Tragically, these bleeding events have proven to be life-threatening and fatal to some Pradaxa users.

Recently, Pradaxa users and the family members of those who have been killed after taking Pradaxa have begun filing lawsuits against the drug manufacturer. As a result of these lawsuits, the dangerous drug lawyers at Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP are now representing individual patients and the surviving family members of those who have died after taking the drug in their injury and death claims. If you or someone you love has been injured after taking Pradaxa, contact a Pradaxa attorney at Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP to schedule a free case evaluation.
