Proven Representation for Injured Victims
Dabigatran, better known as Pradaxa, is an oral blood-thinning anticoagulant used to treat a variety of medical conditions and reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in those diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Although a viable and proven stroke prevention medication, Pradaxa is associated with a variety of complications, including potentially life-threatening internal bleeds.
Pradaxa has been reported in conjunction with more than 500 deaths in the United States. There have also been hundreds of victims who have been seriously injured as a result of the adverse bleeding effects caused by the medication and the fact that there is no antidote to reverse its effects. Some of the most common complications and side effects associated with Pradaxa include:
- Abnormal bleeding
- Blood in urine
- Abdominal pain and discomfort
- Serious internal bleeding and hemorrhaging
- Digestive tract ulcers
- Cerebral hemorrhaging
In addition to significant bleeding complications, studies have also found that Pradaxa may increase the risk of acute coronary syndrome, or myocardial infarction, which in many cases is synonymous with heart attack.
