Pradaxa Users Are Fighting Back
Pradaxa has been aggressively marketed as a safe and effective alternative to other blood-thinning medications. In the U.S. alone, more than 5 million Pradaxa prescriptions have been issued since its release in 2010. However, serious side effects have been continuously reported to the FDA since then and medical studies continue to emerge about serious health risks.
Thousands of reports of excessive bleeding and hundreds of reports of death and other Pradaxa side effects have been filed with the FDA. Numerous medical studies have also shown that Pradaxa increases the risk of heart attack by 33 percent. Although the FDA has released several Drug Safety Communications concerning Pradaxa, it has not been officially recalled.
Meanwhile Boehringer Ingelheim, the pharmaceutical company that makes and markets the drug, has seen a notable growth in sales: Pradaxa accounts for 77 percent of the company’s net sales. Hundreds of patients nationwide are fighting back and filing lawsuits against the drug maker. If you are one of the millions who have taken Pradaxa and experienced side effects such as excessive internal bleeding, heart attack, or stroke, it’s time to join the fight!
