Texas Prescription Drug Lawyer Discusses Dangers of Pradaxa

If your loved one died or has been seriously affected by Pradaxa, you may be suffering yourself, not able to think straight and left with many questions. Questions like: Why didn’t the makers of Pradaxa provide stronger warnings? Why didn’t they issue a Pradaxa recall when they were receiving complaints? 

When a company knows that their medication is linked to hemorrhaging and deaths and doesn’t do anything to correct the problem or pull the dangerous drug off the shelves, then they should be held accountable for their wrongdoings. 

Our Texas prescription drug law firm is currently taking cases and representing patients who have been injured or families who have lost a loved one from a heart attack or hemorrhaging due to Pradaxa. We believe that Boehringer Ingelheim (the maker of Pradaxa) should be held accountable for their actions. 

Why should someone who already has a heart ailment – arterial fibrillation – be led to think that he or she should be on Pradaxa to lower the risk of developing blood clots and prevent strokes only to find out that the dangerous drug is linked to hemorrhaging and heart attacks? 

Dangers of Pradaxa

Hundreds of people have died from severe internal bleeding and heart attacks while taking this drug. Studies have now indicated that Pradaxa is linked to excessive bleeding that doctors cannot stop. Even the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is aware of the concerns and has issued a safety announcement regarding the use of Pradaxa. 

The FDA is currently evaluating reports that have been submitted to the agency’s Adverse Events Reporting System regarding excessive bleeding caused by this medicine. However, there is no recall at this point, as the FDA has indicated patients should use the drug as directed and doctors should only prescribe this medication accordingly. 

As their investigation continues, our fight for your family begins. No patient should have to suffer serious or even fatal side effects because they were taking a dangerous drug unknowingly. If Boehringer Ingelheim failed to research the dangerous side effects of Pradaxa before releasing this drug, you shouldn’t be left to suffer the results of their wrongdoings.
