What is Pradaxa and what is it used for?
Pradaxa is a blood-thinning drug that is given to patients who need help for various reasons to thin down their blood and prevent any kind of clotting. It is one of many blood-thinning drugs that are on the market at present, but was especially developed by the manufacturers, Boehringer Ingelheim, to replace the blood-thinning drug, warfarin.

Pradaxa was developed by Boehringer Ingelheim because it is supposedly easier to use than the likes of warfarin as it requires less monitoring.

However, the issue with Pradaxa, as the personal injury lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. are all too aware, is that warfarin can be quickly counteracted by doses of Vitamin K when abnormal bleeding problem occur. Whereas there is no such kind of quick-fix solution for people who are taking Pradaxa and then suddenly develop bleeding problems.

Indeed, the ability to be able to “fix” or “regulate” the development of abnormal bleeding in patients taking Pradaxa is in fact a problem which is shared by all of the newest kinds of blood thinner drugs on the market at present, including Xarelto, Eliquis and Lixiana, to name but a few.

What are the dangers linked to taking Pradaxa?
The problem with Pradaxa, which is a blood-thinning drug, is that it has been linked by studies undertaken by the FDA to blood-thinning on a grand scale, creating further health problems of a serious nature for the people who take the drug for other medical purposes.

The drug’s manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim, has already announced that it is investigating into deaths associated with Pradaxa, which clearly shows that the drug can have very serious affects on the health of the people who take it and this is why it is very important that you are thoroughly informed about the current climate before undertaking any kind of treatment related to the drug on any level.

Pradaxa, released in October 2010, has generated more consumer complaints for the FDA’s MedWatch than 98.7% of the other drugs on the market. The main problem is that Pradaxa has too much of an effect on clotting which, in turn, leads to hemorrhages. However, the FDA has also warned patients to immediately contact a medical expert or health provider if they notice any kind of problem related to bleeding on any level, including:

Unusual bleeding from the gums
Frequent nose bleeds
Unusually heavy menstrual or vaginal bleeding
Severe or uncontrolled bleeding when you cut yourself
Urine that is pink or brown in color
Stool that has the consistency of tar and / or is red or black in color
Bruises that cannot be explained and which get bigger over time
Coughing up blood or blood clots
Vomiting blood or other kinds of strange substances
