Pradaxa Side Effects

Since it received approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010, Pradaxa, a prescription blood thinner, has been prescribed to patients to reduce the risk of stroke or serious blood clots.  According to the FDA, this drug has been linked to approximately 260 deaths.

The most common Pradaxa Side Effects include:

  • Fatigue,
  • Unusual bleeding & hemorrhaging,
  • Pink or brown urine,
  • Red or black stools,
  • Coughing blood,
  • Vomiting that resembles blood or looks like coffee grounds,
  • Bleeding from the gums,
  • Regular nosebleeds,
  • Joint pain & swelling,
  • Headaches,
  • Dizziness,
  • Weakness and swelling of the joints,
  • Intestinal bleeding, and even
  • Death.

In fact, patients taking Pradaxa, have a 33% higher risk of suffering a heart attack or severe symptoms of heart disease than patients who are on Warfarin, another drug prescribed by doctors use to treat patients at risk of stroke from blood clotting, according to a study performed by the Cleveland Clinic.  In many cases, negative side effects may not be perceived as tied to the drug until more serious complications, such as internal bleeding, occur.

Pradaxa Investigation

German pharmaceutical manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim reported in 2014 that the company faces more than 2,000 lawsuits in the United States in relation to its stroke prevention medication, Pradaxa, because the drug reportedly caused severe and even fatal bleeding.  The company stated that it knew about the dangerous side effect of its blockbuster drug, but that it had to weigh the potential life-saving benefits against the harm.

On July 23, 2014, the British Medical Journal found that the risk for major adverse bleeding while taking the Pradaxa could be significantly reduced with regular blood plasma level monitoring.  The study stated: “if the plasma levels of the drug were measured and the dose was adjusted accordingly, major bleeds could be reduced by 30-40% compared with well controlled warfarin.”  A few years earlier, the European Medicines Agency reported more than 250 cases of serious and sometimes fatal bleeding associated with the use of this drug.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.

John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.
