Have You Suffered From Severe Adverse Complications Following Pradaxa Use?
For those with heart conditions such as atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat), Pradaxa® seemed like a promising solution to prevent the formation of blood clots and to reduce the risk of stroke.
Unfortunately, many users of Pradaxa have experienced more harm than good. Pradaxa was reported as one of the top 10 drugs on the market with the most frequent adverse reactions by patients. The adverse effects of the drug include:
- Bleeding from the gums
- Coughing up blood; vomiting blood
- Difficulty clotting when cut
- Discolored urine or stools
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Joint pain
- Swelling of the joints
- Unusual bleeding or bruising
The FDA provides details on these risks to Pradaxa patients and a warning is included with the medication. However, these risks are only the beginning to a host of dangers Pradaxa poses. The link between Pradaxa and life-threatening complications has been reported by numerous sources outlining the potential dangers of taking this drug.
Those who currently suffer from kidney problems or impaired renal function have a much higher risk for complications when taking Pradaxa.
The Dangers of Pradaxa
The potential side effects of Pradaxa are serious and life threatening, some startling statistics include:
- 15 of the complaints indicated a potential link to liver failure
- 291 complaints linked Pradaxa to acute renal failure
- 542 complaints indicated that Pradaxa had caused death
- 644 complaints indicated Pradaxa had caused a stroke
- 2,367 complaints indicated that Pradaxa had caused hemorrhage
The main reason the FDA tracks complaints is to properly identify the dangerous drugs on the market and open an FDA investigation into the drug manufacturers.
