Pradaxa May Cause Fatal Bleeding

Pradaxa was first prescribed to prevent blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation. 
Initially approved by the FDA in 2010, Pradaxa was marketed as an alternative to the popular blood thinner Warafin. However, despite the drug maker's claims of a safer drug, studies have shown Pradaxa to be linked to a higher link of gastrointestinal bleeding.

While the anti-clotting action of Pradaxa can treat this condition, it can also lead to potentially fatal bleeding such as:

Brain hemorrhaging
Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding
Kidney bleeding
Internal bleeding

After only two years on the market, the anticoagulant drug Pradaxa had been linked to more than 500 deaths. That number is now in the thousands.


Black Box 


Pradaxa is required to carry the U.S. FDA's strongest warning in the form of a boxed warning. This is designed to call out attention to serious or life-threatening risks associated with the drug. 

Pradaxa Manufacturer Pays $650 Million Settlement

It is a drug maker’s responsibility to perform thorough testing and notify the FDA and public of the full extent of a drug’s risks. When this does not happen, the individuals and families harmed should consider speaking with an attorney to understand their rights. In May 2014, Pradaxa’s manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim, announced a $650 million payout to victims of Pradaxa involved in an estimated 4,000 lawsuits.

Antidote Too

Late For Some

An antidote for Pradaxa now exists. It's called Praxbind and was granted accelerated approval by the FDA in October 2015. Although effective at reversing the anticoagulation effects of Pradaxa, many are saying the drug arrived years too late. 

Patients were left without an antidote for years, leaving victims to suffer hemorrhages and other ill-effects. Even worse, the wholesale cost of one prescribed doses of the antidote comes to a staggering $3,500.  

If you were injured by Pradaxa, you could be entitled to compensation for damages.
