Pradaxa Injury Lawyers


In August 2014, lawsuits were filed on behalf of patients who were effected by the blood thinner Xarelto.

Blood clots can be deadly. Patients who have atrial fibrillation take blood thinning medications to reduce their risk for such life-threatening conditions as blood clots, stroke and pulmonary embolism. Pradaxa, a medication prescribed for the treatment of atrial fibrillation, has been associated with serious side effects.

With other anti-coagulants, such as Coumarin and Warfarin, physicians must monitor their patients’ progress with periodic blood tests. In contrast, Pradaxa has been marketed as a “fire and forget” medicine. However, recent U.S. studies show that some patients transitioning to Pradaxa from other anti-coagulants have experienced gastric bleeding, blood clots and other serious side effects. At least one treatment-related death has occurred. International researchers have reported similar results.

Pradaxa can cause additional complications with patients who don’t always remember to take their medication, including patients who skip doses to save money on expensive prescription drugs. Many patients don’t realize that missing one or two doses of Pradaxa can have serious consequences. Inconsistent dosages can significantly increase a patient’s risk for developing blood clots.
