Pradaxa Lawsuit Attorney
Are you suffering from Pradaxa side effects? Was your health put at risk by the blood thinning medication Pradaxa?
Pradaxa, a blood thinner and alternative to Warfarin, is used by patients with irregular heartbeats to prevent serious blood clots or stroke. The FDA approved the drug in 2010 and it was hailed as the first alternative to Warfarin in nearly 60 years. Sales of the drug grew to over 725,000 units. But the drug has one major flaw.
While Warfarin can be counteracted with a dose of vitamin K, Pradaxa has no such antidote and adverse effects can not be reversed. Concerns about the drug’s safety were raised almost as soon as it arrived on the market. Pradaxa is the primary suspect in over 500 deaths since 2011, according to the FDA. If you have questions or concerns about Pradaxa, call a Pradaxa Lawsuit Attorney today at (888) 888-0612.
