Understanding Your Dangerous Drug Case

Pradaxa is a blood thinning drug manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim. When a patient has atrial fibrillation, or an abnormal heartbeat, he is more susceptible to a stroke from blood clots. Blood thinners stop blood from clotting. Pradaxa, however, is a problem because it does not contain an agent that can reverse the blood thinning process.

For example, if a person taking Pradaxa is in a car accident or sustains a fall that results in internal or external bleeding, the person could be in serious jeopardy because the bleeding won't stop. Fatalities have been reported due to excessive bleeding. Other symptoms linked to Pradaxa include:

  • Coughing up blood
  • Frequent nosebleeds
  • Excessive bruising
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
