Recent reports link taking Pradaxa to serious side effects that include internal bleeding
Pradaxa is a blood thinner primarily prescribed for those with atrial fibrillation. With atrial fibrillation, patients have a higher risk of forming blood clots near the heart which can travel through the body and cause strokes. Pradaxa is used to lower the chance of blood clots forming.
According to recent disclosures by Boehringer, the maker of Pradaxa, several hundred patients have already died due to internal bleeding side effects while taking Pradaxa. Side effects include:
- Cerebral Hemorrhaging
- Internal Bleeding
If you or a loved one suffered from internal bleeding after taking Pradaxa, contact the Steinberg Law Firm P.C. at 888-529-4688 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
