Did you or a loved one experience side effects or injury from Pradaxa® (Dabigatran)?

Pradaxa®, also known as Dabigatran, is an oral anticoagulant approved by the FDA in 2010.

Pradaxa® is manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim, a German pharmaceutical company. Pradaxa® is part of the class of medications known as direct thrombin inhibitors and is sold as an alternative to the drug known as Warfarin.

Pradaxa® is primarily used to help prevent strokes and severe or serious blood clots in patients with atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is a condition where the heart beats irregularly.

Pradaxa® is meant for patients who do not suffer from heart valve disease. In fact, the makers of Pradaxa® advise patients not to use the drug who have had or plan to have a valve in their heart replaced. Consumers should read the medication insert materials carefully for more detailed warnings and contraindications.

Pradaxa® is a blood thinner that is intended to help prevent blood clots from forming in the body. Patients with atrial fibrillation take Pradaxa® because they are at an increased risk of forming blood clots that can lead to strokes and even death.

We are now evaluating potential claims where Pradaxa® has caused dangerous internal bleeding. If you or a loved one have taken Pradaxa® and suffered internal bleeding that has lead to medical care, we would like to speak with you.

Sadly, some patients have even died from bleeding events that potentially are linked to Pradaxa® use.
