After passing FDA approval in 2010, the blood thinning medication known as Pradaxa has caused been attributed to countless adverse effects in patients, as well as over 1,000 deaths. Our Ohio dangerous medicines attorneys will handle your Pradaxa lawsuit case.
Those negatively affected by the drug have filed a class-action lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim. If you or someone you know has experienced negative health consequences associated with the medication its time to file a Pradaxa lawsuit in Ohio.
Pradaxa was created as a blood-thinning medication at the beginning of the decade. While effective in treating stroke risk in those with atrial fibrillation, Pradaxa has been linked to gastrointestinal bleeding deaths in a vast number of patients.
It was created as an alternative to Warfarin and has been shown to have less adverse reactions to drug combinations than does Warfarin. However, its risk of causing gastrointestinal bleeding is substantial.
Compounding the issue is that until 2015 the medical community had no counter to its negative effects. It wasn’t until the antibody Praxbind was approved by the FDA, to combat the increased bleeding caused by taking Pradaxa, that patients had any treatment recourse for the negative risks associated with the drug. This left many of the early Pradaxa patients with no successful treatment options for their gastrointestinal issues. If this applies to you or someone you know, it is imperative that you file a Pradaxa lawsuit in Ohio.
In addition to the severe side effects mentioned above, common side effects of Pradaxa include:
The medication’s parent company, Boehringer Ingelheim has already paid approximately $650 million in lawsuits tied to the health consequences suffered by patients taking the drug. Nearly as soon as Pradaxa was brought to the market patients began filing suit against the company. With the over 1,000 deaths directly tied to the medication, many families have been affected by Pradaxa. If you were not part of a previous settlement and were impacted by the effects of Pradaxa before Praxbind was offered as a solution to gastrointestinal bleeding, then you may be entitled to compensation. This can extend to families of those who died as a direct result of taking Pradaxa.
