Another medicine is under alert. After taking Pradaxa, the FDA reported that 25 people are dead and almost one thousand people have complained of serious complications - half requiring hospitalization. However, the drug has not been recalled yet.
Pradaxa is used to help patients who have a higher risk of stroke. It is used to prevent blood clots in patients who have undergone surgery. Apparently, the side effects outweigh the benefits for those who use it. Side effects include internal and gastrointestinal bleeding, plus internal hemorrhaging.
If you or a loved one has been taking Pradaxa and have experienced any of the side effects, contact your doctor immediately and then consult with a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who is successful in defending product liability cases.
