Pradaxa is a prescription blood thinner that is meant to keep patients safe from dangerous medical conditions like stroke, and to help patients recover from hip and knee surgery. However, hundreds of people across the country say that this thrombin inhibitor has led to serious harm or the death of a loved one. Even the manufacturer of the drug, Boehringer Ingelheim, admits that they have received 260 reports of serious adverse health effects related to Pradaxa between March 2008 and October 2011.
Praxada was approved by the FDA in 2010. Not long afterward, reports of serious internal bleeding and life-threatening gastrointestinal problems began to surface. Just over a year after its initial approval, the FDA released a statement that it would look into the high number of serious complications associated with Pradaxa. Soon after, product liability lawsuits were filed by dozens of people who suffered injuries that they believe should have been prevented by the drug manufacturer.
