Pradaxa Lawsuit Case Information News
(07/05/2012) Pradaxa Lawsuit Case Information News: After a couple of years of growing concern and rising adverse event reports, the makers of Pradaxa have begun working on an antidote to assist in preventing the fatal bleeding events associated with Pradaxa. More information on the antidote will be given below. If you or a person you loved experienced internal bleeding while taking Pradaxa, you may be eligible for a Pradaxa Lawsuit. Call (800) 611-7080 to speak to Best Legal Source about the possibility of working with an attorney involved in the Pradaxa Lawsuit.
Pradaxa is made by the German manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim. They may be looking into making an antidote due to the number of Pradaxa Lawsuit cases filed because of these dangerous bleeding events. Pradaxa is an anticoagulant drug used to prevent strokes for those with atrial fibrillation. It is a popular drug prescribed for this usage with sales of $1 billion in a 12 month period. Most anticoagulant drugs cause some risk of internal bleeding; however, doctors generally have a reversal agent available to them in the case of an emergency. The antidote reportedly being made by Boehringer Ingelheim according to Reuters, may fit the need for this kind of treatment for Pradaxa.
This action may be overdue for those whose health was already compromised by Pradaxa or those who have lost a loved one to the effects of this drug. If you were harmed or a family member was fatally injured while taking Pradaxa, you may qualify for a Pradaxa Lawsuit. The Pradaxa Lawsuits are filed on the grounds that Boehringer Ingelheim did not properly warn about the possible risks of their drug. In addition, releases by the FDA, European Medicines Agency and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices all warned about the possible risk of fatal, internal and intestinal bleeding before the manufacturer acknowledged the possibility.
The Journal of Neurosurgery released information in an article that doctors have concerns about internal bleeding issues with Pradaxa because once it begins, there is little action that can be taken to stop it. Hopefully, the future antidote will assist new consumers of Pradaxa. If you have already suffered from these effects, there are options available to you. A Pradaxa Lawsuit may result in compensation for the suffering and medical expenses associated with internal bleeding.
