New Data on Pradaxa Bleeding Side Effects Draws Comment from Pradaxa Lawsuit Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC
Date:10/28/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 28, 2013

Reports of Pradaxa bleeding side effects continue to mount, according to the Pradaxa lawsuit lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC. As per the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices’ most recent QuarterWatch publication, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received 3,292 reports of Pradaxa side effects in 2012, more than any other drug it monitors. Most of the reports involved cases of Pradaxa bleeding, and more than 582 detailed fatalities among Pradaxa users.

According to Wright & Schulte LLC, the bleeding events reported by the ISMP echo allegations made in more than 1,600 Pradaxa lawsuits currently pending in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois. According to court documents, Boehringer Ingelheim is charged with failing to provide adequate warnings about the drug’s alleged dangers, especially the lack of an antidote for Pradaxa bleeding. The first trials in the Pradaxa litigation will get underway in August 2014. (IN RE: Pradaxa Product Liability Litigation, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois, MDL No. 2385)

As the ISMP’s QuarterWatch report points out, the FDA continues to maintain that Pradaxa is as safe as warfarin, a blood thinner that has been used for decades. But while either drug can cause episodes of serious internal bleeding, the administration of vitamin K can quickly bring warfarin bleeding to an end. According to the ISMP, warfarin was only named in 861 FDA adverse event reports in 2012, with 56 deaths. While 18% of Pradaxa adverse events resulted in a death, only 6.5% of warfarin events were fatal.

The ISMP was sharply critical of the FDA’s stance on Pradaxa: “The agency took several additional actions to reassure doctors and patients that growing number of adverse event reports did not signal an important risk,” the group states. “The FDA’s many actions to discount mounting safety concerns about anticoagulant adverse effects remain unexplained.”

Wright & Schulte LLC, which is already representing plaintiffs in Pradaxa lawsuits, shares many of the concerns raised by the ISMP analysis. The firm’s Pradaxa lawyers agree with the steps the ISMP outlined to improve Pradaxa safety, including:

  •     Reassessment of the current one-dose-fits-all strategy to prevent overdoses in vulnerable, older patients.
  •     More intensive monitoring of kidney function.
  •     Better information to alert physicians about managing the risks associated with a blood thinner that lacks an emergency antidote for serious bleeding.
