Pradaxa Side Effect Problems Continue, as New Report Finds Pradaxa Bleeding More Likely to Result in Death, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:1/19/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2013

Pradaxa side effects continue to be reported to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to the latest QuarterWatch Report issued by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices (ISMP), an analysis of hemorrhage cases reported to the FDA during the second quarter of 2012 found that Pradaxa bleeding is 5 times more likely to result in death compared to warfarin bleeding. The estimate of higher odds for a fatal outcome persisted after adjusting for differences in patient age, gender, and report source, the ISMP said.*

“We continue to hear from Pradaxa patients who experienced frightening episodes of bleeding while using this blood thinner. Considering that there is no readily available antidote for Pradaxa bleeding, we are not surprised by the ISMP’s findings,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The firm is currently offering free Pradaxa lawsuit evaluations to individuals who suffered life-threatening hemorrhaging, allegedly due to Pradaxa.

Pradaxa Lawsuits
Pradaxa, which is used to prevent strokes in people with a heart-rhythm disorder known as atrial fibrillation, was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2010. According to a recent report from Bloomberg.com, regulators in several countries have issued Pradaxa safety alerts since the drug was first brought to market.** Most recently, the FDA released a Drug Safety Communication announcing a new contraindication was being added to the Pradaxa label to warn against its use in patients with mechanical heart valves.***

At least 176 Pradaxa lawsuits have been consolidated in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois. The complaints allege plaintiffs suffered serious, life-threatening episodes of Pradaxa bleeding, and that Boehringer Ingelheim sold the blood thinner despite knowing it could cause fatal bleeding in some patients. According to court documents, the Pradaxa litigation’s first trial has been scheduled for August 2014. (In Re: Pradaxa (Dabigatran Etexilate) Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2385)

Victims of serious Pradaxa bleeding may be eligible to collect compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. To learn more, please visit the firm’s Pradaxa lawsuit website, or call 1-877-779-1414 to speak with an attorney today.
