What is Pradaxa?


Information Provided by a Mississippi Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Pradaxa is a blood thinning medication that is used to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, the most common type of heart rhythm abnormality. Currently the FDA is reviewing Pradaxa, due to the heightened number of internal bleeding deaths, which have become more common than originally expected. Once internal bleeding begins, in a patient on Pradaxa, the doctors have no dependable method for stopping the bleeding; therefore, causing severe internal damage and possible death.
