For people whose heart’s upper chambers don’t beat at the same time as the lower chambers, medication is needed to limit blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks. But what if the medication these patients were taking actually did more harm than good?
Many people taking Pradaxa for the above mentioned reasons have experienced internal bleeding that has led to their deaths. If you are taking Pradaxa, you may also be at risk for potentially fatal health problems due to the risks of bleeding complications.
Signs of internal bleeding could include:
- Bruises that suddenly appear without a cause
- Bruises that continue to get larger
- Coughing up or vomiting blood
- Red or black stools
- Pink or brown urine
Although this list is not comprehensive, it does indicate some of the most common signs of internal bleeding. If you have any of these symptoms, it is critical that you see your doctor or go to the emergency room as soon as possible.
If you have suffered an injury while taking Pradaxa, or if your family member died while taking Pradaxa, it is critical that you file a dangerous drug claim against the drug maker and talk with a skilled Pradaxa claim attorney for help filing a claim and seeking damages.
