The Latest Surrounding Pradaxa Lawsuits

Comments (1)

We have previously discussed the question that many are asking right now: “Why did the FDA rush to approve Pradaxa?” With reports from the Journal for The American Medical Association warning that the FDA overlooked Pradaxa internal bleeding and its severe side effects, our Pradaxa injury lawyers are mystified why this drug ever was given to patients in the first place.

What’s even more disturbing is that Pradaxa is still available on the market - even after it’s been estimated that prescription drug complaints to the FDA have increased over the last four years by 90 percent. According to an October report issued by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices’ QuarterWatch, Pradaxa and Chantix make up 37 percent of this increase. And Pradaxa is responsible for 542 deaths and 3,781 cases of side effects that have been reported to the FDA.

Since federal Judge David Herndon announced that Pradaxa victims can proceed with their lawsuits, victims who have been injured by this dangerous drug or who have lost a spouse or a loved one from internal bleeding are urged to talk with an attorney to learn about their legal options.

Questionable , FDA is all over case's of side effects and the safety of energy supplements & drinks, but not with a drug they approved.( Pradaxa ) which in many reports has taken many lives and thousands of side effects reported to FDA. Yet they keep defending the drug. This is a drug with no known antidote and which causes serious bleeds that even Doctors admit they can do little to stop once a bleed occurs in the patient taking Pradaxa. This must make one stop wonder how the FDA prioritizes their concerns about products.
