On May 4, researchers at the 2012 Thrombosis and Hemotasis Summit of North America in Chicago
announced early data from a study which examined the health risks of alternative blood thinners. The review, sponsored by Alere Inc., found doctors removing patients from Pradaxa earlier and more often than Coumadin (warfarin) due to complications during treatment.
Coumadin has been used for decades as a blood thinner in patients suffering from atrial fibrillation to prevent blood clots and strokes, however, it requires frequent patient exams. The launch of Pradaxa in October 2010 began a wave of alternative anticoagulant drugs which claim to be safer or more effective.
The FDA warned in December, 2011 that it would launch an investigation into the safety of Pradaxa after receiving higher than expected reports of injury or death. Pradaxa lawyers are filing lawsuits for Pradaxa deaths.
Researchers in this study examined 2,200 patients taking an oral blood thinner. While only .88% of patients on warfarin experienced complications, the rate of complications with Pradaxa patients was a shocking 11.5%. Some of the side effects of Pradaxa patients included internal bleeding, heart attack, DVT, gastrointestinal problems and even death.
If someone you care for is showing signs of a brain bleed or unusual bleeding events and is on pradaxa get emergency medical help immediately.
