What is Pradaxa?
Pradaxa, also known as dabigatran etexilate, is a drug prescribed to prevent individuals from suffering a stroke and blood clots in patients with abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation). However, even though it has been known to be an effective drug in preventing blood clots, in recent years there have been a number of studies that reported several users suffering from catastrophic bleeding.

Internal bleeding is one of the most dangerous side effects of Pradaxa. In fact, the drug manufacturer of Pradaxa, Boehringer Ingelheim, reported that there have been 260 reported deaths linked to the prescription drug, and in December of 2011, the FDA announced that they were reviewing reports of bleeding injuries associated with Pradaxa.

In fact, Boehringer Ingelheim, knew that taking the prescribed drug left a possible risk of patients seriously bleeding, however failed to warn individuals of the defective and dangerous nature of the drug.
