Pradaxa has been associated with hundreds of fatal bleeding events but its maker, Boehringer Ingelheim, promotes its latest drug as the new and improved alternative to warfarin—even though, for more than 50 years, warfarin has been the standard frontline therapy for people suffering from atrial fibrillation. And, unlike Pradaxa, the risks and benefits of warfarin have been rigorously studied and are well-understood by doctors and patients alike.

Common Health Problems Associated with Pradaxa
In our practice, we have helped injured people who've suffered varying kinds of adverse side effects from defective drugs. When it comes to Pradaxa, the adverse side effects can include major bleeding and heart attacks, leading to death.
While there is always some amount of risk in taking a pharmaceutical drug, hundreds of people have died after taking Pradaxa, which prompted an investigation by the FDA in 2011.
It bears repeating that despite the risks of taking Pradaxa over the more-well-understood warfarin, Boehringer Ingelheim continues to aggressively market Pradaxa.
