Why is There No Recall Due to Pradaxa Side Effects?
By John Curran
Imagine a car salesperson telling a buyer, "There's a chance that the car's gas tank will rupture, and the only way to make it keep working would be to run a hose from the hole to the gas cap." No one would expect the dealership to make any money, but thankfully for Boehringer Ingelheim, prescription drug users don't work that way. Pradaxa internal bleeding side effects can last for the rest of someone's life.
Pradaxa is used as a blood thinner, and the company trumpeted the fact that blood levels didn't need to be monitored or that users had to change their diet, which is required with warfarin (Coumadin). Some Pradaxa brain hemorrhage and other side effects might be concerning to patients considering the medication. That's especially true as their Pradaxa internal bleeding class action lawsuit lawyers are arguing the company failed to warn people of the risks.
Currently, if someone suffers from Pradaxa internal bleeding side effects, there is no cure. Unfortunately, they are forced to stay on kidney dialysis forever, and are still at risk for hemorrhaging and heart attacks as the body tries to cope with Pradaxa side effects. And yet, the FDA refuses to offer a Pradaxa recall in spite of the myriad risks that patients face.
It's one reason why many doctors who are treating patients for heart attack or stroke risks have opted to stick with warfarin for use as an anticoagulant. Even though it was first used about 60 years ago, the risk of problems similar to Pradaxa hemorrhaging side effects is much less. Simple potassium can counteract bleeding from warfarin, although there is a fine line between treating bleeding and worsening the problem. As noted above, diet is an issue, but at the same time healthcare professionals have had decades to understand the risks of warfarin and work patients to reduce them.
