Pradaxa Side Effects
Pradaxa (dabigatran) is a drug used to help prevent the risk of stroke and blood clots and is often prescribed to people with heart irregularities such as atrial fibrillation. The medication works by thinning the blood so that clots do not form. However, the FDA recently issued a report that some patients who had been taking Pradaxa suffered from serious side effects such as bleeding that could possibly end in death. The FDA has not yet issued a recall on the drug because they believe that the benefits outweigh the risks at this point, but this does not discount the number of Pradaxa-related injuries that is continuing to rise.
Many people experience mild side effects as a result of this drug such as heartburn and nausea, but others have displayed more serious ones. There have been reports of coughing up blood, heavy menstrual bleeding in women, dizziness and headache, difficulty breathing, swelling of the limbs, bleeding from the gums and nose and prolonged bleeding resulting from cuts. These side effects should not be ignored, so if you have taken a blood thinner such as Pradaxa, then you should contact a medical professional immediately for an examination.
