Pradaxa

PradaxaTM has been linked to excessive internal bleeding and heart attacks. In January of 2012, the manufacturer of Pradaxa confirmed at least 260 deaths.

Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) should not stop taking Pradaxa before speaking with their healthcare professionals. Stopping use of blood thinning medication can increase the risk of strokes.

FDA Investigation
In October 2010 the FDA approved Pradaxa to help prevent strokes in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. The FDA is now investigating reports of potentially fatal bleeding events and deaths in patients taking Pradaxa.
