For drug manufacturers, it is important to disclaim the risks of a medical device or product. Sadly, however, the drug maker Boehringer Ingelheim may have failed to appropriately warn consumers and health professionals of the risks of one drug in particular, Pradaxa.
Pradaxa, a popular and widely prescribed blood thinner, is supposed to help prevent the blood clots that result in potentially lethal or catastrophic strokes. Although it may succeed in achieving this goal for many patients, it does so at significant, undisclosed cost: Pradaxa’s risk of heart disease is 33 percent higher than Coumadin, an alternative medication used as a blood thinner. All told, more than 4,000 patients have reported experiencing health conditions associated with Pradaxa’s side effects, including hemorrhage and death.
