As many patients know all too well, dangerous drugs can be found throughout health care. They may have risks, but their benefits are well known, too. Together, patients and doctors balance risk and reward when considering treatment options. The patient may assume some significant risks, but they do it with their eyes wide open.
Pradaxa, a widely prescribed blood thinner, is different. Like other medications, it’s a dangerous drug. However, unlike most risky drugs, many patients and patient advocates believe that the makers of Pradaxa failed to fully communicate its risks. As a result, patients and doctors weren’t able to make the careful risk-reward calculation that a full disclosure of risks would have made possible.
The side effects and harms of Pradaxa can be significant. Some patients have encountered intense intestinal bleeding, even after only a few weeks of treatments. Have you experienced harm, too? If the answer is yes, you may consider talking to the professionals and attorneys at the Dallas law firm of Fears Nachawati.
