Pradaxa, which is generically known as Dabigatran, is an anticoagulant, or blood-thinner, developed by Boehringer Ingelheim. It is generally used to prevent stokes in patients who have artrial fibrillation because of non-heart valve causes.
Pradaxa, like many other blood thinners, has some very serious side effects. The most common of which is gastrointestinal upset, but some patients experience severe internal bleeding. Some other Pradaxa side effects include a greater probability of experiencing a heart attack and increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding.
A more complete list of Pradaxa adverse effects can be found below:
- Gastrointestinal Upset
- Increased risk of Heart Attack
- Bloody Vomit
- Joint Pain or Swelling
- Internal Bleeding
- Coughing up Blood
- Strangely Colored Urine and Stool
- Bleeding from Gums
In New Zealand there have been cases of deaths of patients taking Pradaxa. The elderly patients died of internal bleeding. There have also been many reports of non-lethal internal bleeding and hemorrhaging. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to resverse the blood-thinning effects of Pradaxa, and once they start causing serious health problems, these are harder to treat than those caused by similar drugs.
