The FDA-approved blood thinner mediation Pradaxa is quickly becoming one of the leading stroke prevention therapies in the atrial fibrillation drug market. However, it has been reported that the risk of internal bleeding associated with Pradaxa is five (5) times higher than originally estimated.

Some symptoms of Pradaxa side effects include lethargy, unusual bruising or bleeding, hemorrhaging, pink or brown urine, red or black tarry stools, coughing up blood, vomiting that resembles blood or looks like coffee grounds, bleeding from the gums, frequent nosebleeds, joint pain or swelling, headaches, dizziness, weakness and swelling of the arms, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs, and in some cases, death.

If you or a loved one has experienced serious side effects after taking Pradaxa, you can contact Stark & Stark and speak to one of the Mass Tort attorneys, free of charge, who can help assess any claims that you might have against Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
