Montana Pradaxa Side Effects Attorneys

Pradaxa® is a blood thinner approved to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the fall of 2010, Pradaxa® is prescribed to replace traditional blood-thinning medications such as Warfarin.

Montana patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation are at an increased risk of stroke due to their heart arrhythmia, which can lead to a cardioembolic stroke. Pradaxa® works by inhibiting the actions of thrombin, a naturally occurring protein, which helps prevent the blood clots from forming.

But it wasn’t long before Pradaxa® became connected to incidents of internal bleeding, hemorrhaging, gastrointestinal issues and an increased risk of heart attack.

If you or someone you love has taken Pradaxa® and is has experienced adverse side effects, it is important to talk to a Montana Pradaxa® injury attorney, who can help you fight to recover the compensation you deserve.

Dangers of Yaz®/Yasmin

Yaz® and Yasmin® are oral birth control pills that prevent ovulation in women. Should an egg become fertilized, these contraceptives prompt a change in the physiological structure of your reproductive system and make it impossible for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterine wall.

These attributes made Yaz®/Yasmin® a huge success when the contraceptives were first introduced. The active ingredients drospirenone (synthetic progestin) and ethinylestradiol (synthetic estrogen) were praised for the drug’s success. However, these ingredients ultimately caused a variety of adverse side effects, and even some fatalities.

If you have suffered an injury from these contraceptives, contact a Montana Yaz®/Yasmin® injury attorney to learn about your options.

Side effects associated with Yaz®/Yasmin® include:

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Stroke
  • Cardiac arrhythmia and heart attacks
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Kidney failure
  • Gallbladder disease

In recent years, several lawsuits have been filed against Bayer, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, by women who have suffered from the life-threatening side-effects after using Yaz®/Yasmin®.

If you live in Montana and have been hurt by these birth control pills, contact a Montana Yaz®/Yasmin® injury attorney at 1-877-LOSS-RECOVER (567-7732) so you can get the money you deserve.
