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.
