New York, New York (PRWEB) March 31, 2012
In December of 2011, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety announcement, “evaluating post-marketing reports of serious bleeding events in patients taking Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate mesylate). Pradaxa is a blood thinning (anticoagulant) medication used to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common type of heart rhythm abnormality.”
According to an FDA podcast released 12/7/2011 the FDA is studying reports that there have allegedly been hundreds of reports of severe side effects linked to Pradaxa usage, especially in the elderly. The side effects of Pradaxa are alleged to include severe bleeding that may result in a heart attack, stroke, death, brain hemorrhage, gastrointestinal bleeding, kidney bleeding, and many other severe bleeding episodes. These bleeding events may be of significance, especially if the Pradaxa drug exacerbates the underlying condition and doesn’t allow the body to stop bleeding. In some cases, the Pradaxa bleeding may result in a life altering event or unfortunately, death. Still, the FDA has not made any determinations yet about the future of this product other than issuing other cautionary statements to physicians.
