We at Sullo & Sullo, LLP believe our firm has achieved that level of excellence in reputation and experience.
The Dangers of Pradaxa (Dabigatran)
Although only on the market for a little over two years, Pradaxa (Dabigatran)—a drug which is used in those with heart valve problems or atrial fibrillation who also have elevated risks of stroke—is a thrombonin inhibitor which limits the amount a particular blood enzyme crucial to the blood clotting process. Boehringer Ingelheim, the manufacturer of the drug initially claimed Pradaxa (Dabigatran) was over 35% more effective in reducing the risk of stroke than its competitor Warfarin. Later it was found that while a negative reaction to Warfarin can be offset by administering vitamin K, a clotting agent, there is no antidote to excessive bleeding caused by Pradaxa (Dabigatran). Over 250 deaths have been directly linked to Pradaxa (Dabigatran), and although the drug has not yet been subject to recall by the FDA, it is believed that the family of a Tennessee woman has filed the first lawsuit against the makers of Pradaxa (Dabigatran).
