Pradaxa Internal Bleeding Side Effects

While Pradaxa was released to great enthusiasm, the potentially dangerous drug was soon found to carry a number of serious and potentially deadly side effects.  In comparison to patients who take warfarin, Pradaxa patients are at a 33% higher risk of suffering a heart attack or symptoms of heart disease.

In addition to the risk of heart problems, potential Pradaxa side effects also include:

  • Internal bleeding, including brain, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, and retinal hemorrhage
  • Joint pain and swelling
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Death

Since Pradaxa was released in 2010, there have been more than 260 reports of Pradaxa deaths filed around the world.  Many of these deaths were found to be attributed to Pradaxa internal bleeding.  If you or someone you love is currently taking Pradaxa to prevent blood clots, you should contact a doctor immediately if you notice any of these signs of Pradaxa internal bleeding:

  • Prolonged bleeding
  • Headaches
  • Stools that are red or black
  • Swelling
  • Joint pain
  • Dizziness or weakness
  • Vomit that is bloody or looks like coffee grounds
  • Pink or brown urine
