Pradaxa Blood Thinner Lawsuit

pradaxaA blood thinner used to prevent stroke in patients suffering from arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) when the cause is something other than a defective valve (such as hypertension heart disease), Pradaxa is the brand name for dabigatran.  Dabigatran is considered an alternative to warfarin (sold as Coumadin),  originally a type of rat poison that was first used on human patients in the 1950s to treat thrombosis  and embolism.

Dabigotran is classified as a “direct thrombin inhibitor.” It operates by preventing the enzyme responsible for blood clotting (thrombin) from functioning.

Pradaxa Litigation Information
