Corpus Christi Pradaxa Lawyer

As a Corpus Christi Pradaxa lawyer, I am aware of the many complications with this medication.  Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate) was approved by the Food & Drug Administration as a medication for reducing the risk of stroke in persons who experience non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Pradaxa is a prescription blood thinner which was made to reduce the risk of blood clots and strokes. Pradaxa interferes with thrombin, which is the body’s main clotting agent, and thus prevents blood clot formation. Pradaxa is given to patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib) which is not caused by heart valve problems.
