According to the report from the Judicial Panel on MultiDistrict Litigation the number of Pradaxa cases filed in federal court involving internal bleeding has increased from an estimated one hundred to one hundred and fifty-one. This most recent report was issued on November 14, 2012.
The report comes during a time when researchers have been disagreeing about the drug’s safety. According to The Journal for The American Medical Association warning on September 3, 2012, the association feels that the Food and Drug Administration may have rushed the approval of Pradaxa and overlooked major side effects such as internal bleeding. However, in a study performed by Food and Drug Administration on November 4, 2012, they state that for now Pradaxa has the same risks as other blood thinning medications.
A report released by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices’ QuarterWatch on October 3, 2012 estimates that the complaints to the Food and Drug Administration concerning Pradaxa have increased by ninety percent in four years. The concern over Pradaxa internal bleeding risk is that once the bleeding starts there is little that can be done to stop it, according to doctors’ on November 6, 2012.
