Check the Signs
If you suffer from increased risk of blood clots, deep vein thrombosis or atrial fibrillation (afib), worries over your medication, blood level testing and regular doctor visits can be a constant concern. But even as new anticoagulant drugs such as Xarelto® enter the market with the promise of easing or even eliminating these worries, it’s important to note that a number of new blood thinner medications have been associated with several severe health concerns. Symptoms may include: pulmonary embolism, severe, uncontrolled bleeding requiring hospitalization, stroke and death.
Pradaxa, a blood-thinner made by manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim, for patients suffering from non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), was marketed as not requiring regular blood level monitoring, as with warfarin, and was instead prescribed in fixed dose regimens. In December 2011, the FDA released a safety announcement regarding reports of serious bleeding events in patients taking Pradaxa. Symptoms include: bleeding that is severe or uncontrollable, bruises that happen without a known cause or that get larger, coughing up blood or blood clots, and menstrual or vaginal bleeding that is heavier than normal.
Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filters
IVC Filter models, such as the Bard Recovery Filter, the Bard G2 Filter and the Bard G2 Express Filters have been in use since 1979. Through the years, there have been numerous reports and studies that have shown that IVC Filters have disintegrated, breaking into smaller fragments. When this happens, the small, metal fragments can migrate through the bloodstream to the brain, heart, and lungs, causing life-threatening injuries, severe complications and even death. If you have undergone implantation of an IVC filter, you should call our attorneys to discuss your rights. Symptoms include: chest and neck pain, nausea, shortness of breath, heart beat irregularities, confusion and dizziness.
Proton Pump Inhibitors
Proton Pump Inhibitors such as Prilosec, Nexium and Prevacid may increase the risk of chronic kidney failure. If you or a loved one suffered kidney failure or have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease after daily use of the prescription strength Prilosec or Nexium, or over the counter Prilosec or Nexium (Brand-name only) you may be eligible for compensation. These heartburn drugs have also been linked to an increased risk of fractures to the hip, wrist and spine. Symptoms include: fluid retention, high blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythm, electrolyte imbalance, fatigue or itching, fluid in the lungs, heart failure and bone fracture.
