Pradaxa -- Deadly Side Effects

Side effects and complications are common with many prescribed medicines; however, safety is a great concern when the side effects of the drugs may cause more harm than benefits. Although serious side effects are rare, they are important to consider prior to using any form of medication. One such medicine, Pradaxa, medically known as dabigatran etexilate mesylate, was created and distributed by doctors to mitigate the probability of having a stroke or developing a blood clot by acting as a blood thinning agent. Serious side effects caused by taking the prescribed dosage of pradaxa may include, but are not limited to: -Dizziness

-The feeling of being faint

-Discolored urine and stool

-Constant bruising

-Excessive and uncontrollable bleeding

-Swelling and joint pains
