Xarelto & Pradaxa
Anticoagulant drugs are prescribed to reduce blood clots that can cause
heart attacks, stroke, or cardiovascular problems.
In recent years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved
three new anticoagulants under the brand names Eliquis, Pradaxa, and Xarelto.
Eliquis, Pradaxa, and Xarelto are linked to an increased risk of severe
bleeding. Sadly, Eliquis and Xarelto contain no counteracting agents to
stop severe bleeding once it begins. This may lead to severe injuries
or even death. A look at the histories of each drug reveals:
- Pradaxa was approved by the FDA in 2010. It is used to reduce stroke risk
in patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AFib). The FDA later revealed patients
65 and older on Pradaxa faced a higher risk of gastrointestinal bleeding
than patients taking warfarin.
- Xarelto was approved by the FDA in 2011. It can triple the risk of major
bleeding among patients suffering from Acute Coronary Syndrome and double
the risk of severe bleeding in patients undergoing hip surgery. Xarelto
may also increase the risk of blood clots or stroke.
- Eliquis—approved later than both Pradaxa and Xarelto—presents
many of the same severe bleeding risks. In addition, patients taking Eliquis
may suffer an increased risk of blood clots, brain bleeding, gastrointestinal
bleeding, and bleeding in the skull.
