ALLEGATIONS RAISED IN ELIQUIS LAWSUITS
After twice delaying approval of the drug, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared Eliquis for the prevention of stroke and dangerous blood clots in patients diagnosed with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Eliquis was developed as an alternative to warfarin, which the FDA approved nearly 60 years ago. Although warfarin was once the go-to treatment for patients with atrial fibrillation, its safe use requires regular blood monitoring by doctors. Eliquis, among other “next generation” blood thinners, was developed so that patients would not require regular blood tests.
The most dangerous side effect for people who take Eliquis is uncontrollable internal bleeding; internal bleeding events linked to Eliquis use include fatal brain bleeds and stomach bleeds. While all blood thinners carry a risk of internal bleeding, Eliquis appears to carry a greater risk than was indicated on the warning label or communicated to prescribers. Eliquis was introduced as a blood thinner that was superior to warfarin because, unlike warfarin, it does not require its users to undergo blood testing or restrict their diet. However, while warfarin users who experience abnormal bleeding can counteract those side effects with Vitamin K, no antidote to Eliquis currently exists, which may pose a more serious risk for users of the medication. Eliquis manufacturers have not released information for doctors on how to treat bleeding complications, making it difficult for doctors to save patients suffering from them.
Individuals throughout the United States who experienced internal bleeding problems may be eligible to pursue an Eliquis lawsuit as a result of the drug manufacturers’ failure to warn about the risk of serious and potentially life-threatening side effects of Eliquis.
