Pradaxa is a blood thinner that the FDA approved in 2010. It was prescribed to patients with irregular heartbeats that had potential to cause blood clots. However, Pradaxa does not require rigid blood monitoring. Since the drug's approval, it has been linked to multitudes of unfavorable problems and over 1,000 fatalities. In May 2014, Boehringer Ingelheim agreed to pay $650 million to settle all of its 4,000 lawsuits. Pradaxa caused some users to have severe and uncontrollable bleeding events and the manufacturers did not develop an antibody until Oct. 2015.
