Pradaxa Dyspepsia Treatment

Chronic indigestion caused by Pradaxa

Dyspepsia is the medical term for indigestion and abdominal pain or discomfort. This can include gas, bloating, stomach pain and premature feelings of fullness. While dyspepsia is a common problem that usually dissipates on its own, frequent or chronic dyspepsia can be indicative of numerous serious conditions which have been linked to Pradaxa. The attorneys of the Phillips Law Offices fully understand the impact on quality of life these side effects can have on people taking Pradaxa. Dyspepsia treatment can also be expensive, time consuming and can carry its own additional side effects. We fight for these suffering individuals and their families to get them the compensation they deserve.

What dyspepsia can indicate in Pradaxa patients

Chronic dyspepsia is one of several Pradaxa side effects involving the GI tract. It can also be an indicator of other gastrointestinal disorders such as gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcers, gastritis and GI bleeds. If left untreated, some of these conditions can cause permanent damage and may elevate a person’s risk for stomach and other GI cancers.

Gastric-like symptoms by themselves can have a substantial adverse affect on your quality of life, even if they are not indicative of anotmayher underlying condition. Chronic dyspepsia can make it difficult to enjoy your favorite foods or drinks, can greatly restrict your diet and can lead to substantial unhealthy weight loss in serious cases. Moreover, the bloating and discomfort of Pradaxa stomach pain can make it difficult to engage in many of your favorite physical activities. Dyspepsia can also cause uncontrollable belching which can be embarrassing and can make social situations difficult and awkward.

Chronic dyspepsia is generally treated with medications such as antacids, H-2 receptor antagonists, proton pump inhibitors and prokinetics. These treatments carry their own side effects such as constipation, headaches, body aches, tiredness, depression and anxiety. Complications due to chronic dyspepsia can also require surgery in rare circumstances.
