When I saw this I had to read for myself and yes there is a risk involved, however I then went and performed some research of my own. There has apparently been no attempts to correlate the remarked upon incidents to actual use of the drug, also it's use is primarily upon cases wounded so severely that in previous wars they would not have survived leaving a severe lack of information to baseline whether secondary effects are abnormal for the condition. Which would tend to indicate that the danger is relatively marginal as a percentage. These soldiers are far more likely to bleed out on a rubble strewn alley or the wreckage of a vehicle somewhere if they don't get this medicine promptly.
But the side-effects are still possible and still dangerous and they should look for something with less risk. And I've found something very interesting that might take the place of this drug and seems both far less risky and easier to use as well.

This substance seems perfect for the military's needs and doesn't appear to have any of the problems that the current measure uses
