Just diagnosed with afib and have been taking Pradaxa for about a month. So far, no side effects, no issues. I was told this drug does have an antidote, unlike the other 2 newer blood thinners that are mostly recommended to replace Warfarin. This was important to me, so am taking this drug for that reason. If you have problems opening the blister pack, take a minute to examine the individual pouch, see the end with a place that indicates to fold that part over and tear at the center of the Fold? That's how to open the blister. If you read all the instructions and precautions, you would know how to open the blister pack as well as being better informed about the drug. My only issue is the cost, as I already take several expensive drugs and fall into the "doughnut hole" pretty early each year on medicare.

I got AF and that's when my doctor took me off aspirin 325 and put me on Pradaxa.

My blood became so thin, I had to have three units of blood by IV trnsfusion. I had been on this drug for seven years. I recommend having your hematocrit checked at least every three months, if not oftener. Mine got down to 14.7.

Just received my prescription from the Doctor. Not familiar with the treatment yet. Someone please tell me how do you get the pill out of the blister pack. My wife a half hour then we had to cut the pill out. not safe.

Stomach hasn't been right since starting it a year ago. Never had reflux before starting it. I'm always tired and after workouts my muscles ache for days...Trying to get off of it and back a Warfarin, but Doctor's unsure of how to stop Pradaxa when starting Warfarin... He believes I need a two day overlap, but he can't find the answer any where... Help?

I just started taking Pradaxa because of Afib. The blister packaging is impossible to open without using scissors! I canâ??t comment yet on its effectiveness. Mild side affects so far.

Took drug for DVT. Not everytime but about every 10 days dose would cause debilitating heartburn. Always felt a bit nauseous. Never had diarrhea, but bowl movements increased like 6 times a day. Finally straw was substantial rectal bleeding. This was only drug the insurance company would pay for dumped the insurance and this drug. Now on eliquis.
