Comment:
I have been on Pradaxa 150 mg x 2 daily since August 2011 for A-fib. My cardiologist tried other methods to thin my blood that were not successful, so I reluctantly started on Pradaxa. I have not felt very well from the point of stomach problems since Day 1. My face, neck and shoulders became beet red, but 3 doctors blamed it on something other than Pradaxa.

After taking my first daily dose (150mg BID), I developed severe itching and redness of skin on my arms, neck and back. Since this occured on a week-end, I have not been able to contact my cardiologist for further instructions. Meanwhile,I am holding future doses.

Comment:
don't know if it is working so my answer above (effectiveness) is only a guess. the toughest side effect is the difficult heart burn and acid reflex. it can last for over 24 hours. i noticed it happens more at night after i go to bed after i take a pill especially if i don't drink a quart of water. anybody else having similar problem?

Comment:
Made me very ill with extreme dizziness upon rising in morning and at times throughout day with nausea. Told by Dr. to take Meclizine and Zantac for symptoms. WHY? I was already sick. Discontinued on my own; can't live with these symptoms with what I have to do daily.
