    I guess it's effective..I haven't had a stroke yet. Really bad Tinnitis though.Been on it for six months now. I understand that if your bleeding internally your a goner they have no way to stop the bleeding....so far!!

    Never been so sick....Headaches, back pain, sweating, nausea, weakness, heart burn, indigestion. This can't be good for you.

    Terrible heartburn and Indigestion, blood in my stool. Back pain, headache, had one episode of sweats, weakness, dizzy, and all over illness. I don't think this is working for me.

    Been on Pradaxa for 6 months. Was taking at breakfast and at bedtime. Often experienced bad heartburn which lasted 24-48 hrs. Now taking 2nd dose with dinner or with snack later at night. Will skip 2nd dose rather than take before bedtime. Have not had heartburn issues in several weeks.

    70 year old male with 3 open heart surgeries (13 bypasses) developed A fib. So far no problems with this drug - which keeps me off of cumidin.
