    In my comment (211) yeserday, I mentioned that I found it difficult to believe the written document supplied with pradaxa. I queried the manufacturer and am now convinced that I was wrong. The capsules supplied are very sensitive to moisture.

    I have just started yesterday with Pradaxa, but NOTE the printed instructions issued with the Pradaxa are confusing. Apparently, it is now being issued in Capsule form. However the reprinted version of the unpacking instructions are still based on the Pellets form. All the reprinting did was to change the wording from Pellet to Capsule. So it is not allowed to be added to the Dosette boxes, even t ... Show Full Comment

    I was on Pradaxa for 2-1/2 years. A nice change from the inconvenience of Coumadin. But...I sometimes noticed that after taking it I would feel like it was "stuck" in my throat. What I have just recently learned is that it has given me a bad case of ACID REFLUX! Diagnosed by an ENT! I changed meds and the acid reflux has stopped....hopefully forever!

    So far t his drug has worked better for me than warafin. If you're just now prescibed this drug ask your MD for the "pradaxa savings card" or go the webiste of the manufacturer to get one and your co-pay will go down to about $30. a month.

    I haven't had as Stroke yet in the 2 and 1/2 years of taking it,but I've had A-fib since I was 15 and am 63 now. That means a went 45 years w/A-fib and DIDN'T have a stroke.So now I'm told that it is imperative that I take Pradaxa and sotalol. Bottom line is $300 plus per month for the Pradaxa. And yes any MD's, I still drink beer too and I don't care. I'd rather enjo ... Show Full Comment
