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.

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.

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

Have used for 5 years. NO side effects that I notice. Saves from having to get monthly blood checks.
