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!

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.

I don't think I have any issues with this drug other than it has no antidote. It's easy to take and part form a bit of reflux which I take nexium for I do get a lot of aches and pains but I take other meds that can cause this. Overall I think it has to better than warfarin. Just hope they can work on an antidote in case of bleeding.
