I started taking Pradaxa after ablation procedure. Have been taking it for two months Have experienced heartburn if I eat spicy or highly seasoned foods. Have used chewing gum (Juicy Fruit) after I eat and the heartburn disappears. Love this medication!!!

Comment:
I have been taking pradaxa only during an AFIB episode. It's effective in a couple hours, AFIB takes much longer to cause a clot, so why take it all the time, and incur any side effects, plus it's expensive.
