    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.

    My third day on it just out of hosp. for 140+ pulse rate and diagnosed with A flutter. Suggested it to doc from TV commercial to avoid coumadin test etc. Level must really be kickingin as I feel awful. Shaky, dizzy - strange heart rate -no energy or maybe it is because I am also new on to Cardizem. Age 70. All this is new to me. Help.

    Decreased urine stream, itching arms, feeling like something stuck in my throat, and hemorids. Back to coumadin and those symptoms are gone.
