Dabigatran works by binding to thrombin in the clotting process described above and blocking its action. This stops the formation of fibrin, the essential component of blood clots. Dabigatran can therefore prevent blood clots from developing.

Side effects:

Pradaxa is used to stop blood clotting, so most side effects are commonly associated with signs of bruising or bleeding. In some cases, significant bleeding events may occur regardless of the bleeding site. Therefore, contact a doctor or healthcare provider immediately if you experience bleeding that doesn’t resolve spontaneously or signs of massive bleeding that include unusual weakness, tiredness, dizziness, unexpected swelling, headaches, and pallor.  

In addition, contact a doctor or healthcare provider if you experience a severe allergic reaction to the medication. Signs may be difficulty breathing or dizziness.

Side effects vary according to the reason for treatment with Pradaxa.

Pradaxa may be prescribed for the following reasons:

  • Prevention of thrombosis in blood vessels after knee or hip replacement surgery
  • Prevention of stroke or systemic embolism in patients with irregular heartbeats
  • Treatment of blood clotting and recurring thrombosis prevention in leg veins and pulmonary blood vessels

The dose and amount of time that Pradaxa should be taken varies depending on the reason for treatment, age, other medications being taken, and other factors that should be discussed with the prescribing doctor.

Pradaxa can be taken regardless of meal time. It should be taken whole with a glass of water to ensure it reaches the stomach.

  • Q: Which is safer Eliquis or Pradaxa?
    While side effects are similar in both medications, it very much depends on several factors relating to the patient’s health, any other medications that may be taken, and pregnancy. Each of these factors will impact the decision to take Eliquis or Pradaxa. Consult a doctor or healthcare provider before taking any medication to make sure you get the best treatment for your unique needs.
  • What is the drug Pradaxa used for?
    Pradaxa is a blood thinner used to help prevent blood clotting in the veins after knee or hip replacement surgery, thrombosis in the leg, and pulmonary blood vessels. It is also used to help prevent stroke and systemic embolism in patients with irregular heartbeats.
  • What to avoid while taking Pradaxa?
    Avoid medications that can slow blood clotting and cause bleeding or bruising while taking Pradaxa. Avoiding any other ‘blood thinners’ is also advised. For a full list of medications to avoid, see the product insert and consult a doctor before use.
  • How long can you stay on Pradaxa?
    Pradaxa should be taken as prescribed by a doctor. It is usually prescribed for a short period as a post-surgery anti-blood clotting treatment. However, it can be prescribed for the prevention of stroke or treatment of blood clots in leg veins and pulmonary blood vessels long-term.
