Pradaxa (generic name: dabigatran) is used to help prevent blood clots and lower the risk of a stroke in people with atrial fibrillation (a heart rhythm disorder). This blood thinner has been associated with ulcers, severe internal bleeding, hemorrhaging and death.
Users of Pradaxa should consult their physician immediately if they are suffering from any of the following symptoms:
- Pink or brown urine
- Red or black stools (tar like)
- Severe or unexpected bleeding that will not stop
- Unusual bruising; red or purple pinpoint spots under your skin
- Coughing up or also, vomiting blood
- Joint pain or swelling
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Lastly, headaches, feeling dizzy or weak
As with most medications, patients should first speak with their physician before they stop taking Pradaxa or other prescribed drugs as doing so may result in serious health complications.
