Pradaxa, as a blood thinner, is often recommended by physicians treating patients withatrial fibrillation, or A-fib. Doctors attempt to treat a cardiac arrhythmia by thinning the consistency of the blood. As a side effect of attempting to reduce the possibility of stroke, pradaxa may cause serious internal bleeding and in rare cases, death.
Patients who have a mechanical heart valve should not take Pradaxa and should speak with their physician about different options. If taking Pradaxa under the previous condition, stop immediately and seek medical assistance.
