In my comment (211) yeserday, I mentioned that I found it difficult to believe the written document supplied with pradaxa. I queried the manufacturer and am now convinced that I was wrong. The capsules supplied are very sensitive to moisture.

Comment:
I have just started yesterday with Pradaxa, but NOTE the printed instructions issued with the Pradaxa are confusing. Apparently, it is now being issued in Capsule form.

So it is not allowed to be added to the Dosette boxes, even t ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on Pradaxa for 2-1/2 years. A nice change from the inconvenience of Coumadin. But...I sometimes noticed that after taking it I would feel like it was "stuck" in my throat. What I have just recently learned is that it has given me a bad case of ACID REFLUX! Diagnosed by an ENT! I changed meds and the acid reflux has stopped....hopefully forever!

Comment:
I haven't had as Stroke yet in the 2 and 1/2 years of taking it,but I've had A-fib since I was 15 and am 63 now. That means a went 45 years w/A-fib and DIDN'T have a stroke.So now I'm told that it is imperative that I take Pradaxa and sotalol. Bottom line is $300 plus per month for the Pradaxa. And yes any MD's, I still drink beer too and I don't care. I'd rather enjo ... Show Full Comment
