Side Effects And Complications Of Pradaxa

Pradaxa is a blood thinner, or anticoagulant, that is prescribed to prevent strokes in patients who may be prone to them. However, although the drug was approved by the Food and Drug Administration before it became widely available, reports of serious and life-threatening complications such as internal bleeding and hemorrhaging prompted the FDA to launch an investigation into the drug in 2011.

If you take Pradaxa and experience any symptoms of internal bleeding, see your doctor immediately. Without treatment, internal bleeding and hemorrhaging can be fatal. Symptoms may include:

  • Discolored pink or brown urine
  • Discolored red or black stool
  • Joint pain or swollen joints

  • Extended bleeding, including nosebleeds or coughing up blood
  • Bleeding gums
  • Lethargy
