Some important considerations you’ll want to discuss with your doctor

Because PRADAXA is available only by prescription, the decision to prescribe it is made by a healthcare professional after discussing a range of important considerations with the individual patient. These considerations include both the risks and benefits of PRADAXA, and any other conditions you may have or other medications you may be taking. When taking PRADAXA, you should be aware of possible serious side effects. Click on the links below as you read to learn more.

Be sure to tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or does not go away.

These are not all of the possible side effects of PRADAXA. For more information, ask your doctor or pharmacist and be sure to also access the Medication Guide.

Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
