I am also taking pradaxa 150 mg x2 a day, when I started this med the cardio doc made me stop taking the aspirin and have not taken it since….I was told there is some interaction between aspirin and pradaxa and should not be mixed….
I would also say you could not replace pradaxa with aspirin…..
I just found a research in the internet saying that Aspirin 100 once a day is better than Pradaxa 150 in avoiding strokes. And I want to make sure is it ok to switch to Aspirin or not
of course you should consult with your doctor before making any changes to your meds, if you could post the link here for the information you found I would like to check it out.
All the studies I've seen show the new blood thinners are significantly better at reducing stroke risk than aspirin. I'd be interested in seeing the study you're referring to also.
Here is the link
Prof. Dr. Ashraf Fadel
It is an interesting read, deeper than I can discuss as the study is really about re occurring strokes, and I am not a doctor, you did not mention that you had a stroke involved, all that being said I have been on pradaxa for a year and half now, thankfully no problems at all. and it seems as though you have been on it for 4 years now,,,, my thoughts would be not to rock the boat and continue with you care plan for the last 4 years…..
Thanks, the study discussed the reoccurrence of stroke but thanks god I didn’t have any.
I can’t consult the doctor knows my case as i moved far from his country. I will prepare my medical history and check with another
