Just a FYI, I see the mention in most all conversations here the loose term that " the watchman prevents blood clots" which is true, however IT DOES NOT HELP OR PREVENT BLOOD CLOTS IN THE REST OF YOUR BODY, ONLY IN YOUR HEART. just something to think about.

Dec 6, 2019 · Flutter - Pradaxa vs. Aspirin in Heart Rhythm Conditions

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…..

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….
