Pradaxa Atrial Fibrillation Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the speed or rhythm of the heartbeat. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia. The cause is a disorder in the heart's electrical system.

Often, people who have AF may not even feel symptoms. But you may feel

  • Palpitations -- an abnormal rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness or difficulty exercising
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion

AF can lead to an increased risk of stroke. In many patients, it can also cause chest pain, heart attack, or heart failure.

Doctors diagnose AF using family and medical history, a physical exam, and a test called an electrocardiogram (EKG), which looks at the electrical waves your heart makes. Treatments include medicines and procedures to restore normal rhythm.

Pradaxa Atrial Fibrillation Reviews

Thu, 05 Apr 2012

I was put on Pradaxa because I have Atrial Fibrillation and now a seizure disorder. My Doctor thought the Pradaxa might better manage my INR so took me off warfarin and onto Pradaxa. After about 7 days... I woke up in terrible pain (abdominal) and my skin was dark purple. They raced me into surgery for exporatory abdominal surgery. That was 4 months ago. I am back on warfarin but now suffer from extreme diarhea alternating with extreme constipation... and still have abdominal pain - for which I am now taking Dicetel. I have been on disability for 4 months now. I am still not pain free, can not eat... have lost 50 pounds (in 4 months), have extreme fatigue and sometimes confusion. When I was in the hospital I had extreme halucinations and now suffer from claustophobia. This has been a nightmare. If your doctor suggests Pradaxa, be cautious. I was out of town up north when it happened and it took me 3 hours to get back to the hospital. I was lucky.
