Pradaxa Constipation Causes and Reviews


Constipation means that a person has three or fewer bowel movements in a week. The stool can be hard and dry. Sometimes it is painful to pass. At one time or another, almost everyone gets constipated. In most cases, it lasts a short time and is not serious.

There are many things you can do to prevent Constipation. They include

  • Eating more fruits, vegetables and grains, which are high in fiber
  • Drinking plenty of water and other liquids
  • Getting enough exercise
  • Taking time to have a bowel movement when you need to
  • Using laxatives only if your doctor says you should
  • Asking your doctor if medicines you take may cause Constipation

It's not important that you have a bowel movement every day. If your bowel habits change, however, check with your doctor.

Pradaxa Constipation 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.
