Pradaxa Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage Causes and Reviews


Your digestive or gastrointestinal (GI) tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine or colon, rectum, and anus. Bleeding can come from any of these areas. The amount of bleeding can be so small that only a lab test can find it.

Signs of bleeding in the digestive tract depend where it is and how much bleeding there is.

Signs of bleeding in the upper digestive tract include

  • Bright red blood in vomit
  • Vomit that looks like coffee grounds
  • Black or tarry stool
  • Dark blood mixed with stool

Signs of bleeding in the lower digestive tract include

  • Black or tarry stool
  • Dark blood mixed with stool
  • Stool mixed or coated with bright red blood

GI bleeding is not a disease, but a symptom of a disease. There are many possible causes of GI bleeding, including hemorrhoids, peptic ulcers, tears or inflammation in the esophagus, diverticulosis and diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, colonic polyps, or cancer in the colon, stomach or esophagus.

The test used most often to look for the cause of GI bleeding is called endoscopy. It uses a flexible instrument inserted through the mouth or rectum to view the inside of the GI tract. A type of endoscopy called colonoscopy looks at the large intestine.

Pradaxa Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage Reviews

Fri, 14 Jan 2011

I am experiencing severe heartburn, even when taking Nexium twice a day and using antacids, such a Tums. Never have experienced this level of discomfort when taking a prescription medicine.
Not sure in the long term I can continue with this drug. It will be a disppointment as I disliked taking Coumidin because of the uncertainty and diet problems.

Mild stomach discomfort. Frequent bad tasting burping.

Wed, 06 Apr 2011

68 year old male. I have been taking Pradaxa for two months. I have had a very significant increase in my blood pressure. After exercise my BP goes down, but in mid afternoon it can get very high. anyone else notice BP changes?

Tue, 14 Jun 2011

Hospital 1 week after starting with unknown stomach pain. Sleeping now 4 weeks and unable to work or wakeup. Can't concentrate at all. Now mental problems. My wife afraid of me now and stopped the new drug 2 days ago. Some better first day. Maybe don't know yet if I will get back to normal or not.

Sat, 02 Jul 2011

i;ve woken up to bad leg pain, would hurt no matter where or how I laid, 7 days in a row, its happened. hip feels like it wants to come apart at times. only on right side. my drs. say its not Pradaxa with out even looking at me. where to next ????

Mon, 05 Mar 2012

right after taking Pradaxa i started have eye migrains and i have a history of having them but olny a few the last ten years. now i have them every week or ten days

Sat, 28 Apr 2012

I personally switched my 81 year old mother from Pradaxa 150 MG to Pradaxa 75 MG with Dr.'s approval after she experienced severe stomach pains. It has helped a lot. I've also read that 75 years and older patients are prescribed 110 MG in other countries. It seems that Dr.'s in the U.S. are pushing the 150 MG across the board for some reason; when I would hope that their well informed about global recommendations, even though the 110 MG still might be too much.
What bothers me about this blog is that the vast majority of patients only mention that they are taking the medicine Pradaxa, but fail to tell us the MG. How are we supposed to form an knowlegeable opinion about each other's experiences if we don't know the MG and dose of Pradaxa you are taking?

Thu, 24 May 2012

Started 150mg, 2/day, year ago. Severe pelvic pain, gastric distress blood in urine were primary side effects. Discovered eating high alkaline foods with
pills Greatly reduced symptoms. Cantaloupe works best. Dried raisins and bananas will suffice in a pinch. Age 74, a-fib. Now have diverticulitis. Dr. not really interested.
