Pradaxa Ischaemic Stroke Causes and Reviews


A stroke is a medical emergency. There are two types - ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke is the most common type. It is usually caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel in the brain. This keeps blood from flowing to the brain. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. Another cause is stenosis, or narrowing of the artery. This can happen because of atherosclerosis, a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) occur when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted briefly. Having a TIA can mean you are at risk for having a more serious stroke.

Symptoms of stroke are

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg (especially on one side of the body)
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause

It is important to treat strokes as quickly as possible. Blood thinners may be used to stop a stroke while it is happening by quickly dissolving the blood clot. Post-stroke rehabilitation can help people overcome disabilities caused by stroke damage.

Pradaxa Ischaemic Stroke 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.
