PRADAXA® (dabigatran etexilate), manufactured by Bohringer Ingelheim, is an anti-coagulant that has been prescribed for patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation to help reduce the risk of stroke. When the heart has a rhythm disorder that produces a rapid, irregular heart rhythm, it is termed atrial fibrillation. More than 2 million individuals across the United States are affected by this disorder. The disorder can cause an increased risk of blood clots.
Because internal bleeding is often hard to diagnose, it is important for patients using blood thinners to be aware of unusual bruising, swollen joints or similar symptoms and report such problems to their physician immediately.
