PradaxaPradaxa, with the generic name Dabigatran, is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) used to treat blood clots, such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms. It has been used in patients who had hip or knee replacement surgery, and is often prescribed for people with irregular heartbeats.

Patients who have taken Pradaxa report greater susceptibility to bruising and bleeding, including frequent nosebleeds. Additional negative side effects include severe headaches, dizziness or fainting, chronic fatigue, abnormal pain or swelling and blood in stools or urine.

Dabigatran was first developed in the 1980s, but not approved for use in the United States until 2010.
