Pradaxa is a blood thinner intended to prevent a patient’s blood from clotting, resulting in a stroke. More specifically, Pradaxa thins the blood by affecting blood enzymes. As a consequence of taking the drug, many Pradaxa users have experienced gastrointestinal problems as well as serious internal bleeding forcing them to undergo surgery.
