Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) is a prescription anticoagulant medication used to prevent strokes and blood clots in people with an irregular heart rhythm known as atrial fibrillation. It belongs to a group of medications known as direct thrombin inhibitors.

This med is being studied as an alternate to Warfrin, however please do speak to doc/pharmacist who would give you more accurate info.

Take care, best wishes!
