You should talk to your dr about it.
Typically Pradaxa is discontinued 1 to 2 days (no renal impairment) or 3 to 5 days (CrCl <50 mL/min) before invasive or surgical procedures because of the increased risk of bleeding. Consider longer times if undergoing major surgery, spinal puncture, or placement of a spinal or epidural catheter or port, in whom complete hemostasis may be required. What has your doctor said?
