Hello,

I have been researching and have come up empty handed.

The safest course of action you must take, with all due respect is to contact your Dr. or Pharmacist right away.-

All the best and take care.-

Yes it can. The oral bioavailability of Pradaxa increases by 75% when the pellets are taken without the capsule shell. Therefore, Pradaxa should not be chewed.
