When I lie down, my face gets blood red, then standing up, really red again?been on pradaxa for a year for atrial fib. nausea, gas, bloating was all I noticed first. Lately, I noticed the blood rushes to my face when I lie down at night and when I sit up it does the same. only when I am standing does this go away. I feel cold all the time. I blame this on Pradaxa. at a recent physical, my blood tests showed an abnormal liver result and my doctor asked me if I drank much. I don't drink at all. Is this a result of Pradaxa??? please help me.I am considering going back on warfarin. Yes, the blood tests were a nuisance but I understood where I stood with it. NOW I don't know what is going on in my body with this drug.
You should consider switching to Arixtra or Lovenox. You will not have to do testing just like Pradaxa. You should also report your side effects to MedWatch: The FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program. They need to know about these issues with Pradaxa.
