Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Renal Dysfunction

The anticoagulant activity and half-life of dabigatran may increase in patients with renal impairment. It is recommended to decrease the dose in patients with severe renal impairment (CrCl 15-30 mL/min). No dose adjustment is recommended in patients with mild or moderate renal impairment. Dosing recommendations for patients with CrCl <15 mL/min or on dialysis has not been established. Care should be exercised when using this agent in patients with renal impairment or on dialysis.

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

Direct acting oral anticoagulants including factor Xa inhibitors and some thrombin inhibitors as dabigatran, are not recommended for use in patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).

Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No interaction information available.
