Signs of Internal Bleeding

Pradaxa is a part of the drug class which is known as “direct thrombin inhibitors.” Used as an alternative to warfarin, Pradaxa is taken orally to thin the blood by inhibiting an enzyme found in the blood that is associated with blood clotting. The most serious side effect found after taking Pradaxa has been internal bleeding. Kidney function after taking Pradaxa could cause abnormally high levels of the drug, leading to internal bleeding since it is excreted through the kidneys.

  • Lack of energy
  • Unusual bruising or bleeding
  • Pink/brown urine
  • Bloody stools that look red/black and tarry
  • Coughing up blood
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting that resembles blood or looks like coffee grounds
  • Severe and constant headaches
  • Unusual bleeding from the gums
  • Nosebleeds
  • Weakness and swelling of the arms, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs
