Hi there, anybody out there able to answer my question? I am taking Pradaxa 1 x bd, I notice on the leaflet that in some cases it can cause bleeding , which I started today, per the nether regions,so I rang 111 and the told me to go to the out of hours surgery at the cottage hospital here. Long story short, Dr (polish) I think looked at me as though I was an alien when explained about the Pradaxa , then looked the nurse the same, asked if was on warfarin, and then proceeded. To tell me was I on aspirin and clopedogrel for AF,then said would maybe have to stop that (Pradaxa) to which I replied surely that dangerous,no he said. He then prescribed Canestan and pessary. I'm really confused now. That's the second time I've told that hospital I am on Pradaxa and the second time had the same reaction. Surely Drs know about it being an anti-coagulant,or is it me being thick? now I have to use the pessary and cream for 3 days then go to my GP. Sann
