Hello, I was diagnosed with having multiple bi lateral PE'S in Dec/16. Today I was also diagnosed with having gout. It is not a severe case, but it is very painful. I am now trying to find what has caused this. I am currently taking Pradaxa and am wondering if my gout has to do with this drug?
I awakened to terrible pain . I was rushed to the hospital. Emergency colostomy had to be performed immediately or death was imminent. The only change in diet or medication was the addition of Pradaxa several months earlier. HAS THIS HAPPENED TO ANYONE ELSE ?
My father who is a fit 85 year old has been on Pradaxa for about 2 years now. He has developed thrombocytopaenia but his doctor has proceeded to double his dosage. His platelets have dropped further. Any advice?
