Have been on Pradaxa for about 4months after taking xarelto which for me caused mental confusion.Pradaxa appears to cause excessive tiredness which can be a real problem as I Iive alone and do my own house and garden maintenance. Age 68 have AF and COPD Have had 3 hip replacements and use a walking stick.Being able to continue to be independent is my greatest concern.
I have been on 250mg camcolit (lithium carbonate) twice daily for the past two months. Had a severe rhinitis and sneezing at first, and nearly fell asleep behind the steering wheel a few times. Had to have a few deep nourishing treatments for extra dry hair. The Dr added 20mg Cilift (Citalopram hydrobromide) two weeks ago which sorted out the sleeplessness. I realise now that Wellbutrin () has a lot of "wake up" abilities even though it didn't do enough for depression.

Hi, I'm Laurel and have been on Pradaxa for over 6 mos and probably will take forever unless something else comes along. Couldn't tolerate Xarelto, Eliquis or Savaysa due to the headaches, and the Lovenox injections for over a year were so painful and had bruising and lumps. But now I'm gaining ...
