  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I don't know if it's the Pradaxa or my Meniere's causing the nausea--however, prior to having ear surgery, I didn't have nausea but mildly on occasion. Since ear surgery and since being put on Pradaxa for A-fib, about 9 weeks ago, the nausea is daily and mild to moderate--on occasion severe. Hard to say if it's the Pradaxa or the inner ear problem or both.
