When severe bleedings occur, treatment must be discontinued, the source of bleeding investigated and use of the specific reversal agent Praxbind idarucizumab may be considered see section 4.

The inducing effect was diminished resulting in dabigatran exposure close to the reference by day 7 after cessation of rifampicin treatment. Although rare in frequency in clinical trials, major or severe bleeding may occur and, regardless of location, may lead to disabling, life-threatening or even fatal outcomes.

Pradaxa mg hard capsules. Based on dabigxtran concentrations as determined by the diluted thrombin time test and clinical assessment, the dose was adjusted to the target dose of 2. Subjects randomized to mg Pradaxa twice daily had a significantly higher risk for major GI bleeds compared with warfarin hazard ratio 1.


Dabigatran is subject to conjugation forming pharmacologically active acylglucuronides. Concomitant administration of P-gp inhibitors see table dabigatraj is expected to result in increased dabigatran plasma concentrations. When excessive dabigatran exposure is identified in patients at high risk of bleeding, a reduced dose of mg taken as one mg capsule twice daily is recommended.

Based on the most current information available to Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Patients on Pradaxa who undergo surgery or invasive procedures are at increased risk for bleeding. Myocardial infarction rates were slightly increased with dabigatran etexilate mg twice daily and mg twice daily compared to warfarin hazard ratio 1.

They have not been studied and are therefore not recommended for concomitant treatment with Pradaxa. When a loading dose of dabigtaran ticagrelor was given 2 hours after mg dabigatran etexilate in steady statethe increase of dabigatran AUC ,ss and C max,ss was reduced to 1.

Your message was not sent.

A study evaluating post-operative absorption of dabigatran etexilate, hours following surgery, demonstrated relatively slow absorption dabihatran with that in healthy volunteers, showing a smooth plasma concentration-time profile without high peak plasma concentrations. Itraconazole, cyclosporine Based on in vitro results a similar effect as with ketoconazole may be expected. Dose reductions are recommended for patients who receive concomitantly verapamil see table 1 above and sections 4.

To view the changes to a medicine you must sign up and log in.

Since thrombin serine protease enables the conversion of fibrinogen into fibrin during the coagulation cascade, its inhibition prevents the development of thrombus.

When Pradaxa was co-administered with a single oral dose of mg amiodarone, the extent and rate of absorption of amiodarone and its dabigahran metabolite DEA were psc unchanged.
