No Known Pradaxa Internal Bleeding Antidote
Pradaxa came onto the market for treatment of blood clot prevention with medical fanfare, being hoisted up as a safer alternative to the traditional warfarin blood thinners which fall under the brands Marfarin, Coumadin, and Jantoven). Although Pradaxa does not necessarily react with some specific foods like how warfarin typically does, Pradaxa does, however, raise the chances for fatal bleeding events. At the same time, if there were to be a warfarin bleeding event, the positive aspect of Warfarin that cannot be matched by Pradaxa is that Warfarin has an antidote via vitamin K administration which stops the bleeding. Pradaxa does not have any kind of known antidote for dangerous internal bleeding, which makes Pradaxa potentially much more fatal from internal hemorrhages and internal bleeding.
