I experienced severe GI problems (heartburn, bloating, constipation, bleeding hemorrhoids and gas), neck and shoulder pain, fatigue and headaches. This is a nasty drug! I had an emergency medicine and a critical care physician both tell me that bleeding can't be stopped in an emergency.

Have been on Pradaxa for a little over a month, was on coumadin over 7 years---big difference: no INRs, can eat greens. No side effects except some tenderness in area of kidneys. Large pill is hard to swallow with lapband though.
