I am not sure about the Pradaxa and what to expect. It's name is also Dabigatran. I would be advise you to ask your doctor or coumadin clinician about the target INR you should be looking at. (If you were taking coumadin, it takes about 2 weeks to become stable and then the dosage that will work for you must be decided. ) Everyone I have ever spoken with that is taking COUMADIN are on different dosages as it works differently within everyone. When I switched from Lovenox (Clexane) to coumadin it took me 3 to 4 weeks to stabilize. Good luck.

INR is not a viable option when assessing the use of dabigatran or rivaroxaban. Additionally, PT is not a viable option when monitoring a patient on dabigatran. However, PT may be an option for monitoring select patients on rivaroxaban until more reliable standardized tests are developed. Methods of measuring the effectiveness of these agents are currently being developed and tested; however, until they are made available, the existing tests may be adapted to be used in a more effective manner.
