    There is no generic version of Pradaxa. The active ingredient in Pradaxa is dabigatran etexilate mesylate, but it is not available in a generic form.

    Pradaxa, a prescription medication to help prevent blood clots and stroke in people with a heart condition known as atrial fibrillation, was approved as a brand-name drug by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010.
