What are signs that I may have taken too much Pradaxa?

Pradaxa is a blood thinner, so an overdose can cause uncontrolled internal bleeding. Symptoms of an overdose may include unusual bruising or bleeding, pink or brown urine, red or black tar-like stools, vomiting material that is bloody or looks like coffee grounds, or coughing up blood.

If you believe you have taken an overdose of Pradaxa, call the Poison Control Center immediately at 1-800-222-1222. While there is no specific medication that can reverse an overdose, prompt medical treatment can be lifesaving. If someone you know has taken an overdose of Pradaxa and has collapsed or stopped breathing, call 911.
