So the difference would be based on your CHADS2 score.
Your CHADS 2 score is 2 because you had a stroke/TIA (supposedly)
In this case you qualify for coumadin or pradaxa.
I question if that was a stroke or not. In that case, your CHADS2 score would be zero most likely and aspirin would be okay.
I do think pradaxa is safe long term though.
That is tough.
You technically are risking stroke by going off of it.
Perhaps your doctor would let you go on full aspirin for the time being.
I was planning to go back on it as soon as I can, then discuss with my doctor at my next visit.
I have had no other issues with Pradaxa in terms of side effects . I also have a medicalert bracelet just in case I have an accident etc.
Thanks for your advice.
You're welcome, Jacky.
