Paradox is quite a new drug
There is no generic and there will not be a generic for quite some time...

The two choices for A-fib anticoagulation now are pradaxa and coumadin.

Coumadin is quite a lot cheaper and has generic brands..wafarin.

Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......
