Information About Pradaxa Medication:
Pradaxa is used to help prevent the formation of blood clots. It is an anticoagulant that is used to lower the risk of blood clots and stroke in people who suffer from atrial fibrillation. It helps to treat the blood clots in lungs (pulmonary embolism, or PE) or in the veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis). Pradaxa medication also lowers the risk of this problem reoccurring.
Pradaxa 150 mg is easily available online at Canada Pharmacy. Quality is guaranteed.
Pradaxa capsules contain dabigatran etexilate mesylate as the active ingredient.
People who have an artificial heart valve should avoid taking this medication.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
