So I am scheduled for a colonoscopy on May 11 and have been advised to stop Pradaxa 2 days prior. Problem is, I am now having daily episodes of arrhythmia (not sure if aFib) and am concerned of stroke risk while off Pradaxa.
Is it safe to be off Pradaxa 2-3 days for this procedure if arrhythmia continues? Recent episodes now last only a few hours instead of days, but I’m not sure how long clotting takes when blood thinners are stopped.
I am inclined to reschedule the colonoscopy until after my aFib/arrhythmia stabilizes and/or I begin Tikosyn to hopefully eliminate the arrhythmia.
Any feedback is appreciated.
