Patients can now keep Pradaxa (dabigatran) for 60 days after the bottle is opened
Patients can now keep Pradaxa (dabigatran) for 60 days after the bottle is opened...instead of just 30 days.
Pradaxa has a 30-day beyond-use date...because the capsules are moisture sensitive. Now new data suggest that Pradaxa is good for at least 60 days after opening...when it's kept in the original container.
Continue to dispense Pradaxa in the manufacturer's original container or unit-dose packs to protect it from moisture...and DON'T transfer it to an amber vial or put it in your own blister packs.
