my doctor didn't have any problem telling me his problems with pradaxa, which was:
if you should suddenly require surgery, you would have to wait over 24 hours for the blood to overcome the effects of pradaxa.
those on coumadin could simply be put on heparin for to reduce the effects of coumadin.
i'll stick with coumadin (as i have for the last 8 years or so)
