The standard dose of Pradaxa for people with normal kidney function is 150 mg taken twice daily. However, if you have poor kidney function, your healthcare provider may reduce this dosage to 75 mg twice daily. Do not adjust your dosage or stop taking this medication without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
