Watch for Statin Interactions With Pradaxa

There's a new drug interaction between Pradaxa (dabigatran) and simvastatin or lovastatin that'll need your attention.

Taking Pradaxa with simvastatin (Zocor, etc) or lovastatin (Mevacor, etc) can raise Pradaxa levels in the body...possibly making blood too thin and increasing bleeding risk.

Alert your pharmacist if you see a patient on one of these combos.
