Brief Answer:
Interaction with garlic

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,
I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but using garlic products with Pradaxa can lead to increased risk of bleeding in rare instances.

So, I would recommend that you stop using garlic unless urgently needed and if you choose to continue using it then you should monitor yourself for bleeding symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and bleeding per urine or stools...

There are no reported interactions between Pradaxa and other supplements that you are taking. However, it is recommended that you take them three hours apart.

I hope you find this helpful...
Regards
