KevinMD Comments on Dabigatran (Pradaxa)

I am grateful that influential physician and social media leader, Dr. Kevin Pho (@KevinMD), re-posted my recent dabigatran comments. As is often the case with these new drugs, a spirited conversation ensued.

Head over to KevinMD and take a look at my answers to some valid issues with the drug.

Also, there’s a ton of other great posts there as well.

  1. Before the Internet, this type of discussion would have been largely invisible to the patient; probably confined to the letters section of a medical journal. Now all your patients can see “Mom and Dad” arguing. A reasoned argument, to be sure, but what does this do to the doctor-patient relationship? Is it easier or harder?
