Last year I went to Holland and took a side trip to Ireland to see John Rogers and take part in his summer school. I left the Pradaxa in Holland and had to see a doctor. The doctor thought that one or two days without it would not have mattered so much, but the pharmacist took a different view. Anyway, no harm was done.
