Anti coagulants

November 23, 2014

So, I am on rivaroxaban, xeralto.  The other option is coumadin which has an antidote but requires regular blood work and visits to the lab which isn’t easy! Xeralto requires no monitoring.

I was concerned about this greatly. There is currently no antidote to this drug and lots of pending lawsuits in the US. MMMMMmmm. It is a new drug so this is to be expected I guess.

I had a long chat with a resident and also my surgeon about this drug choice.  I know there are risks with everything. Eventually I have squared the risk with myself but I do have a daily google alert on xeralto.  Seemingly lots of people have used it successfully. And I won’t be on it long term.
