as anyone changed from warfarin to other blood thinner .if so what was the comparison
warfarin v Rivaroxaban: as anyone changed... - Anticoagulation UK
I moved from Warfarin to Rivaroxaban a few years ago and my experience has been completely positive. A blood test once a year rather than every around every three weeks. I can now eat and drink almost anything I want, as the restrictions for Rivaroxaban are very small. If I have a minor cut, there appears to be no difference between the two drugs in the time taken to stop bleeding. I have had no adverse reaction to Rivaroxaban.
I changed from Warfarin to Rivaroxaban about 3 years ago. Even though I self tested I found it frustrating not knowing why my INR was sometimes way out of range. I really like that I don't have to worry about what I eat or drink . no regular blood tests is obviously a plus . No side effects at all ! I would recommend changing to anyone !
Here in Spain for now only sintrom is available thru free health system (this is pretty much equivalent to warfarin) ... I'd have to pay to change ... but personally don't have any problems with it as live very close to the health centre where go for the checks on INR. As the INR varies quite a lot for no obvious reasons I quite like having a check on it!
