I am fairly new to all this, only being diagnosed with PAF less than a year ago, and have only ever had two episodes. I know that a fair amount has been written about these two drugs, but I am trying to find something that suits me, so would value any opinions.
I started with Apixaban, which seemed to cause unbearable side effects (although I can't be 100% sure of that because I was also on an antibiotic at the time). I have been on Rivaroxaban 20 mg for 10 weeks, but because of some people's comments about it on this site, I asked my doctor for Edoxaban. My dilemma is that I was given a 60 mg dose because I am 3 kg over the cut-off weight for this drug. My CHA2DS2-VASc score is 2, so I am concerned that the dose doubles from the lower dose of 30 mg, instead of going up in increments . Any comments will be appreciated.
