I'm currently on warfarin but in the very early stages of considering one of the alternatives. My first question arises from the fact that dabigatran is taken twice a day, apixaban twice a day but, as I understand it, rivaroxaban is only once a day? Given that 'once a day' is surely more convenient, why isn't rivaroxaban the anticoagulant of choice? What's the downside.....?
