I've been invited to participate in an edoxaban vs warfarin trial.
I currently take warfarin for my AF.
My INR is stable and I have my cardioversion pre admission assessment appointment on the 24th Feb.
The procedure will be done at the John Radcliffe in Oxford. A fantastic hospital with great staff.
The carrot, is that I will get my procedure 21 days after starting the trial, the stick is less clear because I get on relatively well with my current medication and don't really want to mess about with it.
So two questions----roughly how long will it be for my cardioversion after the assessment? I assume it will be relatively soon or I'd need another assessment.
And...has anyone on this site had any experience of edoxaban.
I am in favour of medical trials but I'm not so sure that this one will benefit me unless I've got to wait months after the assessment in which case the edoxaban trial would be a good option for me and I could get my life back
Any comments will be most welcome.
