Well that was easy!!!! Why was I worried? I made the appointment a month ago wanting to change from warfarin to the new anti coags, because each time I go away my INR goes haywire. The Doctor at my surgery is so supportive, she told me if she had AF she would not want to take Warfarin or be tied to a machine either but would choose one of the newer treatments. she explained about the risks, we fully explored all the ifs and buts and decided on Rivaroxaban, one 20mg tablet a day. She wants me back in 28days to check me over and if there are any problems I'm to go back immediately , so .....I start tomorrow......
