Saw my EP today and as I said, I asked about changing to a NOACs because my understanding was they were slightly lower risk of a brain bleed. He has changed me over to Apixaban without further ado. Just waiting for blood test results first.
Just thought I'd let you know because I have said before that I was kept on Warfarin by my EP for various reasons; no antidote, newness of the drugs etc.
Also, I see him twice a year and he says he no longer needs to see me unless something changes, I think that's good news
PS. Anyone had a problem with it, any side-effects?
