I will soon be taking a long haul flight to the Far East. Over the years on previous flights to the Far East I have always worn flight support stockings to reduce the risks of flight related DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis). Having recently been diagnosed with AF, amongst other medications I am now taking 20 mg of Rivaroxaban each day. Is it advisable to still wear the flight support stockings or can I dispense with them?
