Hi, as the title says I am actually doing o.k on my medication, Apixaban and Zemtard. They appear to be keeping things fairly well under control with only a few minor hic cups now and again. However there are a couple of things I would appreciate some advice with please if anyone can help. Have been on these meds now for 12 months next week and over the last 3 I have noticed that my nails have become very ridged from cuticle to top and are very flaky and frequently split. Any one with any ideas please. Secondly, I have also put on about 6 lbs in weight around my middle in spite of watching what I eat. Exercise has been very difficult for me over the last 12 months following spinal fractures, about six weeks ago I started Pilates to help with regaining some strength and it does appear to be working but I know it's going to take more than this to shift the weight. Any ideas would be greatly received.
