I have learnt to plan ahead with our favourite highstreet pharmacist,(UK) regarding submitting my monthly prescription for Dabigatran x 150mg.(Pradaxa).I did this last Wednesday and was told it would be here for Friday.
I went today,Saturday,to collect the prescription and was told that due to manufacturing issues there wholesaler/supplier had run-out and they only had 4 capsules on the premises!
Has anyone also heard this?
The advice I was given was to contact my GP to ask for an alternative NOAC which I will try to do on Monday,but this has raised some thoughts that hopefully some of you maybe able to help me with.
If I'm given the luxuary of choice between Riveroxaban or Apixaban surely there is no great difference between the two?
Can changes of NOAC's be seemless,just stop one,start another,or would there be tests pre or post to taking a new one?
I have found taking a NOAC for anti-coagulation convenient and wonder where I stand if my GP should offer Warfaran.Just on the convenience issue could I decline Warfaran?
Thanking you all.
