I have been taking the anticoagulant Edoxaban since last September. The following month I was taken to hospital because of a nose bleed that went on for about an hour and a quarter. By the time the ambulance reached the hospital the bleed had stopped. Four days ago I bent over to pull a weed up and suddenly there was blood dripping from my nose. It stopped after about 20 minutes. The next day I bent over and blood started flooding out of my nose. After 45 minutes with no improvement I phoned 111 and they ordered an ambulance. It was delayed and the bleeding stopped after one and three quarter hours so I cancelled the ambulance. This morning I have had two, half hour nose bleeds. When they happen I lean forward and pinch the fleshy part of my nose hard. Is there anything else I can do to stop the bleeding more quickly? I couldn't get an appointment to see my GP but had a telephone consultation with a GP which wasn't very helpful. Any advice please? E
