Question for those currently taking Rivaroxaban: is everyone on 20 mg daily and is there anyone here who has been on 20mg and had it reduced? I understand that 15 mg and even 10 mg can still be effective for stroke prevention in AF.
Background to this question: I recently had a pre-op (tear duct procedure) blood test. The result has come back that my creatinine (kidney related) levels are “slightly elevated”. My GP has been advised. My last kidney function test was a few months ago and I heard nothing afterwards.
Also of relevance: I have only one kidney, probably since birth. I have lost about 20lbs in weight (deliberately) in the last year. My AF is rate controlled and I feel extremely well.
I am waiting to see whether my GP sends for me. Early in the New Year I have both a cardiologist appointment and one with the eye surgeon. It would be useful to have an informed discussion.
Thanks and a happy festive season and New Year to all.
