I am 77yrs old and have always been healthy untill 18mths ago when I got a blood clot in my brain.Was prescribed Warfarin which did not cause side affects.My INR target was 2.5 which I maintained for a long time.Recently my INR has been erratic-swinging from 1.7 to 2, and a few times 3.5..I can think of no reason for this as I do not change my diet and know which foods affect the INR.
Today I saw a consultant at St,Thomas and she wants me to go on rivaroxaban which I agreed to.But on getting home and reading the long list of serious side affects I looked on the internet and discovered that this drug has caused a lot of health problems and even death.
Apparently it is not even registered for patients with APS( I do have APS).
Has anyone on here been on rivaoxaban and how was it.
I am due to start this drug tomorrow but am now scared to do so.
Thanks for any advice.
