Hi to you all
I am new here but not new to APS. I was diagnosed with Protein S deficiency in 2008. My doctor put me on a baby aspirin a day.
I had three miscarriages after two healthy children in 2010. In 2012 I had a pulmonary embolism and bloodwork showed APS. I was placed on Coumadin with a recommended INR of 2.5-3.5
I had a difficult time remaining therapeutic on Coumadin and ranged from 1.0-6.5 and my hematologist switched me to Eliquis 2 years ago.
I recently visited the Mayo Clinic for a different health issue and the doctor I saw told me that Eliquis is not the best med for APS. He sent me to a vascular doctor there who recommended Coumadin.
When I returned home and saw my local hematologist he said that he wouldn’t recommend switching back as I couldn’t be kept therapeutic.
He said he would write the prescription but he did t think it was a good idea
I was curious if any of you have dealt with a similar issue and how it could be resolved?
Any recommendations would be appreciated!
