Does anyone have any experience of blood clotting tablets? I had a lower leg blood clot last summer during a hospital admission. On discharge i was changed from injections to Rivaroxaban (Xarelto) tablets once a day for 6 months. I then returned to taking aspirin. The d-dimer test now shows an elevated risk of a further clot and I will have to go back on tablets. The doctor is considering an alternative to Rivaroxaban which I think is Apixaban (Eliquis) which is taken twice a day with a lower risk of bleeding. Needless to say it appears to have its own long list of side effects. Has anyone been on it it and were the side effects tolerable?
