I have had Granulomatosis with polyangiitis since 2008. In 2014 I had a flare up which caused a blood clot in my internal jugular vein. Since 2014 I've been on warfarin up to 15mg per day, because the clot is still there it looks like I will be on this long term. However, one consultant suggested I swap the warfarin for apixaban. This would mean I wouldn't require my INR monitored.
Has anyone else been on apixaban and what are the pros and cons compared to warfarin.
