Hi, I am a 28 year old male. Back in early march i had a very serious PE very suddenly which was then rooted to a DVT in my leg. However the cause of the DVT is has not been resolved by the doctors. I have been placed on a course of 5mg Apixaban for 6 months of which i have seen no ill effects and started to exercise again.
I just wanted to know if anyone knew the likelihood of me coming off the medication after 6 months or whether i will have to stay on these potentially for life?
As a very active/social male the meds are preventing me from enjoying a lot of social activiites. Just wanted to see if i need to prepare myself mentally for the fact this could become a life change rather than a short term.
