  • NOAC dosage

    Hi Everyone This might be a silly question but I'm wondering why, for the new anticoagulants, there is no dosage adjustment to reflect an individual's height, weight and gender. Depending on body size blood volume can be anything between 3.5-7litres (or more). Having a standard dosage seems strange,...

  • Dosage reduced today from 5mg to 2.5mg

    Hi, after six months on 5mg twice a day have today been reduced to 2.5mg twice a day.  Is this likely to cause any problems or is it still enough to stop stroke and heart attacks etc. I know it won't stop clots but wondered if I would even notice.

  • Anticoagulants

    I would like to here from people who decided not to take anticoagulants and why. Most of the forums I have read seem to say that anticoagulants are a must if you are female and 65.
