    Hi. My husband had all sorts of horrible side effects from warfarin. He was eventually changed to apixaban, but everyone is different so you might need to try a few. ( he tried riveroxaban which was even worse.)

    Warfain is really cheap...so you may have to fight for a different anticoag.

      You'd need to speak to your consultant. This is a forum for patients, we are not doctors.

      There are other drugs...my Mum was on clopidogral (not sure of spelling) but I believe it's mega expensive. Might be worth asking.
