Advantages of Eliquis or Xarelto over Coumadin?

I’ve recently been diagnosed with AFib and Dr has me on Eliquis (30 day free sample) and Metoprolol. Just checking drug prices for blood thinners took my breath away. Are these new drugs worth it or are there less expensive options that work just as well? I will be having discussion about this with cardiologist tomorrow, so looking for some input. Thanks

@abbysmom. I'm on Xeralto, same type of blood thinner. They are very expensive, even with insurance. Wafarin is cheaper but it interacts with vitamin k… No green leafy vegetables and other food high in this vitamin. Ieat alot of green vegetables so I refill it monthly so it's not such a sticker shock. Last year I had a Co pay of over 100 a month. I called the drug company for assistance but don't qualify. You can try and see if you have better luck. My cardiologist was able to give me some samples. That's another way. I do not have afib but I had a TIA so I have to take it so I don't have a stroke. Take care. Please share what your doctor say.
