I was really happy with the home tester because I always had a problem keeping my test result within the required limits and had needed to go in for the test really often. With the home tester, I had to test every week and call in the result. Then there was the lovenox shots required before any procedure where there might be bleeding. Switching to xarelto was a relief.
