Anticoagulant

Posted by @bock, Tue, Oct 16 8:57am

Taking eliquis Xarelto or pradaxa will increase INR.,..is this true?

REPLY

@bock. INR is not suitable for monitoring the blood clotting under a therapy with the new "blood-thinners", like xarelto or eliquis.due to the possible effect on the INR. some patients show an increase, other patients do not. which laborator does make the test plays a role also.

if I opt to take warfarin instead of the new anticoagulant, how to get my INR into the therapeutic range of 2.5. presently my INR is 1.1
Thk you
