Which blood thinner to choose
Going to start a blood thinner for my afib and would like to know which one to choose? 66 as if yesterday and cardiologist said it’s time to start since I’m always out of sinus rhythm.

When will there be a generic blood thinner coming out??
Proprietary drugs can be really costly for sure! I’m on one that doesn’t have a generic. Costly yup, but it’s been a life saver.
I found a couple of articles which should be good news for you.
This article is from My Healthy Click, dated June 1, 2021
Here’s an excerpt:
“ In May 2012, the FDA approved generic versions of clopidogrel (Plavix). In December 2019, the drug regulatory body approved generic versions of apixaban (Eliquis). Generic apixaban approvals were granted to Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Micro Labs Ltd. The lowest price for Generic Plavix 75 mg is $5.40 for 30 tablets, which is 90% cheaper than the branded version that is available at an average retail price of $58.30 for 30 tablets, according to GoodRx. The lowest price for Generic Eliquis 5 mg is around $494 for 60 tablets, 15% cheaper than branded one that costs $583”
