xeralto question
January 02, 2019 07:29PM
edit.. my congenital cardiologist emailed me thankfully so i am going to go forward with his advice and i see him tomorrow. thanks.. i was trying to figure out how to delete this post but i only see edit. thanks all.

I have had about 5 episodes of a-fib always converted. but the last 2 were a week apart. So i went back to the EP doc and they put me on cardizem and flecanide. they said to do xeralto if i did go into afib. I will say that the drugs helped for a week. But im pretty sure i am in afib. I go to my adult congential cardiologist tomorrow. the EP said to go ahead and take the xeralto- but if i am back in sinus is that necessary? She said if i was not in afib tomorrow i could just go off. I haven't really dove into all this afib stuff because i have always come out of it and it was years apart. But my immediate step right now is do i pop a xeralto? wait till tomorrow? that will be a 24 hour window. I do think perhaps the medications are causing this because the last 3 days i have felt it about 2 hours after taking my morning medications. But the last 2 days it went back. sad smiley

Take the Xarelto. If you don't need it, it's harmless. If you need it, it's life saving.

The only negative to blood thinners is bruising BUT bruising will heal; A stroke could end Life. Take the blood thinner. It’s your best defense against a stroke. I know everyone is different but I bruise easier on Xarelto than Eliquis. When I was taking 10 mg of Xarelto 1X a day, I bruised so easily. Since swapping to Eliquis 2.5 mg 2X a day, I do not bruise as easy.
