Blood Thinner (Anticoagulant) Overview

Anticoagulants, commonly known as blood thinners, are chemical substances that prevent or reduce coagulation of blood, prolonging the clotting time.[1] Some of them occur naturally in blood-eating animals such as leeches and mosquitoes, where they help keep the bite area unclotted long enough for the animal to obtain some blood.[2][3] As a class of medications, anticoagulants are used in therapy for thrombotic disorders.[4] Oral ...

JNJ Study on Xarelto

I am looking for the entire JNJ study on Xarelto. ## Hi Charles - Have you already viewed the following page on ClinicalTrials.gov? I believe that you can access a variety of documents from there: The New England Journal of Medicine also has an article on the study conducted by MAGELLAN: Are you looking for any other parts of the study?

Clopidogrel vs Clopidogrel Bisulfate 75 mg

Is Clopidogrel the same as Clopidogrel Bisulfate? ## Yes, those are two different ways of saying the same active ingredient. Out of curiosity, are you switching generic manufacturers?

Natural treatments in place of Eliquis

Has anyone had good luck using alternative natural supplements instead of taking Eliquis? I've been on it for 4 months and it just keeps getting worse. All over body pain and weakness. Chest pain. Messes with my BP. Itching. Can't sleep. Nausea. Tingling in legs. No motivation. Headaches. Hair loss. Eye pain. Can't gain weight. It's awful. Any advice or help would be appreciated. Thanks. ## Unfortunately, those are all fairly common side effects of Eliquis, according to the FDA, and in some cases, they have been so bad that people had to stop taking it. Warfarin is often used to prevent the same types of clotting issues, but it does require regular blood draws to check your clotting factor, and frequent dosage adjustments. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possib...

How are you feeling? I am very sorry that the Xarelto made you so miserable. Many people have complained about similar side effects.

Blue pill A324 on one side, R and a thin crescent moon on the other

Can someone please help me identify these pills? They are blue-speckled pills with an R and a thin crescent moon on one side and A 324 on the other with a score between the A and 324.... Thank you ## Hey I've got the same pills. They were marketed as 10mg Valium, however I don't trust them and rightly so as I can't for the life of me trace them. The closest I got from searching was that they are black market, so could have benzodiazepine in them or none at all. A pal of mine was willing to try one and he said he felt a short lived effect. His UDS came up positive for benzos but to be fair he did take a 20mg temazepam too. I know it's not much to go on. I don't recommend black market pills as you don't know how much of the active ingredient is in each pill. I'...

Stopping Xarelto

I have been instructed to stop my 20mg a day after being on it for 6 months (2 PE's one in each lung at Xmas) and I have to say I am really worried and every little pain I think its come back. I have another 3 weeks to go until I got for a blood test to see if I am prone to clots however I am completely paranoid. Anyone else had the same feelings....as the meds have been my comfort blanket for so long..... ## Have you had a hypercoagulability test? Mine revealed a Factor B Leiden gene mutation, so I will never stop taking blood thinners. If you can have that blood test, it will let you know if you have a tendency to clot. ## Do you mean Factor V Leiden? Been on 20 mg Xarelto since march 2014. Had double pneumonia in jan 2014 accompanied by DVT which threw clots to my lungs. In hospt...

Procedure for stopping Eliquis and going back to Aspirin

Anyone know how to safely get off eliquis and back on just aspirin? ## Hi cynthia, Depending on how long you've been on Eliquis (Apixaban) for, I think it would be wise to talk to your doctor about developing some sort of tapering schedule that reduces any risk of serious withdrawal symptoms. According to ucsd.edu, apparently Eliquis comes with a "black box warning label" regarding its withdrawals in patients with A-Fib (atrial fibrillation); with some articles stating that Eliquis may trigger a stroke if suddenly stopped. So working closely with your doctor to avoid that risk seems to me like it should be first priority. Does anyone else here have personal experience coming off Eliquis who can offer some pointers on what to expect? ## Hi Cynthia I have also come off Elequis...

Eliquis Shortness of breath

I was taken off of Xarelto and put on Eliquis 2.5mg twice daily. Everything seemed fine. Then my cardiologist increased the dose to 5 mg twice daily because she said I should be on a “regular” dose. Within a day or two, I started with shortness of breath upon the least exertion. Also, I became constiipated. I continued until I became so debilitated that I decided to lower back to the 2.5 dose. By this time, the shortness of breath had a life of its own. Anyone else have this reaction to Eliquis? ## Hi Marilynn, Sorry to hear about your reaction to the medication. Medlineplus.gov lists the following symptoms as side effects of Eliquis (Apixaban): -trouble breathing -wheezing -feeling dizzy or faint Source: medlineplus.gov/druginfo/meds/a613032.html They go on to note that if ...

can xarelto cause a side effect called planter fasciitis

I have been on Xarelto for just over 3 months. I have pain in my right heel that is extremely painful to walk on. A doctor diagnosed it as plantar fasciitis. Is this another side effect of Xarelto? ## It is not listed as a known side effect by the FDA. The typical side effects of Xarelto are listed as possibly including nausea, easy bruising, increased risk of bleeding, headache, and joint/muscle aches. As of now, according to current research, medications haven't been known to cause Plantar Fasciitis, however, that doesn't completely rule them out, either, since we learn new things every day. Are you on any other medications?
