In September 2015 and in June 2016 I developed a blot clot in a superficial vein in my right quadricep. Both resolved themselves. Because I was scheduled to fly my vascular surgeon sent me to a benign hematologist who proposed I take 2.5 mg of the drug two hours before a flight and a second dose twelve hours after the first. I followed the doctor's directions and was fine.
I recently consulted once more with the doctor as I am scheduled to travel to Asia (a 15 hour flight) and will have several inter-city flights before returning back home. Since I will be away for two weeks and have three inter-city flights (one approximately every three days) the doctor suggested I take 2.5 mg twice a day for the duration of the trip.
I'm a bit nervous about going on the drug for two weeks as it is a powerful drug with many potential side effects. Your thoughts please.
