Lack of Regular Blood Test Monitoring Raises Concerns
Today’s increasingly popular blood thinners may require less monitoring than the traditional standby, Coumadin, also known as warfarin, but they are not without their own risks and problems. According to Florida Today, several studies have shown that not all prescription blood thinners are created equal, and that several anticoagulants, including Xarelto, are more likely to cause major hemorrhages within the body than others.
While many patients are increasingly turning to non-Coumadin alternatives, including Xarelto, to help reduce blood clots because they do not require close monitoring, this lack of monitoring through regular blood tests also raises several concerns. Because these blood tests are not performed regularly to assess the drug’s impact on the body, it becomes increasingly difficult to determine proper dosage and predict exactly how the drug will affect the patient. Coumadin’s alternatives also cost almost 30 times more than Coumadin on a monthly basis despite the fact that they have been allegedly linked to hemorrhagic stroke and brain bleeds.
