They sent him home with twice daily script of XARELTO... Instead of Coumadin .since he has no insurance ***He was in hospital for 12days 3yrs ago with a PE..which he was on Coumadin for 6months... BUT,that was before he lost his job AND Insurance**** QUESTION:the sore on his leg is stating to bleed/ooze..can he take just one dose of the XARELTO instead of 2 a day??His ER doctor was a putz and has no primary... so any input would be awesome.thankyou. He is 55..very active. Dog bite 10yrs ago they say caused his PE..thanks again for reading all this.
Whoa, what sore on his leg? First input, he needs to get a primary and get it straightened out. He shouldn't be bleeding from anywhere, but you can't just alter the dose with a doc seeing him. What symptoms did he have that he went to the er, and what did they do to diagnose it.
