I had sugery about a month ago. After the surgery I formed a blood clot and was prescibed Coumadin. Well I like to eat and Have a few beers. So what I want to know is if I can switch tp Prodaxa if I already have a clot. The doctors have me on Coumadin for six months two of wich I have complted. If I am able I will pay if the insurance doesnt want to cover it. Thats how much I hate coumadin and there blood draws. Please advise asap.
Go by your doctor's advice. Everyone cant't take Prodaxa. Went on Prodaxa at t he start, two days later reacted and ended in hosp. Now on Warfarn. Doing great. You like to eat. Just watch the high Vit K foods, which is the green, cut back on mayonnaise. Margarin a no. Use butter. How is your INR. If it is in the range after your beers, you will know to cut back or a drink once in a while. Good Luck. Let others know if you can drink those beers and stay in your reange.
