... hip replacement surgery. İn the hospital İ was prescribed 10 mgs od but 2 weeks later (today) at a cardiac follow-up for AF (discovered at pre-surgery check) the consultant prescribed continuation of 15mgs. I was not sure of the dose prescribed as an inpatient but realised when I got home I was on 10 mgs. Rang the consultant who said it was quite safe to take 15 mgs 2 days running folowed by nothing on the third day. This does not seem right to me and I am loathe to do this. I would appreciate knowing if this has been suggested to anyone before. I am 66 year-old male and today my INR was within normal range
İ have just been started on xarelto for atrial fibrillation but also following?
