... pressure was low. I was in the process of finding a new Dr when this happened. The new Dr put me on 20M once a day. The urine problem is gone and the blood pressure is back to what is normal for me. We also did another ultra sound on my leg to see what was going on. The original clot was gone but I might have another small one in my calf. I have been referred to a hematologist and am waiting to hear from them.
It has been suggested that Zarelto may not be working for me. This was from another forum. So what now? I'm still taking the one pill a day and thank goodness I changed doctors. I'm just wondering how might have another clot has turned into yes I do have another clot in my leg?
Hi trisha386. Zarelto is prescribed ONLY after a clot has been dissolved (using Heparin,say,) and to prevent the formation of new clots. If a clot has not been dissolved, I do not think Zarelto will be an effective anticoagulant. Suggest you meet up with a Hemetologist.
