For Deep Vein Thrombosis "I have been on Arixtra for 4 years now and am in law school. I had tried all the other medications for DVT's and pulmonary embolism, which I have had both and this is the only one that allows me to have a normal life."

For Deep Vein Thrombosis, Prophylaxis "Better than Lovenox, only once a day and it doesn't sting as much. Additionally I have less nausea and tiredness on it than I did with either Lovenox or Coumadin. However the nausea is still not great. I am looking forward to switching to Pradaxa and eliminating the need for shots, and hopefully, the nausea."
- Taken for 2 to 5 years

For Deep Vein Thrombosis "Using this drug for over 2 years after bilateral DVT and PE with HITT. No need to worry about foods I eat and worries about clotting times. Wish it was a pill verses an injection. Happy it has kept me stable."

For Deep Vein Thrombosis "I was on Arixstra for 2 years after failing love ox and eliquoise. When I paid for my own insurance($1600 a month, my insurance covered it. But now that I am disabled and on Medicare, my copay is $630 a month. They put me on warfarin and they can’t stabilize. Makes me feel sick. Tightening to get back on Arixstra it worked great for me."

For Pulmonary Embolism "Using this med as a last resort. With all the other blood thinners I had the reaction of extrame muscle and joint pain. The med doesn't do that, but it does make me quite fatigued. I am now using Mondofinial to relieve the fatigue and it works fairly well. Overall my life is fairly balanced, but wish there wasn't;t quite so much fatigue"
