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 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 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”

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.”
