Heart & Cardiology/Xarelto question
Hello: I am a male in my mid sixties,and my cardiologist has started me on Xarelto 20mg a day for idiopathic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.I was previously on 325mg ASA daily until I mentioned to him I had had a probable TIA in 2006,when I had the vision in one eye occluded for a minute or two.I wasn't taking daily ASA at the time.
I am writing to ask if minor bleeding can be addressed at home,or do I have to visit the ER? Thanks!
The same as when taking a blood thinner like coumadin, but harder to fix if a major bleed occurs. For minor events you shouldn't have to worry.
Hope this helps,
