Video: Dabigatran and Rivaroxaban are possible Coumadin replacements

If you’re on Coumadin or warfarin for your atrial fibrillation, you’re probably interested in the coming replacements for it. In part 2 of our Coumadin series, Dr. Manish Shah, Electrophysiologist at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, talks about the clotting cascade and two drugs that are potential replacements for Coumadin.

  1. Dovie,

    I’m so sorry you’re having problems. Please see your doctor immediately to avoid dehydration and other problems, none of which will help your afib.

    I don’t know the answer, though I don’t see any reason that it would hurt it.

    Readers, do you know or have you had experience with this?

    I’ll also ask around.
