I was recently diagnosed with afib and the dr on duty sd they would contact my cardiologist to put me on blood thinners. I’m already a bleeder on pegasys so I don’t bleed. How does this work?
I had a single incident of AFIB, last September, hospitalized . I have a (not treated) first degree heart block, congenitial. Had a complete cardio workup, scan and all. No issues but placed on 5mg Eliquis as a precaution. Doing great! ET, JAK 2; CLL
I’m on Eliquis-blood thinner for a DVT I had last year. I haven’t had any problems or side effects from taking them.
I just have to be careful not to cut myself or hurt myself while on blood thinners and Hydrea.
For my bleeding I use a white crayon looking tool. I do not know what it is called but you can get them at CVS. It helps to stop the bleeding for paper cuts, razor cuts, small cuts. You wet the tip and apply it to the area. It will sting a bit but the bleeding stops within seconds. I just looked it up it is called a Styptic Pencil.
Oh wow! I always wondered that too! I carry around bandaids in my purse but I don’t think that would help in your case. Better check with your doc. Or contact the pharmacy, they will know dear.
