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.”
