Xarelto and Eczema
Had been on Coumadin for several years for recurrent DVTs and had periods of rashes and itching. In April I had more leg clots while on Coumadin, so doctor switched me to Zarelto. Clots are gone, rashes are gone, but skin itches more, just about everywhere: scalp, back, face, arms. Leg itching I think is due to previous dvts causing varicose veins and pooling.

I have developed it around my eyes and behind my ears since starting Xarelto.

DVT, EP, excercise
A question about the stents: do they have valves built into them to prevent blood pooling?

I had clots in my left calf in 1999. Thinking I had pulled a muscle, I went to the gym and did light leg lifts which broke up the clots which went into my lungs. A year later was up to running a mile again and back at the gym. In 2011 I had extensive clotting in my right ankle to above the knee and in my lungs - sitting too long at the computer I suppose. I started back at the gym in April and changed fr

I had that happen to me. Clot was from my knee to groin. I had to have 3 stents in my iliac vein, it had collapsed.

marivan v coumadin
Avoid eating foods that contains potassium and nitrates bec these thiccken the blood. avoid eating salty foods bec salt retains water in our body that make our heart hard to pump more blood in and out of the heart. Salt makes the heart weaker.

Now . I have had aortic and mitral valves replaced. I don't eat foods that make my INR raise to a level of more than 3. My range should be bet. 2.5 to3. Green leafy veg. And beer. Wine and liquor will lower the INR that will make the blood thicker. Avoid these foods and drinks.

Hi Mike. I'm from the Philippines but I live in California . I have had my surgery in 2010 valves (metallic) replacement I'm taking warfarin 2mg a day. Lisonopril metoprolol simbastatin and and baby aspirin 81 mg. I do have blood check every 3 weeks. Sometimes my INR are so low that I need to increase my Coumadin .at present it's so high that I need to lower my Coumadin. It's really hard to be in this situation because of high cause of medicine, doctors and nurse that I pay. This for life no
