It’s hard to say which one is the best, since different people react differently toward the same medicine. Warfarin (Coumadin) is generally the safest anticoagulant, but some people bleed because of using it. Some of the newly-approved anticoagulants are more effective, while they are also more dangerous. These drugs include dabigatran etexilate, sold as Pradaxa®; rivaroxaban, Xarelto®; apixaban, Eliquis®; and edoxaban, Savaysa®. For people who bleed with all the above medicines, aspirin is their choice. Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=40 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=42 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1239
