Edoxaban Switch

There is an Integrated Care Board (ICB) initiative to gradually change suitable patients with Atrial fibrillation on a DOAC anticoagulant to the first line DOAC Edoxaban.  Your Apixiban/Rivaroxaban should be stopped before the Edoxaban is started and not be taken on the same day.  If a clinician believes that this is appropriate for your health care they will discuss this with you and you will receive a text with the following leaflet attached to the text.
