MedHead Confidence Score: 5
Amount Saved: $430 per month cost for Xarelto
If you are being treated for a blood clot in your leg (deep vein thrombosis), or a blood clot in your heart (pulmonary embolus), then there is no difference in outcomes with warfarin v. Xarelto. That’s over $5,000 savings per year. That’s nice! Now go visit Nice (France)!
