Watch for Patients Skipping Refills on Their Blood Thinner Rxs

You'll see more focus on monitoring patients taking newer oral anticoagulant blood thinners...Eliquis, Pradaxa, or Xarelto.

These anticoagulants don't need monthly blood draws and clinic visits like warfarin...but they can still cause serious problems if used incorrectly.

Stay alert for adherence problems...since missing just one or two doses of an anticoagulant may increase the risk of having a clot.
