Switching from Warfarin to Eliquis
I am switching from Warfarin to Eliquis and picked up my first bottle of Eliquis at the pharmacy today. The instructions I have read online at numerous sites just say: "Warfarin should be discontinued and Eliquis started when the international ratio (INR) is below 2.0."
My interpretation is this: Stop Warfarin completely. Wait 3 (more or less) days and have an INR test. If INR score is below 2.0, start the Eliquis. If it hasn't fallen below 2.0, wait a few more days and have a retest done.
Hoping someone out there will know if my interpretation is correct.
