Anticoagulation guidelines for Factor Xa inhibitors

Post by lrowe » Thu Dec 06, 2018 4:24 pm

Are there any guidelines recommending a waiting period when a driver is started on a Factor Xa inhibitor such as Xarelto or Eliquis? At least a one month waiting period is recommended after Coumadin is first started. I realize that it depends on the diagnosis. For example, a driver with new onset A-fib, S/P ablation procedure, started on Xarelto and cleared by cardiologist to drive.
