A member asked:

Does coumadin (warfarin) make you extremely fatigued? is there a medication that is a blood thinner but you don't need an inr check?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Rivaroxaban.: Coumadin (warfarin) does not make you extremely fatigued unless you're anemic from occult bleeding because of a supratherapeutic (i.e., really high) inr. Make sure you stay on top of your inr and, if you're feeling really fatigued, to have your hemoglobin/hematocrit (which is your blood count) checked. Rivaroxaban is a blood thinner that doesn't require monitoring. Discuss with your pcp.
