Thank you for the information
Thank you for the information, as of right now I have no idea what they are going to want to prescribe/do about it. I do know Warfarin is fine on the epilepsy medication I take so we will see where this goes.

Hey Joshua, I was diagnosed
Hey Joshua, I was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden several years ago. My father has it and his father had it also. One thing I can offer is DO NOT let them put you on Xarelto. I was on it for a year and developed clots in both legs and one in my lung, so we switched to Warfarin. I don't know what kind of insurance you have, but mine allows me to have a home monitor to do my pt/inr at home and only need to go into the office once a month, as opposed to once or twice per week. Good luck!!!
