One thing to consider is that studies demonstrating interaction between the DOAC and AED drug classes have been performed in healthy volunteers, making it difficult to extrapolate how this interaction may increase the risk for thrombotic events in other patients.
6) Patients taking such agents could theoretically have decreased exposure to the DOAC, resulting in an increase in thromboembolic risk.
9] With the introduction of new DOACs
it will be important to obtain baseline data on VTE prevalence, diagnosis and treatment in order to evaluate the benefit of these anticoagulants in an era of high HIV and TB prevalence and incidence.
require measurement of their anticoagulant effect in special situations (50).
This kind of 'less is more' approach includes avoiding prescribing DOACs
rather than VKAs without clear, compelling, evidence-based reasons; regularly reassessing renal function; monitoring for adverse effects; and reappraising aspirin prescription.

don't require monitoring, either, so taking them doesn't require much thought.
Clinical situations in which the measurement of DOAC
anticoagulant activity is potentially useful When stable anticoagulation is achieved (1-2 weeks after initiation) Before surgical or other invasive procedures Adverse events (haemorrhage or thrombosis) Before and after introducing additional drugs which are known to interact Extremes of body mass index Suspected overdose When bridging from one anticoagulant to another To assess compliance To exclude drug accumulation in the elderly To assess pharmacological activity, i.
The incidence of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism was either the same or better for each of the 3 DOAC
treatments than for warfarin (DOACs
A meta-analysis of the 4 phase III trials of the DOACs
, this time involving 58,338 patients, evaluated DOAC

are at least as effective as warfarin at preventing stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation and may even be safer.
