My girl has had a couple of Blood clots and has been told they are as a result of a condition called Factor 5 Laden (sp?). She has been taking warfarin for about 3 years now and the dosage seems to be rising slowly. She is only 25 and is now up to 12mg a day.
I am interested in if there are any better options or alternatives.
I have seen a bunch of studies saying that warfarin is fine but they are all resonably short studies (5 years max) and low dosage for the elderly.
Would be particularly interested in hearing Dr D's opinion on this.
