Coumadin is much cheaper than Pradaxa, its a pain having to go to the lab all the time but its much safer and easier to take. I recently got my own home INR testing machine which I test with a finger stick at home. doc gets results and they tell me my dose by phone. Cost me peanuts compared to Pradaxa. My insurance covers the monitor and my warfarin routin doesnt change but now I dont have to go to the lab every week, check out ptinr.com, it has an awsome vitaminK registry which i use for my cooking. I eat whatever i want in moderation an MD gets my results.
