Suggest Xarelto Over Pradaxa for Treating VTE

The newer oral anticoagulants (Eliquis, Pradaxa, and Xarelto) will be used more to TREAT venous thromboembolism (VTE).

Xarelto, and now Pradaxa, are approved to treat VTE in Canada...and Eliquis is also approved for this use in the U.S.

Most patients with a VTE get a low-molecular-weight heparin (enoxaparin, etc) for several days until warfarin kicks in.
