Savaysa (Edoxaban Tosilate) from Maple Leaf Medications.
( Top Brand Option )
What is Savaysa used for?
This oral drug is an anticoagulant medication. Savaysa’s generic name is edoxaban. This medication reduces the risk of fatal systemic embolism, heart attack, and stroke brought on by nonvalvular atrial fibrillation by keeping red blood cells from adhering to one another and forming clots.
Moreover, after being treated for 5 to 10 days with an injectable blood thinner, this medication treats blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism/PE) or veins in the legs (deep vein thrombosis/DVT).
How does Savaysa work?
Blood clots are formed in any blood vessel in the body, which is an essential process that prevents excessive bleeding. Even though clotting is a normal bodily function, some conditions can cause blood to clot when it should not, and it can be in the lungs, heart, brain, or other areas of the body. These clots may cause catastrophic complications, such as heart attack and stroke if they obstruct the blood supply to these vital organs.
When Savaysa is taken correctly and absorbed into the bloodstream, it blocks factor Xa, an enzyme complex in the clotting cascade. As a result, it decreases the blood’s ability to clot, which lowers the risk of stroke or heart attack by preventing deadly clots from developing in the blood vessels.
The dosage and frequency of this blood thinner medication differ from one person to another. It will depend on the severity of the patient’s condition and tolerance to the regimen. This medication is available in tablet formulations with 30 and 60 mg strength.
The recommended dose to treat and prevent clot formation is Savaysa 60 mg once a day. Make sure not to exceed your intake without consulting your doctor to thwart unwanted side effects of this drug.
