Bevyxxa Will Join Other Anticoagulant Meds on Your Shelf

You may see some patients get Bevyxxa (beh-VYKE-sah, betrixaban), a new direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC), after hospital discharge.

It's not used the same way as other DOACs...Pradaxa (dabigatran), Xarelto (rivaroxaban), Eliquis (apixaban), or Savaysa (edoxaban).

Bevyxxa is only approved to PREVENT blood clots in the leg or lungs in certain hospitalized adults with multiple risk factors...such as reduced mobility plus older age and heart failure.
