APS Awareness Month ~ Day 27: Have you heard about the new anticoagulants on the market? They may sound promising, however, NONE of them have been approved for #APS patients. Studies are in the works, though. In the meantime, please be an EDUCATED CONSUMER! APS patients ARE clotting on these drugs, not all but a lot, and there are no reversal drugs at this time. Sharing is caring! Please share this post and graphic on all social media platforms and don't forget to use hashtags #APSAWARENESS and #GOBURGUNDY when you do!
