Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs)

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are recently approved medication for the prevention and treatment of blood clots. They are taken orally once or twice a day. These drugs were designed to replace Warfarin. These drugs are very similar in effectiveness and safety to the traditional therapy, but are more convenient. They do not require blood monitoring and have fewer interactions with food and drugs compared to Warfarin.

Three DOACs are currently available in Canada. For more information, please click on the PDF links below.
