Rivaroxaban review

Phone call from Pharmacist, deferred from 24/11.  No issues, just a bit of a tick sheet to complete.  Mainly interested in if I had had any bleeds and if I carry an anticoagulant card.

Checked the medical record, my Cockroft-Gault formula calculation (kidney effectiveness) is 90.47.  Google shows that this formula is no longer thought of as accurate or valid.  However, a typical result for a 53 year old man would be somewhere between 85 or 95 (possibly less; there is no reference to annual decline between the ages of 2 and 40) So it looks like my irrelevant and inaccurate test is good.
