Direct acting anticoagulant drugs [DOACs], consisting of apixaban, dabigatran, edoxaban and rivaroxaban have been available for various indications for 3year [edoxaban] up to over a decade [dabigatran and rivaroxaban]. These medicines have shown good clinical efficacy and are usually well tolerated compared to vitamin K antagonists or low molecular weight heparins. Because none of the DOACs is available as a generic formulation, their relatively high price is a disadvantage compared to vitamin K antagonists.
