Patient Comments: Antiphospholipid Syndrome - Effective Treatments

What kinds of treatment have been effective for your antiphospholipid syndrome?

Comment from: Martha, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: October 15

I have been diagnosed with Primary Antiphospholipid Syndrome since over 10 years back. I am required to be put in the hospital and put on heparin which I believe has been the best medication until I return to a 3.0 to 4.0 INR. It usually takes 10 to 14 days in the hospital to achieve this point.
