Anticoagulant prescriptions

Around 22 million prescriptions for oral anticoagulants are written annually, with a reimbursement cost of over £850million (MAT to Oct'21).

Apixaban made up almost 50% of anticoagulant prescriptions in 2020-2021.

Two anticoagulants, rivaroxaban (Eliquis – Bristol-Myers Squibb) and apixaban (Xarelto – Bayer) are in the top ten prescribed drugs in England by cost.
