Can I still have the injection if I am on blood thinning medications?


If you are on Warfarin your INR will have to be checked within 48 hours before having the injection and then rechecked within 72 hours post injection.

If you are on Rivaroxaban, Apixaban, Dabigatran or Edoxaban we would normally ask you to stop taking the medication 12 hours before having the injection, provided that your underlying condition is stable and your GP/Consultant is agreeable for the injection to take place.
