Xarelto (rivaroxaban) for Blood thinner

XARELTO (rivaroxaban tablets) is a prescription medicine used to help prevent blood clots from forming in patients after hip or knee replacement surgery.

XARELTO is a type of medicine known as a blood thinner. It works by reducing the body’s ability to form blood clots.

Like all blood thinners, XARELTO® can cause bleeding. This bleeding can sometimes be serious. It is important to know what the signs of bleeding are and what to do when it happens

XARELTO SIDE EFFECTS
XARELTO may increase your chance of bleeding. This bleeding can sometimes be serious (and even life-threatening)

In studies, side effects with XARELTO included fluid leakage from a wound, itching, pain in arms or legs, blisters, fainting, and muscle spasm.

Discuss any side effects with your doctor. You are also encouraged to report side effects to the FDA: visit http://www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088. You may also report side effects to Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., at 1-800-JANSSEN (526-7736)

WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE XARELTO?
Tell your doctor if you have:
Unusual bleeding
Ever had an allergic-type (hypersensitivity) reaction to XARELTO®

I started XARELTO on 2-8-12 and on 2-14-12 I was awakened by severe pain in my chest, sweating profusely and pain in my arms and legs. I thought I was having a heart attack. I went to doctor and did a chest xray, ekg and CT of lungs and cardiac enzymes. All tests were negative. I was put on Xarelto following hip surgery on 2-8-12. I stopped taking it after having this side effects.

I’ve been on Xeralto for A-Fib since Dec 8, 2011 (now may 31, 2012) and have on and off sense of malaise and fatigue, tingling feet, low RBC-anemic. When it hits, I can’t drive or function very well. The docs think it’s from a TIA I had Dec 8th but others think it might be the Xeralto. The doc (who put me on Xeralto) said Coumadin has worse side effects but I’m not sure. has anyone switched and had those problems go away? (I was given Citralopram and then Zoloft but made it worse so quit.)

I’ve had sick spells and feet tingling since Dec 2011 taking Xarelto 20mg and was thinking of trying another blood thinner with no side effects. Is coumadin the best for regular testing? My doc said there’s no viscosity blood test for Xarelto etc and no anecdote. They’ve had me try various anti-depressants/anxiety drugs since December to no avail (since I was told the sick spells couldn’t be from Xarelto).

I’ve had open heart surgery, aorta valve replaced and 2 by-passes. Taking 15 mg of xarelto at evening dinner.Xarelta drug disclosure statement mentions extreme dizziness. I don’t get that but I do feel tired and light headed. I refuse to give in, I still work on my garden and vegetables, seems like I’m not tired when I work outside.
As to warfarin, I like xarelto because I can eat anything including vit. K produce from green vegetables and supplements of vit. K from high vitamin butter oil. Warfarin thins the blood, but it also calcifies your arteries. My wife has been on Warfarin for 6 years and when she gets her CT scans, they always mention she has “extensive arteriosclerosis.” That’s a problem I’m trying to avoid.

I was on warfarin 4 or 5 years but it kept seizing my shoulder up so go off and get another clot 6 altogether now. Eventually was put on Dindavan for 10 years with no side affects. Last year the hospital couldnt supply me so was put on injections for 4 months bad results from them also. A month and a half ago my Dr put me on Xarelto and the first month was okay but 2 weeks in and my arms to just below the elbow are killing me with pain. I cant lift one of them above my shoulder and the other is getting worse. Has anyone experienced similar symptoms

I was on coumidin for 4-5 yrs–I changed to Xeralto to avoid monthly testing–I was dizzy one day recently and get mind headaches recently–may go back to coumidin–ALL of these drugs have some side effects infortunately….
