Xarelto is an oral medication used to prevent blood clots and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). As an anticoagulant drug, Xarelto blocks proteins that cause clotting. It may be given after surgery to prevent blood clots, or to prevent stroke in people with a heart rhythm disorder called atrial fibrillation.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Xarelto exactly as prescribed.
- Xarelto comes in 10 mg, 15 mg, and 20 mg strengths, which your doctor will prescribe based on age and medical condition.
- Do not stop taking Xarelto suddenly. Xarelto should be tapered off slowly to avoid increased risk of clotting.
Avoid taking other anti-coagulants or NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen) unless directed by your doctor. These can increase the risk of bleeding.
Before taking Xarelto, inform your doctor if you have:
- Bleeding disorders or history of stroke
- Spinal defects, history of spinal surgery, or recent spinal tap/catheter
- Take NSAID drugs or other anti-coagulant drugs
- High blood pressure
- Liver or kidney disease
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
Common side effects of Xarelto include:
- Back and muscle pain
Xarelto increases your risk of bleeding. Pay attention for signs of bleeding, and contact your doctor if you have any of the following:
- Bloody or black stools
- Bleeding gums
- Coughing up blood
- Red or dark brown urine
- Vomiting blood
- Cuts or wounds that won’t stop bleeding
Does Xarelto come with any dietary restrictions?
Unlike other anti-clotting drugs, Xarelto doesn’t come with any dietary restrictions.
What if I run out of Xarelto?
It’s important to have your prescription refilled on time. Stopping Xarelto suddenly may increase your risk of having a blood clot or stroke.
What if I’m going to have dental surgery?
Talk to your doctor and dentist or oral surgeon before undergoing any dental surgery. They may wish to temporarily taper your Xarelto dose before the procedure to prevent uncontrolled bleeding.
