I took 15 mg for 21 days. Then doc wrote script for 6 mos of 15 mg again. I thought it was supposed to go up to 20 mg once a day. Does anyone ever take just 15 mg for the six month following the inital dosage?

Hello, Judy! How are you?

Actually, it depends what you're taking it to treat, in some cases the patient should remain on the 15mg dosage, but in others, they should be raised to 20mgs.

What condition are you being treated for?

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Xarelto as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising.

I am on Xarelto 15mgs for three weeks. I recently tapered to 20mgs once a day. My leg continues to swell during the day but not while I sleep nor early morning when I wake up. My concern is the swelling during the day and the feeling of it being hot.
