Leg pain and weight gain after 7 months on Xarelto
4 Replies RSS
I still have leg pain every now and then with xarelto. I have also gain 13 lbs within 5 month period while exercising. Has anyone else had these kinds of issues? ## Unfortunately yes! Such complaints are being posted more and more often in relation to this medication. The leg pain is a listed side effect, but the weight gain is not, however, that doesn't necessarily mean that it's unrelated. Have you consulted your doctor, yet? It would be best to be safe and let them check things out, before you pinpoint the drug as being the sole cause. ## May I ask why you started taking Xarelto? If it was because of a DVT, you probably are experiencing Post Thrombotic Syndrome when your leg with have intense pain from time to time. Try wearing a compression sock daily and elevating your leg ...

Xarelto and weight gain
38 Replies RSS
I have been on 15mg of Xarelto along with 40mg of Crestor for approximatley 8 months and have suffered through a distended abdomen and burning and aching in my hips, legs and feet. After blood tests and scans ruled out anything sinister I chose to stop taking Crestor altogether. Within a week my abdomen was no longer distented and much of the pain in my hips and legs reduced to a point where I actually got some sleep. I have now started back doing my walking and concentrating on eating everything right but my weight inexplicably is going up and up. I have also noticed my tension type headache and tinnitus which I have had both for 11 years has intensified and difficult to ignore. I can only think the weight gain can be caused by Xarelto...there seems to be no other explanation and I hav...

Stopping Xarelto
45 Replies RSS
I have been instructed to stop my 20mg a day after being on it for 6 months (2 PE's one in each lung at Xmas) and I have to say I am really worried and every little pain I think its come back. I have another 3 weeks to go until I got for a blood test to see if I am prone to clots however I am completely paranoid. Anyone else had the same feelings....as the meds have been my comfort blanket for so long..... ## Have you had a hypercoagulability test? Mine revealed a Factor B Leiden gene mutation, so I will never stop taking blood thinners. If you can have that blood test, it will let you know if you have a tendency to clot. ## Do you mean Factor V Leiden? Been on 20 mg Xarelto since march 2014. Had double pneumonia in jan 2014 accompanied by DVT which threw clots to my lungs. In hospt...

Extreme fatigue on Xarelto
24 Replies RSS
Hello, Hope someone can help. I've been hitting a wall of fatigue everyday about 1pm to the point where I need to take a 2 hour nap when my daughter is napping and its painful to wake up even after that. I take Xarelto everyday with dinner to treat a DVT. I've been on it 4 months. Is this a known side effect? I tested my theory when I started to realize this began after taking Xarelto and skipped a dose one evening. The following day I didn't need a nap and didnt have that same debilitating exhaustion. I'm only 34 this is no time to be this tired after a full nights sleep! It feels like a crash, an unnatural exhaustion. Thanks! AS ## Hi! Sorry about the problem that you're having. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a lot of side effect information on this...

1 Reply RSS
I've noticed i have a blotchy rash on my left calf that has the clot. Is that anyway related to the clots or the Xaralto? I also noticed my voice is hoarse,is that a side effect of the medication? ## Hello, Lori! How are you? The rash is a listed side effect, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and easy bruising. However, hoarseness is not, though it does list dry throat and sore throat, which could be causing it. Either way, just in case your having an allergic reaction, you should have these checked out, to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with?

Clexane / Xarelto and fatigue or tiredness
2 Replies RSS
Hi everyone.. I injured my knee (patellar dislocation + meniscal tear) during martial arts practice and developed a DVT. The DVT was diagnosed approximately 20 hours after the incident but the circulation and swelling problem had started half an hour of the incident. So, from the blood work, i do not have any predisposition that could cause blood clots. Also, I am a very active person and used to train 6 days a week. I was on clexane 100mg daily for 10 days and conducted a second doppler evaluation. The clot was occlusive and 15cm long in the first place, and it became non-occlusive dvt in 10 days of clexane. I am not sure whether or not it shortened the length of the clot, but all the symptoms of DVT disappeared within 20 days. So after the 1st treatment, I was again on clexane for day...

how long does xarelto remain in your blood stream
1 Reply RSS
I'm experiencing bleeding from rectal blood in stool. Every time I use the restroom for the last week there's been blood in my stool, dark red spots of blood. ## Hello, Jake! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. If it is due to the Xarelto, it could take a week or two to fully stop and for things to return to normal. However, as listed by the NIH, there are other problems that could be cause this, so should make sure that you consult your doctor, for your own safety. Has there been a lot, or just small random spots?

What do you think about the swelling? ## Hello, Delores! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the health issues that you're experiencing. Yes, as reported by the FDA, Xarelto has been known to cause or worsen edema, in some people that take it.
