Breathlessness After Taking Xarelto For Two Months

I switched from Warfarin to Xarelto two months ago as I was suffering severe hair loss. All was well until very recently as I have experienced moderate breathlessness. I have atrial fibrillation, LBBB, mild left ventricular impairment and thyroid problems. I have never suffered breathlessness previously and would be interested to find out if anyone else has experienced this whilst taking Xarelto.

Yes. I have experienced breathlessness in the 6 months since I began xarelto and it has changed my life for the worse. I have mitral valve regurgitation and paroximal atrial fibrillation. Since beginning I have also experienced increased sweating with itching pimples and dizziness. Additionally I had a bad fall and broke a bone in both hands and tore the miniscus in my knee. The doctors ignore the effect of these symptoms. I hope your's listens and doesn't discount what you say.

Hi Susan,
Thank you for your answer. I wonder if your falling and injuring your knees could be due to your feeling dizzy. I have experienced slight dizziness and stumbling which wasn't present whilst I was taking Warfarin. There are sites which gives details of side effects of Xaralto (numbers of people/their ages/duration of side effect) which I have found helpful. Most side effects affect people over 65 - I am nearly 66 - and usually stop after six months. It is encouraging to learn that Xaralto side effects are rare but that doesn't make them any easier to live with! I've decided to stick with Xaralto for six months unless the breathlessness and dizzy spells become too extreme. Take care and I hope that your symptoms will lessen soon.

I have been on Xarelto for almost a year and am having a hard time breathing when up and about. Scares me like crazy. Why is there no experienced doctor on board with this drug that has two BLACK BOX warnings??

Was on xarelto for 6 months April-October 2016 for dvt after back surgery .. Gained 30 lbs of fluid retention... Lost it finally by drinking lemon water... Still Have the breathlessness especially when trying to do anything and heart rate speeds up dramatically... Also tremors... Just found out from my gastroenterologist my TSH is easy low and my T4 is way high... So I guess I have developed hyperthyroidism... Am seriously wondering if it is related to the xarelto.
