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!

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 drug, yet.

Learn more Xarelto details here.

I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you.

Have you consulted your doctor? They may know more about why it's doing that.

I have the same problem. I started taking Xarelto just over a week ago. I broke my hip in an accident and need to be on a blood thinner for another 3 weeks. I normally sleep 4-6 hours a day. I now sleep around 12 hours a day. It is very frustrating.

I can be having a conversation with someone and an overwhelming tired feeling washes over me and I end up taking a 3 hour nap.

This is my biggest complaint. I am 36 years old and I am so exhausted. My eyes just want to close. I take my pill at 9 am every day and thought about switching to evening to see if it would help. It's very frustrating because I am an active person with no energy.

I just started taking Xarelto myself about 3 weeks ago and I am always exhausted. I'll wake up feeling exhausted, but by early afternoon I'm really tired and need to sit down and relax. It's almost like a mild flu-ish feeling. I too feel like falling asleep around 7 or 8 at night and many time during the day as well - I just can't seem to stay awake.

It does getter better. I switched to evenings and this helped tremendously. (about 8pm every night) I took it for 7 months and finally stopped last week. I've noticed a difference already in my energy level. Hope you feel better soon!

I started taking Xarelto after 3 blood clots appeared in my lungs after having surgery for 3 ankle fractures in January 2015. I've noticed extreme fatigue and a rise in my blood sugar levels as well as a rise in my blood pressure. I am due to stop in July of 2015 and truly hope I get back to normal. I think the side effects of this drug are awful. I'll let you know how things turn out when I stop taking this drug.

same results. Sometimes the effects are worse than the problem. I have also experienced severe fatigue. Had to quit work. I could sleep all afternoon if I lay down. very frustrating. My internist suggested I remain on Xarelto for life as I developed an unprovoked DVT and small PE> She is not that keen on letting me off as I have been on it 6 months and feels I should be on for life. I need to make a decision on quality of life

My husband is now taking this around 8pm each night. The fatigue during the day has been reduced greatly and he has been able to continue working pretty much full time. Wondering if Vit B shots are safe with this. We still are hoping this med is not life long for him. Many questions will be asked of the dr at his next checkup!

Ive been on xarelto for 14 months from a PE and due to a autoimmune that makes my blood clot, so i have to be on it for life. My first 6 months on this med was amazing, i had so much energy i chalked it up to never having correct blood flow from my auto-immune. But after the first 6 months i now feel extreme fatigue, joint and muscle aches like you wouldn't believe, headaches too. As you may know we are not allowed to take anti-inflammatory meds so i have no way to ease my pain and i am so frustrated by this that i want to get off xarelto even though dr.s say no. Can anyone relate?

I am also on Xarelto, have been for 45 days now. I'm a super active person but I just feel tired all the time! I have a clot in my knee and calf do to a vein ablation I had done in March. I went in today for an ultrasound and no improvement. How long will this go on for?

Yes, I have been on Xarelto and experienced extreme fatigue. In my case, we were able to switch to another blood thinner, Lovanox, which in my case is daily and in shot form. While I do not like the shot it is preferred over extreme fatigue. Ask your physician about possible other choices and good luck!
