Forced To Stop Xarelto

JD Says:

After 4 months of being on xarelto for pulmonary embolism was taken off the med due to bleeding. I was also taken off my normal 81 mg. aspirin which I take for heart disease. Neither my hemotologist, cardiologist, nor my gastro doc, (Crohn's disease ) have suggested I take an X-ray to determine if the clots are still there. This is very vexing. I am 67, athletic, trim and eat healthy. Anyone else experience similar situations?

Sorry to hear about the bleeding on Xarelto. I did notice that bleeding was listed as a general side effect on, but I suppose that can be a pretty common occurrence with these types of medications in general. All I can say is that if it were me facing a similar situation, I'd put an emphasis on getting that X-ray done for the sole sake of having that confirmation/validation. They wouldn't otherwise be able to understand how your body might be reacting after discontinuing 4 months of a potentially dangerous drug like Xarelto; especially since it isn't working in your body anymore on a regular basis to thin out blood.

Would anyone else like to expand on this?

David, thank you very much for your reply. I did recall asking my doc but her answer was somewhat nebulous. I'll see her soon so I'll be more direct this time.

These drugs work by blocking pathways in the coagulation cascade and don't break up existing clots. For existing clots your best trying proteolytic enzymes such as wobenzyme or lumbrokinase etc. But its best not to take these enzymes whilst your on these anticoags.
