Hi. I am a 65 year old female and I have been taking Rivaroxaban 20mg daily for 6 weeks now (because I have atrial fibrillation). Apart from feeling a little more tired than usual, I have been suffering with nausea since starting the meds. For ladies on this forum, it feels like pregnancy morning sickness, a sort of low-grade 'yukky' feeling but with no actual vomiting. I would be interested to hear whether anyone else is experiencing this symptom.

Hello, Marianne! How are you?

As reported by the U.S. FDA, it is known to cause various gastro-intestinal issues as side effects. You may also experience dizziness, headache, constipation, abdominal pain and dry mouth.

Can any other women that have taken it chime in with their experiences?

When I started on Xarelto I had extreme nausea but after some investigation I discovered that it was best to take it after dinner. I did this and within a few days the nausea was gone. Unfortunately I also have issues with joint pain in the hips groin and knee, as well as swelling (fluid retention) and itching in the legs

Re: Esther (# 2)

I have been taking Rivaroxaban for 5 weeks following the discovery of several pulmonary embolisms in my lung after knee replacement.
I am suffering severe nausea & after accidentally missing a dose yesterday I seem to have proved that Rivaroxaban is the culprit.
I am also suffering intense pain 24/7 in my replaced knee which my consultant puts down to bleeding in the knee caused by the Rivaroxaban.
I am hoping there is an alternative as I am probably going to need blood thinning medication long term as I suffer from atrial fibrillation.

I too am on Riveroxiban for A fib but at this point I am so tired of the side effects e.g. joint pain in hips legs and back with edema and swelling in the legs that I am looking into an ablation and hopefully getting off of this med. To be honest I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I had none of these problems before being put on this drug because of a fib.
