Rivaroxaban & Pregnancy!

CWB Says:


My wife has just fallen pregnant (4 weeks) and has been on Rivaroxaban as she was diagnosed with PE. This wasn't planned but we are now in a real dilemma as to what to do next. The drug is apparently toxic and it's not known what the effects could have on the baby. From what I've found, evaluations have been done on rats and there is talk of the drug affecting fetal development but not much else. It doesn't give percentages, if it can be reversed etc.

Really desperate for any advice whatsoever, if anyone has any info on anyone that has given birth whilst using the drug through early stages of pregnancy, that would be huge information BUT I realize there is a low chance of receiving this info. Again, any research, or info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Has she informed her doctor?

The FDA places this medication in pregnancy category C, which means that risk cannot be ruled out.

However, in early pregnancy, the risk of harm is much lower than at later stages, when the baby is more fully developed, thus stopping it now and switching to something else could help minimize any potential harm.

The typical side effects of this medication may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising.
