Got one month to before my 90 days on xarelto is over. I have been experiencing severe pain in my knees, ankles, hips and elbows. Never had this pain prior to the medication. Doctor shrugged off my concerns. I really need to know if this will stop after I am done xarelto.

Hello, Chelle! How are you doing? Has there been any change?

Many people have reported experiencing various body aches and pains, while taking Xarelto, and these symptoms are listed as possible side effects in the FDA patient advisory leaflet. It may also cause dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising.

However yes, such symptoms usually go away, once the medication is discontinued, but it may take a few weeks for them to fully abate.

If they are really severe, you should inform your doctor, as there are other medications you can try.

After 3 weeks off xarelto, my joint pain has completely disappeared. It had gotten so bad that I could barely stand and now I am pain free. Only change was xarelto so I am convinced this was the culprit and disappointed that both doctors and the drug company dismissed the link between this drug and severe joint pain.

I want to know WHY every doctor ignores this pain we are all getting with Xarelto? Hospital orders? Big Pharma orders?

Re: Chelle (# 2)

Same identical problem with me. Ankle so full of pain that I could barely hobble around. Ran out of Xarelto & only 1 week later I'm pain free for the 1st time in almost a year after I started taking it. I KNOW it was Xarelto.
