Hello, Sharon! How are you?

You should check with your doctor, before taking anything, but you should be okay to take Tylenol. Just not any of the NSAIDs, such as Advil or Aleve, since they can increase the risk of bleeding.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Xarelto as possibly including nausea, dizziness, joint/muscle aches and easy bruising.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thank you for the response Verwon. I do have a couple of other questions. I'm chronically anemic and have heavy menstrual cycles. I am taking lots of iron to try and prevent having to have a blood transfusion if my period is heavier due to taking Xarelto. My doctor says it's ok to take the extra iron. Do you know if there are any contraindications to this? Do you have anyone who has reported very heavy periods while on Xarelto?

Sharon, you do need to be careful how much extra iron you take. Too much of it can lead to hemochromatosis, which could result in liver failure and death. If nothing else, then make sure your doctor checks your levels every few months, via a blood sample.

And yes, there have been several women that have reported heavier periods, while taking this medication.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

Hello, I am on Xarelto at 10mg/day and take two 225mg Aleve three time per week before playing tennis doubles for two hours. I have been doing this for more than four months with no side effects. I am 78 years old. Doctor said it would be okay.
