Hello to anyone interested. I have been taking Xarelto for 3 months. 20mg once a day for DVT and P.E's post knee replacement. Started searching for possible effects of the drug and have found that many people seem to have similar side effects to mine. First surprise was sudden nose bleeds. Was warned that I may get a rash or itches, and I certainly do. Bruising for no apparent reason also and increased back pain (although to be fair I do have severe spinal issues) but probably the most annoying thing is very loud ringing in my ears (tinnitus), more so in one side. I'm pretty sure that we are not just imagining this stuff folks, and for those professionals that downplay the tinnitus, it is no joke! It is making life quite difficult. Head aches (some quite severe) are also a problem however I'm not sure if that is a product of the drug or the tinnitus.

Regards and/or condolences to any other sufferers.

Hello and yes I do have the side effect of Tinnitus and it is annoying and has affected the way I hear things people say to me. I also have back and muscle aches. I have had headaches as well. But I keep telling myself be happy to be alive and well after succumbing to multiple bilateral PE's. I have been on Xarelto 1.5 years. Take good care:)

Re: Truthfully yours (# 1)

I have been on xarelto for a couple of months now, I also have ringing in my ears and it’s loud, I have blurred vision to the point I can barely see, and eyes are constantly watering, and it’s not allergies, I have dry eyes but its never ever been this bad,I’m weak, so very tired, and legs hurt right foot and ankle swells bad. I have had these symptoms before on other medications but never this bad. I’m 74 and like the other lady I’m ready to stop xarelto or any other blood thinners. Same goes for B P medicine toprol xl.

Headache is listed as a normal side effect of this medication in the details provided by Medline Plus. Tinnitus has been found among those that take it, it could be worsened by the headaches, or vice-versa.

Are you on any other medications? You might need to try something else, if this one is making you that miserable.

Beverly, I wouldn't advise stopping any medications, without your doctor's approval. There are others you can try, if these ones are making you miserable. It took me about a year to find medications I could take for my high blood pressure and heart condition, without being miserable. It is sometimes just a matter of trial and error. Are these the only ones you take?

I took Xaralto for 8 weeks and was only on that drug when I developed tinnitus in 1 ear.
