Toothache & jaw pain from Xarelto?

I have been on 20 mg of Xarelto for about 2 weeks after a week of 30 mg. I have developed pain in my lower jaw. I have seen my dentist who took X-Rays and probed the area. Nothing wrong with my teeth or jaw. Has anyone else experienced this? One of the less common side effects noted on websites is toothache. ## Xarelto has been known to cause joint pain, in some people that take it, as a side effect, and if that is the case, that could also be causing the pain you're describing as a toothache. I have a disorder in my jaw joints called TMJ, and when it acts up, the pain is quite horrible, and I will often feel like I have a toothache, even though I no longer have any teeth to ache, because I have dentures. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change, since your body has adjuste...

Xarelto side effects

I have been taking Xarelto 15mg x2/day for almost 3 weeks and will go onto 20mg/day next week for the remainder of 3 months. I had a lower leg blood clot almost 3 wks ago. I have experienced some itching of my lower and upper legs and wonder whether it is something to worry about. I had thought that maybe the symptoms may relax when I go onto the lower dose. I chose Xeralto over Warfarin for the convenience of less blood checks and think I would prefer to remain on it. I have been unable to get through to the clinic or to speak to my doctor so will probably have to make an appointment but thought I would ask here and see if there was any advice available. I have also started with itching to one of my eyes yesterday though this may be due to a new cleanser which I have stopped using. Has...

Stopping Xarelto

I have been instructed to stop my 20mg a day after being on it for 6 months (2 PE's one in each lung at Xmas) and I have to say I am really worried and every little pain I think its come back. I have another 3 weeks to go until I got for a blood test to see if I am prone to clots however I am completely paranoid. Anyone else had the same feelings....as the meds have been my comfort blanket for so long..... ## Have you had a hypercoagulability test? Mine revealed a Factor B Leiden gene mutation, so I will never stop taking blood thinners. If you can have that blood test, it will let you know if you have a tendency to clot. ## Do you mean Factor V Leiden? Been on 20 mg Xarelto since march 2014. Had double pneumonia in jan 2014 accompanied by DVT which threw clots to my lungs. In hospt...

can xarelto cause weight loss

I have been taking xarelto for 5 months and have lost 28 pounds without any change in diet. It's not a bad thing as I needed to lose some weight. I am assuming it is from the drug. Has this happened to anyone else? ## Hi Rob, I haven't found any record of weight loss on Xarelto's list of side effects from the US National Institute of Health. However they do list "loss of appetite" which could inherently bring about weight loss... The only discrepancy here is that you said you didn't change your diet... So if you're not eating less (from a loss of appetite) then that is definitely a mystery to me... If anything, at least it's good to hear that the weight loss has been a welcomed side effect. I just hope it all balances out when you reach that comfortable s...

Extreme fatigue on Xarelto

Hello, Hope someone can help. I've been hitting a wall of fatigue everyday about 1pm to the point where I need to take a 2 hour nap when my daughter is napping and its painful to wake up even after that. I take Xarelto everyday with dinner to treat a DVT. I've been on it 4 months. Is this a known side effect? I tested my theory when I started to realize this began after taking Xarelto and skipped a dose one evening. The following day I didn't need a nap and didnt have that same debilitating exhaustion. I'm only 34 this is no time to be this tired after a full nights sleep! It feels like a crash, an unnatural exhaustion. Thanks! ## Hi! Sorry about the problem that you're having. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a lot of side effect information on this dr...

Side effects after switching from Xarelto to Eliquis

Since switching from xarelto to eliquis two years ago, I have been experiencing extreme bouts of sluggishness, itching and hives. Is that normal? ## I was switched to Eliquis low twice daily dose after 9 months on 20mg once daily Xarelto as i wanted to come off blood thinners altogether but specialist felt i was candidate for repeat blood clots due to age and other health factors. Dreadful experience - only on Eliquis 3 days before side effects of intense pins and needles all over body, pounding head, made me stop them. Back to Xarelto at specialist's insistence. Lesser side effects on Xarelto but still unhappy with feelings of weakness in legs, muddled thinking, loss of balance. Finally stopped Xarelto last month (my choice, not specialist's) and have slowly regained balance an...

Xarelto side effects. (tinnitus and more)

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 probl...

Xarelto, Side Effects

I am 36 years old with PE, multiple clots in both lungs, blockage to right valve of heart and DVT in left leg. I have no medical issues ever. My PE was diagnosed 3 weeks ago. My doctor put me on Xarelto. I am still on the 21 day, 15mg, 2x a day. I am lethargic, vomiting, severe night sweating, dizziness, blood in my stool, insane MIGRAINES and back aches. The bleeding side effects have landed me in the ER, 3x already. I really cant qualify which side effect is hitting me the worst. On top of it all this drug costs $316 a month and I am uninsured but employed. My financial status and insurance disqualify me for the free Xarelto plans. My doctors really believe this drug will most effectively and conveniently dissolve my clots. Can you offer a solution for free or discount Xarelto RX? Wil...

Side Effects of Xarelto--Permanent?

I was put on Xarelto 12 days ago, one 20mg pill per day for afib. Within 48 hours I started noticing lower back pain that's become progressively worse. Never having taken a blood thinner like this before, I'd like to know if anyone else has had this side effect with Xarelto, and if so, does it eventually go away as your body gets used to the medication? The last couple of days I can barely walk at times. If this is a permanent effect I can't stay on this med and function. I have no other side effects and wouldn't even know I was taking it otherwise. I do feel a lot better on it than not, which is why I hope this is temporary. ## Yes, it has been known to cause joint/muscle aches as side effects, according to FDA and user reports, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, i...

Side Effect on Xarelto about Weight Gain

I have been on Xarelto for about a month and my weight went up 25 to 30 lbs. Before I was on Xarelto I was taking Warfin and I was gaining any extra weight. I haven't been prescripted nor taken any other medications then the medications that has prescripted to me. I would like to know is there anyone else having this problem. ## Hi Tammy, Even though weight gain is not actually listed as being a possible side effect, I've actually been seeing quite a few posts from other individuals tracing it back to Xarelto as well. Unfortunately I find that in these types of cases, it seems like the only other options are to make more drastic changes to your diet; exercise harder/longer; or just stop taking what's triggering it to begin with. If you don't want to go that route, you ca...

Xarelto and Vitamins?

Was prescribed Xarelto 15 mg 2x daily two weeks ago for blood clot in the leg. I would like to keep taking the viamins/ supplements that I always took before this - I.e., B complex, Vit. C 1000 mg, Calcium/Magnesium, Vit D 2000 IU, Co-enzyme Q 10 200 mg, Biosil and Lutein. My doc said "no", but didn't tell me why not. Can't find any info anywhere to determine abiut this. Xarelto manufacturer has no info on package insert. Pharmacist doesn't seem to know either. I have read on another website that apparently the maket did not test for interactions w. vitamins, so they don't know. Does anyone here have any futher info regarding this? I feel that I really need to be taking my vitamins! ## Hello, Claire! How are you? Some vitamins can cause blood thinning and other m...

xarelto fatigue

I've been on xarelto for 2 months following dvt in my leg. I take 20 mg a day. In addition to almost constant headaches I now feel faint, tired, and my pinky finger feels numb. I really do not feel well. I would like to switch to Coumadin which I took many years ago after my first dvt and pe. Any one else experience similar symptoms? ## Hello, Jojo! How are you? Yes, many people have experience such side effects from Xarelto and they are listed among those that are commonly expected by the FDA. You may also experience joint/muscle aches, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising. However, Coumadin risks causing very similar side effects, plus it requires the regular INR testing, which you don't have to do with Xarelto. How long you will be taking it? ## Can you take vitamin B...

XARELTO/BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS/FATIGUE

My father went down hill fast after being on xarelto for 4 months, he has debilitating fatigue. he can no longer stand with out help. he has been in the hospital twice in 2 months and each time had to have a transfusion of 2 units of whole blood each time. My question is this: Will the fatigue and internal bleeding stop after he stops taking xarelto. ## Hello, Scott! How is your dad doing? Yes, they should stop, after he switches to a different medication. It sounds like this just isn't the right one for him to take. It is an anticoagulant, so it can increase the risk of bleeding and many people taking it have complained about the fatigue. Has he spoken to his doctor about it? ## I've been feeling tired and emotional could this be from Xarelto? ## May be. I got very teary when I...

How long does Xarelto continue working in your system?

I was on xarelto for 1 month. I was taking 20 mg for a blood clot that developed from my mediport. The med caused me to itch so bad that I was switched to lovenox inj's. After three day of being on the lovenox I am still itching. It has mainly been my hands and my feet. How long do these medications work in your system for? ## Hello, Teresa! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. If you were on the Xarelto for a month, it could take a week or so for the side effects and reaction to stop. However, you should be aware that the Lovenox could also cause itching, as a side effect, along with dizziness, headache and easy bruising. In many cases, it's due to the change it makes to your circulation. The same can occur with other medications that affect your...

how long does xarelto remain in your blood stream

I'm experiencing rectal bleeding with blood in my stool. Every time I use the restroom for the last week there's been blood in my stool, dark red spots of blood. ## Hello, Jake! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. If it is due to the Xarelto, it could take a week or two to fully stop and for things to return to normal. However, as listed by the NIH, there are other problems that could be cause this, so should make sure that you consult your doctor, for your own safety. Has there been a lot, or just small random spots? ## I was on Xarelto for 15 months but I had a bad fall and I had to stop because I can't stop bleeding from my vaginal area and it's been 3 weeks. Thank you. I'm 66 years old. ## I take 20mg each day for blood thinning i...

stopping xarelto due to bleeding

A fall produced a cut and abrasion. Bled for 5 days so stopped xarelto 15 mg/day. Had taken for 4 months for DVT. Am now on 5th day without xarelto. Blood is still oozing slightly but clotting well. Do I wait until the bleeding has stopped before restarting xarelto? Doctor is unavailable. ## I would get to some Doctor first and sooner the better. I thought I seen other bleeding problem posts but now can't find them. I worry about the possibility of internal bleeding, so far so good but seeing your post and others I think if a small cut won't stop bleeding in days then an internal bleed would be deadly ## While it is late now, if you're still on Xarelto or any blood thinner I'd recommend keeping some WoundSeal on hand. It's available on the internet and in many pharma...

Serrapeptase and Xarelto

Can I take Serrapeptase pills when I'm taking Xarelto? Will it affect my blood thinners? ## Hello Kita, Due to Serrapeptase being a vitamin I was unable to find any conclusive evidence that there is a negative interraction between it and the Xarelto. I was able to find on the Serrapeptase manufacturing website a warning that states if you have a bleeding disorder that you should consult your doctor before taking Serrapeptase. I would advise that you discuss this with your doctor not only because of the Serrapeptase warning but also because both of these work towards preventing blood clotting. I would say it is a strong possibility that taking two medications that thin your blood and prevent blood clotting should likely not be taken together but only your medical professional would b...

xarelto - can you stop it when you want

I have been on xarelto for 9 months for a PE i never had. I just seen a pulmonologist today and he said I didn't have a PE and I should stop taking them. I am very upset with my doctor and everyone that has taken care of me. My question is should I be worried about stopping them abruptly? ## Hello, Susan! How are you? There should be no reason to worry, since you've been given the all clear. As reported by the FDA, there may be some rebound blood thickening. Thus, it is best to check with your doctor first to make be sure whether or not there is a special procedure they want you to follow for stopping it. It's always better to extra cautious, when it comes to such things. How did you end up being diagnosed with a PE? ## Had some shortness of breath and a bad cough. Went to s...

Xarelto and weight gain

I have been on 15mg of Xarelto along with 40mg of Crestor for approximatley 8 months and have suffered through a distended abdomen and burning and aching in my hips, legs and feet. After blood tests and scans ruled out anything sinister I chose to stop taking Crestor altogether. Within a week my abdomen was no longer distented and much of the pain in my hips and legs reduced to a point where I actually got some sleep. I have now started back doing my walking and concentrating on eating everything right but my weight inexplicably is going up and up. I have also noticed my tension type headache and tinnitus which I have had both for 11 years has intensified and difficult to ignore. I can only think the weight gain can be caused by Xarelto...there seems to be no other explanation and I hav...

Xarelto neck swelling with pain a and stiff neck

Hi, I am on Xarelto for three months due to a blood clot in the lower calf left leg. I have been suffering with a pain to the left side of my neck my the lymph node travelling down my left arm. Now my neck is getting stiff and I feel like I have a lump in my throat. Should I be concerned? ## I, too, have a blood clot in my right lower calve. I have chronic pain my lower back. Since commencing Xarelto on February 28, 2015, my back pain has TRIPLED! It was never these severe. I just keep assuming that it must be from my using 15mgs of Xarelto per day. I had to go to the ER last night, (Friday, March 13, 2015) as I was having such severe pain. The ER doctor told me that the pain could not be from Xarelto. I disagree. I have read that Xarelto can cause muscle pain. Hope this helps! ## Hello...
