A Bit Of Shortness Of Breath, And Light Headed Ness...

Martga Says:

I had a PE two years ago, and was put on Xarelto, once I started my normal everyday things again and felt stronger I would sometimes get light headed and
feel what could be anxiety...I stopped taking it for four moths (at a doctors advice) but then they found another clot in my deep vein near the pelvis. So back on it again...I can do lots of strenuous work and feel fine doing aqua fit etc, but sometimes when digging in the garden or just dancing a bit I get light headed and feel a shortness of breath...is this a side effect? or ?

Those can be side effects of this medication, as reported by the U.S. FDA, along with nausea, headache, and easy bruising.

However, given your history of clots, there is also a chance that something else might be going on, so you should inform your doctor and have this checked out to be safe.

Are you on any other medications?
