I am having extreme joint discomfort where I can’t move. I’ve been on it six months in the last 2 months I’ve noticed memory loss. Is that a side effect. I can’t seem to get off Xeralto when I do I get pains where my clots are. I am on 10 mg’s. How long does it take your body to go back to no pain.

It has been known to cause some pain in arms and legs, as a side effect, as well as headache, according to FDA reports. But this extreme pain and memory loss are not normal side effects.

Have you consulted your doctor? This might not be the best medication for you and having clots, you should not just stop taking it, but rather switch to an alternative with your doctor's approval.

Are you on any other medications? The memory loss occurring during the last 2 months is very odd. Side effects usually manifest around 4 to 6 weeks into taking a medication, then start to taper off.

Hi. My sixth month was up this last week in taking Xarelto and my CT scans were clear after PE. Now I’m transferring to Cartia aspirin low dosage. This will be my first day without Xarelto, and my third day taking the aspirin. Since taking the aspirin I have had the runs, stomach aches. One day of relief and now again having to run to the toilet. I would like to know, do others suffer from this effect of this Cartia aspirin which is coated? What if I had to come off this aspirin too? What then? There is hope for an antidote to the Xarelto I believe in the pipe line now, waiting to be cleared by the authorities. As for aches and pains, I only experienced stiffness getting up from a chair. Tightness in the chest, and a worry I could bleed internally. I will see how I go on this transfer to aspirin. I would like to know more about this aspirin's side effects and how long do I have to be on it now that the clots after 6 months have gone away?

Re: Hefina (# 2)

Aspirin is really hard on the stomach I can’t take at all due to ulcers. I took Cheyenne Pepper pills for a couple of months and it worked wonders. My cardiologist approved. I got them at my local drug store. Look up what they do you’ll be surprised.

Re: Janet (# 3)

Thank you Janet for that advice. I’m going through a difficult patch coming off Xarelto, my breathing is a worry, trying to breath too hard I think. I was on the verge of going to see my GP today but I feel calmer, the tinnitus has subsided. I’m hoping these side effects goes soon it’s been 4 days. The aspirin which is coated seems to be ok so far, but burping a lot. Keeping busy is better for me at the moment going through lightheadedness, anxiety, and fast heart beat. I check my BP and BG every morning. 139/80 and 7.1 sugar levels. One thing I have noticed is weight gain. I have been running to the loo a lot as well. To think I’m not drinking as much water. So crossing my fingers I can lose this weight pretty quickly. I will take your advice on taking cayenne pepper pills. Sounds good.

Just been on the telephone with my GP concerning the breathing problem I am having after exertion, walking up my drive way (not steep) I wanted to know what side effect this Medication has when you are five days off taking it and now on asprin 100mg. my lungs were clear on the CT scan a week ago. that is why I was taken off them to asprin. Why is it difficult to breath now that I’m off Xarelto? Does the change over affect the breathing? My GP said this morning it will get better, and anxiety could be the cause, also my throat clearing is a problem, no chest pain.

I am experiencing leg and hip pains now after coming off xarelto ,and dizziness,
Not so much when I was taking 20mg ,I was on them for 6 months then got the Clear CT scans.
But it's now I'm experiencing the painful pains in my left leg ,I had a knee replacement 7 years ago with no problems at all until the last three weeks .
It's hard to stand upright after sitting down .
I know people have been complaining of aches and pains to the point where they can't move without pain.
It's now I'm feeling these pains ,weird!, take care, everyone is different ,

I am now at 5 months off of Xeralto. I get occasional pain, I do have anxiety attacks and gained weight with Xeralto, it does state the weight gain on the pamphlet. I now have heart palpitations that just started. Just left my job I am hoping with the stress relief that will help me get my full mental capacity back.

Hi it’s been weeeks now since I was put on Aspirin,after taking Xarelto for 6months.
The clots had gone, the De-dimer was 5.3. I was told to have another de dimer Two weeks later which I did have down to 5: it should be under 5
I have to see the Haematologist on the 26th of June,
Maybe she can disgus with me what is the next step to take to bring this Blood test below 5.
I’m still having difficult getting up from a sitting position. And I do have muscle pain in the side of my back, I’m putting this down to lifting heavy bags,
The thing that worried me was feeling dizzy taking Aspirin and then Avapro Blood pressure medication.
I read up on Avapro taken later in the day that it shouldn’t be allowed.i mentioned this to my GP and he said to take the aspirin in the morning and Avapro later in the day. That has improved.
Always check what side effects your medication Has , you would be surprised the results.
PS rather than having CtScan again there is something they can check with is a form of ultra sound . Mine was a PE. , at the moment I’m not too bad,
