Hi there I'm 45. F, After a Hysterectomy I discovered a pain in my back, after CT scan discovered a PV on my Lung. I was put on the 2 x 15mg xarelto and now on the 20mg for 6 mths. I now have 4 Months left to go and it is now when I am finding the side affects to be at their worst. Swollen/painful left foot, behind the knee, wrists, left side throat gland? and the dizzy spells, severe headaches, blurred vision. It's enough to keep me almost bed ridden! I have read the side effects on this sight and feel at ease, but I and planning on flying (24hr flight) and feel very anxious about it. As we will be living overseas for a year I'm also worried about just stopping the meds alone. but was advised to. any thoughts?? And any thoughts about flying back NOT on the Xarelto? Thanks in advance.

Ruth, you should never just stop such a medication, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. It is normal to experience side effects from a medication. Xarelto may cause nausea, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising.

Kat, have you considered finding a doctor in your new location to monitor you and help you, when it's time to stop taking it? That might help you feel more comfortable.

Kacey, has your doctor provided any instructions for what to do in these instances?

In the future, you might want to use an app to keep track of when you've taken your medication.
