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?

Hi I am 77 years old and on Xarelto ,I have been on these now about 8 weeks.after being rushed into hospital from the Xray dep ,they discovered I had many clots
And two big clots on my lungs through a cat scan.
I went to my GP because of the dry cough and he thought I had Pneumonia.
He saved my life really when the blood test came back on my first visit to see him.
At first the side effects weren’t too bad, but now the dizzy spells ,headaches my eyes feel sore and tired.
The cough has now gone thank goodness, but I’m getting tired spells more than I did at first.
My pulse was very low 45/47 for weeks and decided to send me to see a haematologist ,she didn’t know either, last week I was sent for am ECHO test ,still waiting to see the result, and now my pulse is back to normal,
On Monday I’m due to go to the dentist for a filling and between two minds to cancel it ,
My knees hurt when I try to get on my feet, I still think I got these clots from my right knee ,my left knee had a knee replacement 5 years ago no problems at all having that done at the time,now they both hurts.
This Xarelto is a new drug it seems and they are still trying to find ways to stop these awful side effects.
The side effects seems to be getting worse not better,
I changed to Taking it after 6pm thinking the side effects would happen over night it doesn’t make any different .
I’m going to see my GP next week to find out about my ECHO result so I will ask him more about these medication.
A word of warning to those who decide to stop this tablet without your Dr Permission,it could cause something worse .
,be very careful . I’m going to take a panadol for my headaches.
Get better soon and I hope something will turn up to stop all these xtra pains ,

Yes I have had all of these things. I stopped Xarelto and am taking Eliquis now but only started it this morning. We will see what this does.
