Xarelto and Leg Spasms

I have been taking Xarelto 15mg twice daily for 2 months now for 2 dvts below the knee. 1 in gastrenimus in the calf and 1 in popliteal below or behind the knee. Ultrasound 2 weeks ago showed the dvt in popliteal is gone but the dvt in gastrenimus in my calf is still there. Shortly after starting Xarelto I started having involuntary whole leg spasms in the leg with the dvts. My whole leg tightens up and almost feels like an electric shock but only lasts about 2 to 3 seconds then goes away. Sometimes it will happen 2 to 3 times. The thing is this only happens while I'm waking up from a sleep or nap. Anybody have had this happen while on Xarelto? ## That is listed by the FDA among the possible side effects of Xarelto, along with nausea, increased risk of bleeding, easy bruising, and h...

vaginal bleeding on xarelto

Hi I'm 25 on xarelto for about 2 weeks now. I was on coumadin for 7 months previously but I had vaginal bleeding constantly from about 3 1/2 months in. Doctors attributed it to side effects. Switched to xarelto started on a Sunday night 20mg Monday morning lots of vaginal bleeding (sorry if its tmi) now its been off and on. I also have an IUD my gyno cleared it as any infections or what not. I'm just wondering if any ladies dealt with this on xarelto. I start 10mg tonight so I hope it helps. This sucks it affects my relationship and everyday life! ## Hello, Danielle! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. What I think we need to look at here is actually the combination of the Xarelto and your IUD. IUDs usually do cause irregular bleeding and...

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...

How long does it take for xarelto to enter your system after a dose?

Took 300 mg because couldn't take the pain anymore wondering if this is going to hurt me and how long it takes to enter your system and what is going to happen? ## Hello, Nana! How are you? Have you sought medical attention? That is far too much to take at once. Xarelto is not a pain reliever, it is a blood thinner used to treat or prevent blood clots. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, joint/muscle pain, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising. If you took that much, you need to see a doctor and inform them immediately. ## I am between insurance right now, and had to pay $500.00 for my last prescription of Xarelto 20 mg. Was wondering if I can take it every other night, hoping the 30 day supply will last me long enough until I obtain ins...

How are you feeling? I am very sorry that the Xarelto made you so miserable. Many people have complained about similar side effects.

can xarelto cause a side effect called planter fasciitis

I have been on Xarelto for just over 3 months. I have pain in my right heel that is extremely painful to walk on. A doctor diagnosed it as plantar fasciitis. Is this another side effect of Xarelto? ## It is not listed as a known side effect by the FDA. The typical side effects of Xarelto are listed as possibly including nausea, easy bruising, increased risk of bleeding, headache, and joint/muscle aches. As of now, according to current research, medications haven't been known to cause Plantar Fasciitis, however, that doesn't completely rule them out, either, since we learn new things every day. Are you on any other medications?

xarelto every other day instead of daily

I have a successful cardio version 2 months ago. I take 200mg Amiodarone and 20mg xarelto daily. I am in a higher insurance tier until Jan 2017 and a 90 day supply of xarelto is $455 (I pay 45%) I don't want to stop taking xarelto but can I take xarelto every other day instead of daily? ## Hello, Ernie! How are you? You should take it as instructed by your doctor, because doing otherwise could put you in life-threatening danger. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising. However, given that this one is so expensive, you may want to ask your doctor about a cheaper alternative that you can try. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What if there is no other alternative? My copay with Medi...

The FDA lists the typical side effects for Xarelto as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello did you ever find out if you can take it with thrive? Because I am also on xeralto but also want to start thr...
