Xarelto and Lovenox

I have been on Xarelto for 2 years for DVT my doctor said, I have to be on it indefinitely. My problem is, I have 2 pills left and my insurance has been cancelled. I'm in the process of getting new coverage but it takes 5 to 7 business days. Can I go without Xarelto for several days? Should I take a Lovenox inj. that was prescribed for me before I started taking Xarelto? Would this be a problem? ## Hello, Nickie! How are you? Have you found a solution, yet? It would be best to call your doctor to ask them, before using the Lovenox. These medications may cause side effects such as nausea, increased risk of bleeding, easy bruising, and dizziness. As to the Xarelto, you should also be able to just purchase a few days worth from your pharmacy, until your new insurance coverage begins.

bruising, same efficacy, less bleeding

Have been on xarelto 20mg for over 6 years after 3 unexplained PE's. at 72, the bruising is increasing and asked my Doc for advice. He switched me to Xarelto 10mg. Any experience with 10mg? He indicated "less bleeding" and "same efficacy". My first thought was, if true, why wouldn't everyone be on 10mg? ## Hello, Alan! How are you? I understand what you're asking, and it's kind of hard to explain, but I'll try my best..... When it comes to medications, efficacy, and potency, are two different things. Efficacy is related to how well a medication works, it is not dependent upon the amount taken, generally the efficacy rate remains constant from one dosage to the next. So yes, a 10mg, and a 20mg dosage of the same medication have relatively the same leve...

coumadin vs. xarelto

I've been on coumadin since 2001 when I had a dvt and have had no problem with it...ever. Now, my doctor wants me to try xarelto, I'm scared. Should I stay on coumadin or make the switch? Thanks!! ## Well, in this case, what I'd suggest doing is going to your doctor and discussing it with them. Schedule a consultation, so you can have a sit down chat about it and ask them why they want you to make the switch, specifically what benefits do they see you getting from the new medication that you don't get with the old. It is really the best way to calm your fears and get the precise details you need that will enable you to make an informed decision regarding what the best choice is for you. Learn more Xarelto details here. Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## I had tr...

warfarin to xarelto

I had a DVT in 2001 and have been on warfarin since. I've had no problem with it and go every week to get my INR checked which is no big deal. Now, my doctor wants to switch me to Xarelto but I'm scared. Opinions will be GREATLY appreciated. thanks!! ## I though I'd already posted some advice for you….but then again, I am getting old, so I may have forgotten, or it could have been a post from someone entirely different…it's hard to tell with me! :-) Anyway….my best suggestion is to call your doctor's office and ask for a consultation appointment, that way you can sit down and talk to them about your concerns. Make sure to ask them as many questions as you can think of about the medication and what benefits they th...

Xarelto and weight gain

I have been on 15mg of Xarelto along with 40mg of Crestor for approximatley 8 months and have suffered through a distended abdomen and burning and aching in my hips, legs and feet. After blood tests and scans ruled out anything sinister I chose to stop taking Crestor altogether. Within a week my abdomen was no longer distented and much of the pain in my hips and legs reduced to a point where I actually got some sleep. I have now started back doing my walking and concentrating on eating everything right but my weight inexplicably is going up and up. I have also noticed my tension type headache and tinnitus which I have had both for 11 years has intensified and difficult to ignore. I can only think the weight gain can be caused by Xarelto...there seems to be no other explanation and I hav...

xarelto and white willow bark

I was recently diagnosed A-fib, and I use Thrive supplements, which one of the igredients is white willow bark. is this dangerous, or can I not take xerelto and continue with Thrive, I love the product. It gives me energy and has helpled me lose some weight, and I'm sleeping great! ## Hello, Dave! How are you? Generally, anyone with impaired clotting, or who is on a medication like this that affects clotting should stay away from white willow bark, since it can also cause thinning. 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...

Xarelto with back, joint and muscle pain

If anyone else experienced these symptoms, how long after being off the xarelto did symptoms go away? ## According to the US National Library of Medicine, all of the side effects you mentioned are typical of Xarelto (Rivaroxaban). They actually list "back pain" as one of the more common side effects patients experience, along with "arm/leg pain" being less common. It also goes on to list "joint or muscle pain", but declares it under a category called "incidence not known". Ref: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0045374/#DDIC603481.side_effects_section From my perspective, I'd say the severity of these symptoms could potentially outweigh the benefits of the medication itself. Have you had a chance to sit down with your doctor and go over any of this yet...

These blood thinners are deadly

Once you start taking this you will be on it until blood walls thin, then you will be begin to bleed inside, then they will make you stop taking it, and you will have a stoke or heart attack, there are many other ways to thin your blood. These blood thinner drugs are poison. They did this to my Mother and Father, and my sister as well. Please save your life and find an alternative. A natural coarse is always the best coarse of action. ## OMG THIS IS HORRIBLE POST IF TRUE.... I feel like my day and possible life is ruined from your post you better be spot on with taking the responsibility to post such a commentary. ## You didn't indicate where you got your medical degree when you posted this opinion. I have confidence in our medical system, including the prescription blood thinners t...

Xarelto and Vitamins?

Was prescribed Xarelto 15 mg 2x daily two weeks ago for blood clot in the leg. I would like to keep taking the viamins/ supplements that I always took before this - I.e., B complex, Vit. C 1000 mg, Calcium/Magnesium, Vit D 2000 IU, Co-enzyme Q 10 200 mg, Biosil and Lutein. My doc said "no", but didn't tell me why not. Can't find any info anywhere to determine abiut this. Xarelto manufacturer has no info on package insert. Pharmacist doesn't seem to know either. I have read on another website that apparently the maket did not test for interactions w. vitamins, so they don't know. Does anyone here have any futher info regarding this? I feel that I really need to be taking my vitamins! ## Hello, Claire! How are you? Some vitamins can cause blood thinning and other m...
