What is Xarelto?
Xarelto or Rivaroxaban is a blood thinner or anticoagulant that reduces blood clots. It is normally used to treat irregular heartbeats (atrial fibrillation), blood clots in the leg (deep vein thrombosis), and blood clots in the lung (pulmonary embolism).
What are the side effects of Xarelto?
Xarelto can cause internal bleeding which may cause a stroke, hemorrhage, or hematoma. For some, the blood loss is uncontrollable and could lead to significant diagnostic testing, hospitalization, and blood transfusions. Because the bleeding is internal, some people may not notice the blood loss but feel weak and tired. If you reach out to a doctor, you can get it diagnosed by blood tests that can see if your hemoglobin levels are low.
