 1  DVT on Right leg & rt arm basilic Beware, after being put on Xarelto I bleed out at a hemoglobin of 4.8 extremely severe anemia. Passed out multiple times and ended up in the emergency room needing 6 pints of blood other doctor's said I would straight out die if I didn't get the blood transfusion. During my cycle I would pass mango sized blood clots and didn't stop bleeding for 3 months straight. I felt extremely lethargic but I thought it was due to me being so anemic. Not sure of Xeralto has anything to do with lack of energy. F 46 90 days

 1  DVT both legs, PE both lugs, Extreme weight gain During 4 years of taking it, I gained 70 pounds. Drs insisted Xarelto did not cause it. For me, Xarelto caused excessive swelling/bloating all over my body but especially in my face, neck and stomach, making me look morbidly obese. I have always been a smaller-sized female (size 4-6) and was shocked by the weight gain (size 14-16). Neither I nor anyone in my family has ever struggled with weight. My family were shocked and concerned and thought I had some sort of thyroid disorder. My mother stated that my stomach looked as though I were pregnant. Once I switched to warfarin, despite no other changes to diet or exercise, I lost more than 10 pounds each month for 4 months. One year later, I continue to lose the swelling around my face. I can fit back into my heels as my ankles and feet are no longer swollen. My stomach has returned to normal and I no longer look pregnant. F 53 4 years

 3  Carotid stenosis, clot prevention Was previously healthy and energetic. On Xarelto, extreme fatigue, sleepiness, weakness; shooting pains and weakness in joints, sleeplessness, frequently feel like I'm getting flu or bladder infection, itching all over body, loss of appetite. I am retired RN and I'm not imagining these symptoms. I recognize the importance of preventive anticoagulation therapy for my carotid stenosis, but the negative impact of xarelto on my quality of life will likely drive me to seek another medication.

Started 10 days laterwith lower abdominal pain, then I developed extreme fatigue, headaches, nausea, fever at times, constipation and difficulty sleeping. Finally asked my GP & thankfully he immediately changed me back to Coumadin, which I had no problems with.

XARELTO  (RIVAROXABAN):  Rivaroxaban is used to prevent blood clots from forming due to a certain irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) or after hip or knee replacement surgery. It is also used to treat blood clots (such as in deep vein thrombosis-DVT or pulmonary embolus-PE) and to prevent the blood clots from forming again. Rivaroxaban is an anticoagulant that works by blocking certain clotting proteins in your blood.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
