Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is an anticoagulant used to treat or prevent blood clots. It is relatively new medication, introduced to the market in 2011. Xarelto provides a few advantages over its older competitors, like warfarin:
Classic blood thinners like warfarin require diet modifications, often require frequent monitoring since dosage can be highly dependent on factors like age, weight, diet, and so forth, and because of those sensitivities dosage adjustments are not unusual. In this respect Xarelto is quite convenient.
That is not to say Xarelto doesn't have its drawbacks. While medications like warfarin can be counteracted, such as with vitamin K in warfarin, there is no such antidote for Xarelto. This can make managing bleeding challenging, with little choice but to wait for Xarelto to leave the system. Individuals prone to bleeding, such as frequent nosebleeds, or who regularly engage in work or activities where risk of injury is relatively high, may want to consider other options.
Preventing Blood Clots with Xarelto
Xarelto is predominantly used to prevent blood clots in three scenarios:
A doctor will be needed to determine the ideal dosage and duration of treatment; a number of variables need to be taken into consideration. Treatment will also vary to some extent depending on the condition being treated.
In AFib standard treatment is:
To treat or prevent deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism:
Following hip or knee replacement surgery:
Again, the above guidelines may vary according to individual variables. Doctor instructions should be followed carefully to prevent complications.
While Xarelto is a convenient medication, it is not without risk; it still carries many of the same risks as any other blood thinner. Most significant of those risks is excessive bleeding, since the body's clotting ability will be impaired. Patients taking this or any blood thinner should take care to:
There are a number of other medications, including over-the-counter medications and supplements like St. John's wort, which can interact with Xarelto. Double check with a doctor or pharmacist before taking any other medications while taking Xarelto.
Patients who have a history of spinal problems and/or spinal surgery, who have had multiple or difficult spinal punctures and/or epidurals, or who have these procedures performed while taking Xarelto, are at increased risk of potentially very serious complications. Take care to discuss risks and warning signs with a doctor before starting treatment with Xarelto.
Any unexplained or uncontrolled bleeding is a potential medical emergency while taking this or any blood thinner. Seek medical attention if:
The prospect of taking blood thinners may sound daunting, but in patients at high risk of blood clots blood thinners can be vital in helping maintain independence, high quality of life, and even preserve life itself. If the medication is used as directed and patients or caretakers stay alert for any potential complications, benefits nearly always outweigh risks.
