Drug Information:
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) blocks the activity of certain clotting substances in the blood. Xarelto is used to prevent or treat a type of blood clot called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can lead to blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). A DVT can occur after knee or hip replacement surgery, and during or after a stay in the hospital when you cannot move around as much as normal. Xarelto is sometimes used to lower your risk of a DVT or PE coming back after you have received treatment for blood clots for at least 6 months. Learn more

Xarelto Side Effects

Note: This document contains side effect information about rivaroxaban. Some of the dosage forms listed on this page may not apply to the brand name Xarelto.

For the Consumer

Applies to rivaroxaban: oral tablet

Warning

Oral route (Tablet)

Premature discontinuation of any oral anticoagulant, including rivaroxaban, increases the risk of thrombotic events. To reduce this risk, consider coverage with another anticoagulant if rivaroxaban is discontinued for a reason other than pathological bleeding or completion of a course of therapy. Epidural or spinal hematomas, which may result in long-term or permanent paralysis, have occurred in patients treated with rivaroxaban who are receiving neuraxial anesthesia or undergoing spinal puncture. Optimal timing between the administration of rivaroxaban and neuraxial procedures is not known. Factors that can increase the risk of developing hematomas include: use of indwelling epidural catheters; concomitant use of drugs affecting hemostasis, such as NSAIDs, platelet inhibitors, or other anticoagulants; or a history of traumatic or repeated epidural or spinal punctures, spinal deformity, or spinal surgery. Monitor patients frequently for neurological impairment. If neurological compromise is noted, urgent treatment is necessary. Consider risks/benefits before neuraxial intervention in patients anticoagulated or to be anticoagulated for thromboprophylaxis.

Along with its needed effects, rivaroxaban (the active ingredient contained in Xarelto) may cause some unwanted effects. Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do occur they may need medical attention.
