Product Overview

Xarelto is a medication containing the active ingredient Rivaroxaban, available in the form of film-coated tablets. It belongs to a class of medications known as anticoagulants or blood thinners. Xarelto is prescribed to reduce the risk of blood clots and stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation, to treat and prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), and to prevent blood clots in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery.

Uses

Xarelto is used for various medical conditions, including:

  • Prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation
  • Treatment and prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Prevention of blood clots in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery

How to Use

Xarelto tablets should be taken orally with a full glass of water. It can be taken with or without food. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully regarding the dosage and duration of treatment. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablet before swallowing. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember, and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.

How it Works

Rivaroxaban, the active ingredient in Xarelto, works by inhibiting the activity of factor Xa, a key enzyme involved in the blood clotting process. By blocking factor Xa, Xarelto prevents the formation of thrombin, an enzyme necessary for the conversion of fibrinogen into fibrin, which forms the meshwork of a blood clot. This mechanism helps prevent the formation of blood clots and reduces the risk of stroke, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism.

Dosage and Administration

The dosage of Xarelto varies depending on the medical condition being treated and other factors such as kidney function and concomitant medications. It is typically taken once daily for most indications. Your doctor will determine the appropriate dosage and duration of treatment for you based on your individual medical history and response to therapy.

Benefits

The benefits of Xarelto include:

  • Effective prevention of blood clots and stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation
  • Treatment and prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Reduced risk of blood clots in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery
  • Convenient once-daily dosing regimen
  • Oral administration without the need for monitoring blood levels

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Xarelto may include bleeding, bruising, dizziness, headache, and nausea. Bleeding is the most serious side effect and may manifest as nosebleeds, bleeding gums, or prolonged bleeding from cuts. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any signs of bleeding, such as unusual bruising or dark stools.

Warnings

Xarelto should be used with caution in patients with a history of bleeding disorders, gastrointestinal ulcers, or kidney problems. It should not be used in patients with active bleeding or a history of hypersensitivity to the medication. Xarelto may increase the risk of bleeding, particularly in elderly patients and those taking other medications that affect blood clotting. Use caution when engaging in activities that may increase the risk of injury or bleeding.
