DESCRIPTION

Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) is an Rx medication that is used to treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT; a blood clot, usually in the leg) and pulmonary embolism (PE; a blood clot in the lung). Rivaroxaban may be continued to prevent DVT and/or PE from happening again after initial treatment is completed. It is also used to help prevent strokes or serious blood clots in people who have atrial fibrillation (a condition in which the heart beats irregularly, increasing the chance of clots forming in the body, and possibly causing strokes) without heart valve disease.

Rivaroxaban may reduce the risk of DVT, which can lead to PE in people who are having hip replacement or knee replacement surgery. It is in a class of medications called factor Xa inhibitors. Rivaroxaban works by decreasing the clotting ability of the blood.

Rivaroxaban comes as a tablet to take by mouth. For the treatment of a DVT and PE, rivaroxaban is usually taken with food twice daily for 21 days, then once daily. When rivaroxaban is taken to prevent DVT and PE, it is usually taken once daily with food. When rivaroxaban is used to prevent a stroke in those with an irregular heartbeat, it is usually taken once daily with the evening meal. When rivaroxaban is taken to prevent DVT and PE after hip or knee replacement surgery it is usually taken with or without food once daily. The first dose should be taken at least 6 to 10 hours after surgery. Rivaroxaban is usually taken for 35 days after a hip replacement surgery and for 12 days after knee replacement surgery.

Try to take rivaroxaban at around the same time every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take rivaroxaban exactly as directed and please, do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

If you are unable to swallow the tablets, you can crush them and mix with applesauce. Swallow the mixture right after you prepare it and do not mix and keep for future use.

Continue to take rivaroxaban even if you feel well. Do not stop taking rivaroxaban without talking to your doctor. If you stop taking rivaroxaban, your risk of a blood clot may increase.
