The dangers of Xarelto

On Behalf of | Apr 10, 2015 | Xarelto

Xarelto is a prescription blood thinning drug that hit the market since 2011. It was designed as an alternative to Warfarin, a well-established blood thinner that has been on the market since the 1950s.

As well as its required and necessary effects as a blood thinner, the active ingredient in Xarelto may cause a laundry list of side effects that require the attention of a medical professional. If any of the below-listed side effects occur while taking Xarelto, it is your best interest to discuss your symptoms with a doctor as soon as possible:

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Nosebleeds
  • Bleeding gums
  • Vomiting of blood
  • Coughing up blood
  • Limb numbness
  • Limb paralysis
  • Leg weakness
  • Crawling, prickling or tingling feelings
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Prolonged uncontrolled bleeding from shallow cuts
  • Vomiting of a material that looks like coffee grounds

It is possible some Xarelto side effects may not require the immediate life-saving intervention of a medical professional. As a body finds itself adjusting to the medication, some of the side effects will potentially disappear. A qualified medical professional can possibly help you reduce or outright prevent the side effects, but it is of the utmost importance that you talk with someone if any of side effects last longer than expected.
