Xarelto, known as rivaroxaban, is used to treat and prevent blood clots, primarily in the legs or lungs caused by deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE). Deep vein thrombosis causes blood clots, usually in the leg. DVT often occurs after a stay in hospital when you may not move around as much as usual or following knee or hip replacement surgery. If you have been receiving treatment for blood clots over an extended period of time, Xarelto may be used to lower your risk of a DVT after treatment. This medication may also be used to treat or prevent blood clots in other body parts. It is often prescribed to treat blood clots in the lungs, commonly known as pulmonary embolism (PE). Xarelto may also be used to lower the risk of a stroke caused by blood clots for people with the heart rhythm disorder atrial fibrillation. Together with aspirin, Xarelto can lower the risk of stroke, heart attack or other serious heart problems in people with coronary heart disease or peripheral artery disease.
Xarelto is an anticoagulant and works by blocking certain clotting proteins within your blood. Anticoagulants function by interrupting the process involved in the formation of blood clots. These medications are often known as blood-thinners although they don’t actually make the blood thinner. Rivaroxaban works just as well as other blood-thinners for preventing strokes and blood clots and doesn’t require regular blood tests or dose changes. As well as being used to treat DVT or PE, use of rivaroxaban can be continued to stop these happening again once the initial treatment is completed.
Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.
