Treatment Tips for Xarelto

General Information on Taking Xarelto

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Xarelto include the following:
 
  • If you forget to take your dose, take it as soon as you remember, as long as you remember on the same day, even if this means taking two doses at the same time (for people who take it twice a day). Continue with your regular schedule on the next day. If you fail to realize you missed your dose until the next day, just skip the missed dose and continue as usual.
 
  • If you have difficulty swallowing medications, the 15- and 20-mg Xarelto tablets may be crushed. Do this immediately before you take your dose and mix the crushed tablet with applesauce before swallowing. The crushed tablets may also be mixed with water when given through a feeding tube. You will still have to eat after taking Xarelto in this manner.
 
  • For this drug to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. You may be increasing your risk for serious problems if you stop taking it too soon.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Xarelto dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
