Serious Reactions to Xarelto

Serious Side Effects

Some side effects of Xarelto are potentially serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider right away. Most of these serious reactions are related to bleeding, an inherent risk with "blood-thinning" medications. Some of the warning signs of these serious problems include:
 
  • Unusual headaches, dizziness, or weakness
  • Unusual bruising (bruises that develop without known cause or grow in size)
  • Blood in the urine
  • Blood in the stool (usually seen as red or black stools)
  • Nosebleeds
  • Bleeding gums
  • Bleeding from cuts that takes a long time to stop
  • Menstrual bleeding or vaginal bleeding that is heavier than normal
  • Coughing up blood.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Xarelto. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
