Coumadin is used to treat blood clots (such as in deep vein thrombosis-DVT or pulmonary embolus-PE) and/or to prevent new clots from forming in your body. Preventing harmful blood clots helps to reduce the risk of a stroke or heart attack. Conditions that increase your risk of developing blood clots include a certain type of irregular heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation), heart valve replacement, recent heart attack, and certain surgeries (such as hip/knee replacement).Rivaroxaban is used to prevent blood clots from forming due to a certain irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) or after hip or knee replacement surgery. It is also used to treat blood clots (such as in deep vein thrombosis-DVT or pulmonary embolus-PE) and to prevent the blood clots from forming again. Rivaroxaban is an anticoagulant that works by blocking certain clotting proteins in your blood.

I am relieved that there is a medicine that can control my own blood's emphasized clotting activity. It killed my father and grand father and left my aunt severely disabled after a stroke.

I had a total left hip replacement & was put on 5mg coumadin when I was released from the hospital. I had to set alarm to take it at 5pm every day because I would forget. It made my joints & muscles achy and changed my personality. My husband said I was snapping at him and that isn't my nature at all. My gums bled terribly & my taste buds were way off. Nothing I ate tasted right. My ta ...

I took this drug for 7 years for Atrial Fibrillation. It did not affect my quality of life. You can eat greens, as long as you always eat greens, so they can set the dosage accordingly. Eight months ago I had open heart surgery at the Minnesota Mayo Clinic for Hypertropic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy and while there were in there, I asked them to do the Afib ablation. I have not had Afib since t ...

I started this in June 2013 even though I do not have persistent or permanent afib. I am female age 60 with hx of Type 1 DM x 32 yrs. Dr says this is what I need to prevent stroke. Scared me, so I started this. After about a month I began to get a bounding heart beat(but regular), increased anxiety from that, facial/scalp tingling like I got an anesthetic injection from the destist and bleeding gums. Dr felt was reaction to the antiarrhythmic and changed that to pill-in-th-pocket but kept me on xarelto. Says gum bleeding just part of it. :( More frequently, now, after taking I have bleeding gums and the tinglinglasting longer and longer. Also noted now, that heartburn more at night (take xarelto in evening) It is making me crazy and afraid. I am gong to talk with dr about changing this to another anticoag--even willing to try coumadin as I don't care if I need to monitor frequently. This is a scary drug. I am beginning to fear the other bleeding problems. Just creating more and more anxiety. As far as effectiveness--guess so, bleed a bit longer after getting blood draw. Bruised easily before so can't tell on that one.
