What is Xarelto?

Xarelto ® is a prescription drug that doctors prescribe to prevent blood clots, and to prevent people from having strokes. This drug was developed by Bayer and Janssen as a blood thinner.


What is Xarelto used to Treat?

The FDA originally approved this drug to use as a blood thinner for patients recovering from knee or hip replacement surgery. However, since the original approval, it has also been approved for patients with the condition known as:

  • Atrial Fibrillation, also known as A-Fib or irregular heartbeat. There are also other times when Xarelto ® is prescribed to patients that suffer from
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis or
  • Pulmonary Embolism.

The makers of Xarelto ® claim that the primary benefit of Xarelto ® over Warfarin, is that it does not require blood work monitoring. However, it is possible that the lack of periodic monitoring can be problematic, as patients are not being monitored for changes in their clotting ability, which could lead to dangerous bleeding.
