All medicines have side effects. Sometimes they are serious, most of the time they are not. In serious cases, you may need medical attention.
Do not be alarmed by the following lists of side effects. You may not experience any of them.
Ask your doctor or pharmacist to answer any questions you may have.
Tell your doctor if you experience any of the following side effects and they worry you.
The following list includes the common side effects of your medicine:
- tiredness, pale skin, breathlessness
- feeling sick (Nausea)
- long or excessive bleeding following your operation
Your doctor may need to monitor and conduct blood tests, as Xarelto can affect your liver or pancreatic enzymes. You may not experience any specific symptoms.
Like other similar medicines (antithrombotic agents), Xarelto may cause bleeding. In some cases this bleeding may not be obvious.
If any of the following happen, stop taking Xarelto and tell your doctor immediately or go to Accident and Emergency at your nearest hospital:
- weakness, headache or numbness in the arms and legs
- unexplained swelling or bruising
- diarrhoea, indigestion, or stomach pain
- pain in the arms or legs
- fast and/or irregular heartbeats
- oozing from the wound
- coughing up blood
- blood in the urine or stool
- prolonged nose bleeds
- signs of allergy such as rash, itching or hives on skin, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or other parts of the body, shortness of breath, wheezing or trouble breathing
- signs of liver problems such as yellowing of the skin and/or eyes (jaundice)
Your doctor may decide to keep you under observation or change how you should be treated.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you notice anything that is making you feel unwell.
Other side effects not listed above may also occur in some people.
Check with your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if you have any problems while taking Xarelto.
