    Do not take xarelto if you do not want to go bald. My hair has come out in gobs, was not on the indication sheet as a side effect. After this happened I went back to look at the other posts and their were lots of people with the same problem. I don't care what happens to me but I am stopping the medicine today and make sure I tell my family also. Getting a lawyer.

    After an emergency room visit outside of the US, and being given Lovenox (injections) for 16 days, I was grateful to be prescribed Xarelto. I haven't had any side effects. Even though the price is prohibitive, Xarelto is covering my costs. I'm hoping to be on it short term.

    I have ben taking Xarelto for 6 days for a blood clot in my leg after vein ablation surgery. The past couple of days I have had horrible lower back pain, pain in my shoulders and neck. The only thing that makes me feel better is taking a walk. The good news is that my doctor thinks I should not be on it for more than 30 days. Good luck to everyone.

    Extensive right femoral DVT Jan./15. Right hip replaced May/12. Best guess is I should have been on anticoagulants post op. Symptoms itching, serious cramping, tingling toes, all seem to be abating with time. I've had some fairly scary injuries that haven't lead to as much bleeding as I feared. The thinner blood isn't as rich as what it was hence a decreased energy level, I guess. Stil ... Show Full Comment
