Took Xarelto 40MG tablets for 21 days. On the last day my legs weighed a ton, became nauseated and violently threw up. Rushed to ER - severe stomach bleeding. Spent 5 days in hospital, 3 in intensive care. Received 10 pints (10) of blood while in hospital.

MY HEALTH HAS IMPROVED SINCE BEING ON XARELTO 20MG. THERE IS NO SIGNS OF BARRETTS ESOPHAGUS AND THE FUNGUS UNDER MY TOE NAILS HAS DISAPPEARED. I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH XARELTO.
