Comment:
I could not get into a steady INR with warfarin; the day before my ablation it was less than 2, so I had to significantly up the dosage the day of the ablation. When I woke up from the ablation, my INR was over 6 and I was in intensive care. I actually heard one of the nurses who was taking over the shift say, "what, she's over 6..OMG".

Bloody urine. Cardiologist took sample. Came back with bloody urine. Urologist urine sample showed +4 blood in urine. PCP is taking me off Xarelto for 4 days. Leg, knee and abdominal pain. Scheduled for Cycstoscope next week to check bladder. A-fib has stopped but b/p is still high.

Comment:
I'm very sensitive to pharmaceuticals and prefer natural remedies and nutrition. I was put on Xarelto because of an acute onset of a-fib. I have since had successful cardioversion and want to get off the drug because of near constant headache. I am going to discuss with my doctor using 1000 iu Vitamin e as a blood thinner instead.

Just awful.....blood spots under skin, bloody nose, spitting up blood, headache (fear of possible brain bleed) and terribly expensive. Dr tells me there is no test for its effectiveness and no counteractive for it. This stuff is DANGEROUS, so be warned.
