(Xarelto) rivaroxaban is a blood thinner, used for preventing internal blood clots. This can prevent strokes, clots in the lungs (pulmonary emboli), and clots in veins (deep vein thrombosis). This drug is frequently prescribed for patients with atrial fibrillation, in which the top part of the heart “wiggles” instead of beating in an organized way, increasing the risk of internal clots. It is also taken by patients after hip or knee replacement surgery. Xarelto works by inhibiting a molecule known as factor Xa. Factor Xa sets off a chain of reactions that ends in producing fibrin, a mesh that forms the foundation for clots.
Xarelto is available in tablet form. The usual dose is 10 to 20mg per day.
