WHAT IS XARELTO?
Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) is a blood-thinning medication similar to warfarin. Compared with warfarin, Xarelto® may double the risk of serious and sometimes fatal internal bleeding. Xarelto® was sold for years without an antidote to reverse its blood thinning effect. Do not stop taking Xarelto® without first consulting your doctor.
