What is Xarelto? Xarelto (aka Rivaroxaban) is one of several anticoagulant drugs, commonly referred to as "blood thinners." These drugs are generally prescribed for individuals who:
  • Have undergone surgery
  • Have suffered some form of trauma
  • Have a heart condition that may lead to the formation of dangerous blood clots
The main side effect of this and other anticoagulant drugs is that they make the individual using them more susceptible to uncontrolled bleeding.
