Yes: Xarelto is not affected by Vit K containing products like Warfarin would be.
Dr. Alok Patel
Family Medicine 9 years experience
Yes with caution: Seaweed contains very high levels of iodine. If you don't have thyroid problems, you should be safe to combine the two. On a side note, too much iodine can also alter the thyroid hormone levels. Be cautious with the amount of seaweed you ingest.

How can you tell if xarelto is therapeutic?

You can't!: Check out http://www.Xarelto-us.Com/. Xarelto's advantage over warfarin is that it doesn't require monitoring (regular blood testing) to determine if it's therapeutic or not b/c it's not affected by food, specifically vitamin k. Once you take it, it starts going to work immediately. Of course, that is also its achilles tendon b/c there's no good easy way to stop bleeding, unlike vit k for warfarin.

Xarelto: Factors that play a role are kidney function. The lower the function, the lower the dose. Also, use of other medications that may interfere with xarelto metabolism.
