Tablet or the dose?: Xarelto affects blood clotting & shouldn't be stopped abruptly. 15 mg or 20 mg tablets may be crushed and mixed with applesauce immediately prior to swallowing. After swallowing, the dose should be immediately followed by food. Do not change the dose on your own - speak with your physician before making any changes. http://www.xareltohcp.com/sites/default/files/pdf/xarelto_0.pdf
