Yes but..: Treatment withr xarelto is 15 mg twice a day for 21 days then 20 mg once a day after that.. Duration depends on several factors but most people require 3-6 month. Xarelto 15 mg once a day is used to prevent blood clots in individuals with irregular heart beats (atrial fibrillation). It is not an adequate dose for treatment of blood clots.
