Good day, what will the effect be on the body if you are taking xarelto 15mg daily and then ephedrine for fat loss reasons? will you be at risk due to ephedrine burning the blood thinners faster? the ephedrine will be a low dosage.

Ephedrine: Ephedrine is a stimulant that does effect the heart and cardiovascular system. It has been used to suppress appetite for weight loss but if you are on Xarelto for heart related issues, ephedrine could be a medicine that might interfere with your heart health. I would definitely have a visit with a provider regarding its use.
