On xarelto for 3 mths, chemo for idc bc. .. Just started period (1st since apr). Large blood clots are present, wouldn't the xarelto prevent this?

On xarelto for 3 mths, chemo for idc bc. .. Just started period (1st since apr). Large blood clots are present, wouldn't the xarelto prevent this?

Period and Xarelto: Xarelto makes the blood "thinner" but it does not prevent blood clots completely. Otherwise, you would be bleeding all over the place. We still need to maintain a baseline clot ting capacity. The trick is to find a balance to make it less likely to clot while still able to. Clots during your period are not unreasonable or unexpected. ...Read more

How long can symptoms of PE linger? Is it possible to develop new clots while taking Xarelto? Does Zoloft (sertraline) increase blood clot risk?

How long can symptoms of PE linger? Is it possible to develop new clots while taking Xarelto? Does Zoloft (sertraline) increase blood clot risk?

Depends: Depends on what caused the PE, how big the clot is, and how well the clot is responding to the bood thinning agent. The likelihood of developing new clots on Xarelto would definitely be lower than if not on a blood thinner, but depending on the cause they could technically recur.Zoloft (sertraline) has been shown in recent studies to decrease platelet activity in post heart attack patients, and may do so in PE too ...Read more

I have a blood clot in my calf, and the Dr. Prescribe Xarelto, is it anything to make it dissolve, how long does it take to dissolve? I keep elevated

DVT Treatment: Treatment of Deep Venous Thrombosis has three aims:
To stop the thrombus from breaking off and becoming a pulmonary embolus, to stop the thrombus from growing larger & reduce chance of more DVT. Please call your treating MD to discuss your treatment, he may also want you to wear compression stockings but you should coordinate through your treating MD only. Good luck.

I broke my ankle 3 days ago and found out blood clot in calf area from being sedentary for 3days - now on xarelto. What else can I do to tx/prevent?

Doing right thing: You are currently doing the correct thing. Any time you have an ankle fracture and are immobilized you are at increased risk of a blood clot. The important thing is to diagnose the blood clot early and get on a blood thinner (which you have done). Now you can allow your body to absorb the clot. In the future, alert providers you have a history of blood clots so you can prevent future clots. ...Read more
