Does anyone know of a sleeping pill (I have insomnia but have to take Xarelto for a PE)?

I was on Xarelto for 4 months for a DVT. Finally had to come off of it and transitioned to Coumadin. During my time on Xarelto, I experienced insomnia, joint paint, and lower back pain. The lower back pain got so bad I spent a 15 hours in an ER room standing up because I couldn't lay or sit down. I complained to my doctor about the back pain and the insomnia, and the office suggested taking pain meds and chamomile tea for sleeping. Xarelto was not the drug for me.

Sorry to hear about back pain. I have been on Xarelto over a year for congestive heart failure & afib... no problem w/ back or insomnia. Only rash & itching on arms & legs... which I'v heard can be quite common... I take 15mg & I cut back on it myself... feel better so I go from 15mg. & then 1/2 ... ask your Dr (I didn't) just talked to my med. Dr. I take .5mg. of Xanax for sleeping... been working for is commonly used for anxiety... good luck.. free discount card
