... seem reluctant to give me follow up tests to check progress. I had a massive panic attack this weekend - was given allot of tests before they determined it was in fact panic - and I was told the clots in my lungs were gone. I want to get off the Xarelto asap. The side effects scare me - already had anaphylaxis reaction because of b/p meds I'm discovering that I didn't need and that is a side effect of Xarelto. Not in a rush to go through it again. Doctors I've seen don't take my concerns seriously. Does it have to be a pulmonary doctor or can a regular md get you off it?
