I'm 79 with A Fib and recently my heart rate increased, I see so many bad things about xarelto. I still on 81mg aspirin.
Do not watch the ambulance chaser ads on tv. Did the dr tell you to keep taking the aspirin? Plavix had the same potential for bleeding that xarelto has.
Don't let the TV ads scare you away from Xarelto. It's a good product and is used on millions of people with no problems. I take it myself. I don't think you should still be on the aspirin however, check with your Doctor about that.
NO ASPIRIN, NO NSAIDS! Use only Tylenol or generic equivalent. I honestly believe problems with Xarelto are caused by taking other blood thinners with Xarelto. This includes over the counter cold and flu meds that have anything other than Tylenol/generic in it. Recent research showed a triple increase in problems taking NSAIDS with Xarelto. Its worked for me fine.
