Have DVT in the entire left leg on Xarelto also experiencing intense leg cramps almost nightly anybody else have the same experience if so what can I do
Hi Mscyntro: Yes Xarelto is a clot preventer and is prescribed AFTER the clot(s) are busted (dissolved) with tPA or PLAT (Tissue Plasminogen Activators). The intense cramps in the leg are due to dehydration. Suggest that you drink plenty of water (at least 2 liters a day) and reduce your intake of alcoholic beverages.
