Had an ischemic stroke; given Xeralto to prevent another stroke; side effects are too severe to endure; kidney doctor wants me to stop taking Xeralto; heart doctor reduced amount of Xeralto by 50%; side effects are still very serious and causing life-threatening issues. What can I take to prevent a stroke but not cause the life-threatening issues with my kidneys and bladder?
Wow, that's a tough one. All the newer ones have that same kidney side effect. Warfarin has rare kidney side effects, the only one that doesn't effect the kidneys is lovenox, which is a shot.
