When I take the whole 10mg on a consistent basis, after a few days I feel very anxious and nervous. Is there anything that I can do that will lessen this effect. I have had thyroid cancer which was successfully treated but I have a difficult time taking thyroid medication also. Any help you can give me would be deeply appreciated
Can I take only half of my 10 mg Xarelto medication a day because the whole 10mg bothers me too muc?

Maureen, please listen to Masco he has a great answer and you may call your doctor even tomorrow and let them know how bad it is making you feel. And one other thing sometimes it does help to take your Thyroid which ever one you are taking by itself with no other medications try and take it about an hour before or after any other medications. and with luck that just might be the problem. But call your doctor or nurse and let them know you can't handle the other medication and what can you do about it. best of luck.

I would not cut the xarelto in half without talking to your doctor! It might not be enough to clear the clots! I also felt very anxious when I was on xarelto and found some natural anxiety medication that helped lots ! Maybe something to look into ! Good luck !
