What lab work should be checked while taking xarelto? PT or INR?

No testing needed. At all. However ... your doctor should periodically do liver and kidney function blood work to make sure xarelto isnt affecting either in any way.

You don't have to take a pt or INR-- but I would be taking a blood every so often. Ask your doc how often. Just to check that your levels are ok.

The pt and inr won't show anything. The new anticoagulants effect clotting later on in the clotting process.
