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

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.

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.
