Kenny No problem as far as taking this and nerve damage below this i have a copy and paste for the patient..DO not stop without talking with you doctor or take anything that well thin your blood... That is the primary function of this medication used to get better flow around knee replacement or bad valves at heart..so things that thin blood are mor like any insaids that is ibuprofen,alieve,any anti inflamatory..always let your doctor know if you are taking anything your not sure of aspirin blood thinners and this is mostly taken in one dose at night with a meal.very importaint if you see a doctor or dentist let them know you are using this medication..But it does not effect medicines that help nerve pain.But of couse let your doctor know when ever they bring out that pen to write you a prescription ... This is the most importaint on patient infor..word for work a copy and paste from our site right here good luck hope this helps you Chuck1957 and Merry Christmas. Patient Information

Remind patients not to discontinue rivaroxaban prematurely without first talking to their health care provider.
Advise patients with atrial fibrillation to take rivaroxaban once daily with the evening meal.
If a dose is missed, advise patients to take rivaroxaban as soon as possible and continue on the following day with their once-daily dose regimen.
If patients have had neuraxial anesthesia or spinal puncture and particularly if they are taking concomitant NSAIDs or platelet inhibitors, advise patients to watch for signs and symptoms of spinal or epidural hematoma, such as tingling, numbness (especially in the lower limbs), and muscular weakness. If any of these symptoms occur, advise patients to contact their health care provider immediately.
Advise patients to report any unusual bleeding or bruising to their health care provider. Inform patients that it might take them longer than usual to stop bleeding, and that they may bruise and/or bleed more easily when they are treated with rivaroxaban.
Advise patients to inform their health care providers and dentists if they are taking, or planning to take, any prescription, OTC, or herbal products, so potential interactions can be evaluated.
Advise patients to inform their health care provider immediately if they become pregnant or intend to become pregnant during treatment with rivaroxaban. Advise pregnant women receiving rivaroxaban to immediately report to their health care provider any bleeding or symptoms of blood loss.
Advise patients to discuss with their health care provider if they are breast-feeding or intend to breast-feed during anticoagulant treatment.
