Have stopped smoking cold turkey after 30 years. Now at age 70, I am trying to eat smarter. The diagnosis of the pulmonary embolism, and subsequent near death experience has me walking on eggshells and thus trying to figure out what I can eat for better health. Have read the benefits of olive oil. So, does anyone know if it's safe with Xarelto?
I am taking Xarelto. Diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism. Can I safely take olive oil?

Xarelto does not have food restrictions, you can enjoy a healthy diet and of course olive oil.
I have been on Xarelto for over 7 years. I too had pulmonary embolisms--3 of them over a two year time frame. I was on Warfarin for a few years before being approved to switch to Xarelto. The greatest advantage of Xarelto over Warfarin is no dietary restrictions. That said, I will caution that it does have interaction issues with several medications. So, based on my doc's advice and my own experience, you are free to eat as you please but you should always check any new med to make sure it is compatible.
