I was on Xarelto for 4 months for a DVT. Finally had to come off of it and transitioned to Coumadin. During my time on Xarelto, I experienced insomnia, joint paint, and lower back pain. The lower back pain got so bad I spent a 15 hours in an ER room standing up because I couldn't lay or sit down. I complained to my doctor about the back pain and the insomnia, and the office suggested taking pain meds and chamomile tea for sleeping. Xarelto was not the drug for me.
I too have been taking Xarelto for over a month due to hip replacement. I didn't know why I was having the lower back pain right after the surgery, and thought that perhaps it was due to the fact that I had to sleep on my back because of the hip replacement surgery. But when I was able to sleep on my side, I still suffered the lower back pain. But now reading that others had the same problem, it makes sense. As well, I have been having hot flashes, lack of sleep, itchiness.
Im 37 and have been on xarelto for almost 3 weeks. I do 15 mg twice a day. I have side effects that are rough. One is really bad back pain. Almost deep into the lower back. I can never get comfortable. My dr told me it’s nothing. I also get confusion easily and amongst other things like fatigued and I can’t workout anymore cause it makes me feel bad. I did end up in hospital they did a cat scan days ago and showed nothing. However pain is worst. Do these side effects go away?
After taking Xarelto for 3 weeks I switched to Eliquis. The pain did not ease off. Only went away after being of blood thinner for a week. I don’t know what to do if I ever have to go back on. I am currently taking a natural supplement called Nattokinase by Dr.s Best. It came highly recommended by a homeopathic Dr. This is instead of a baby aspirin. Good luck.
