My father is taking Xarelto 10 mb as a blood thinner for the afib. He had a hemorrhagic stroke and the doctors were concerned due to his age to restart a blood thinner like warfarin. This was a compromise. He needs an antiobiotic for a possible infection.
Which antibiotics are ok to take with Xarelto? thanks?

Your doctor could try chloramphenicol, and erythromycin if they are applicable to your father's infection. They did not show an increase in bleeding in patients with CrCl 30 to < 50 mL/min [Hazard Ratio (95% CI): 1.05 (0.77, 1.42)]. XARELTO should be used in patients with CrCL 15 to 50 mL/min who are receiving concomitant combined P-gp and weak or moderate CYP3A4 inhibitors only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk. Please note that there is no reversal drug, antidote, for Xarelto. If he is prone to falling, you will need to monitor him closely.
Hello, I'm actually asking a question for my mother she takes 15 mg Xarelto and just recently had to start taking 250mg Cipro for UTI. My mother's urologist asked that my mother not to take any blood thinners over the weekend. Her first antibiotic was Friday today is Sunday??? Are these two medicines compatible???
