I have been taking Xarelto for 4 months
Well Xarelto caused sever fluid retention while I took it. I gained 12 kg in 3 weeks. I exercised 5 times a week and ate absolutely normal. I weighed 56 kg at a height of 5''8 and after these 3 weeks weighed 68 kg. I took it for 3 months. I didn't loose any water afterwards. Xarelto did something to my body nobody can put a finger on what it might has changed.
I have been taking Xarelto for a month. Had weight issues since birth of children but it has been stable for years. Since taking this awful drug I have put on at least 6kg with no change in diet and I have had the most awful upset stomach. Phoned doctor yesterday and he has taken me off this with absolutely no argument which makes me think others have complained. I am drinking lots but pretty sure still retaining fluid. It has to be this drug.
I'm male and 77 yrs old ... I took xarelto for three months and stopped them 16 days ago ... during the three months my stomach was bloated and my weight increased seven kilos ... my weight has reduced by four kilos but my stomach is still bloated and uncomfortable ... I walk four kms every morning and am 175 cms tall with my weight normally at 79 kilos ... I'd had a pulmonary embolism and am now on aspirin ...
Yes, I had my PE 3 years ago never any problems. When I got released from the hospital I went home and that's when the bloating started and continues to this day. I took it for 6 months and have not been on it
I thought maybe it was a food allergy and have eliminated certain foods but nothing has helped. I just want my stomach back! I also gained weight while on it.
I have been on the xarelto for almost 4 years now, had no issue from the start even though I lost weight and all was good, however I suddenly gained weight of 12kg which I can’t get off.
I work out hard almost daily and not eating carbs for the last 1 month but my weight around my belly area still on and I can’t get it off.
Is this the drug causing it?
I have been on xarelto now for over 2 years & now for the rest of my life..I have gained almost 19 kilos... I eat healthy and small amounts... but I do like a couple of wines in the evening... great thing about Xarelto... However my Dr also put me on Extine 20 mgs which is for anxiety... I thought maybe this was the reason for my gain... which I have read horrific stories of weight gain... I am now trying to wen of this medication, with horrible side effects, especially the electric nerve shocks..which are horrid... however I find a glass of wine helps... I am stunned to read everyone on this page has had weight gain from Xarelto... its horrible-on the flipside Xarelto saved my life
I had shoulder reconstructive surgery; and, got a blood clot. I have never been heavy, except during pregnancy. After 5 months n Xarelto, I gained almost 20 lbs. since I stopped taking it, I can’t lose more than 2 lbs.—And, that is with normal, healthy eating; and, regular exercise. I am so depressed about this bloating. I wish I knew how to get rid of it, it’s horrible and so is Xarelto!
