My husband,84, has only taken this med 3 times and last night he had a bad episode of nightmare taking over him and being agressive and very angry at people he said were trying to get him, he removed the trapeze bar for a weapon against imaginary gangs. I was very frightened by all this.
Hello mnzimm. No it should not. You best let his doctor know as soon as possible. Best of wishes for you both, pledge
Is he on any other medications? I would find a doctor before he gets another dose of the xarelto. Something is very wrong here, does he have a diagnosis of anything with dementia?
The symptoms you describe are associated with the carbidopa/levodopa that he is taking. It is not associated with the Xarelto. It is possible that the other medications that he is taking is exacerbating the interaction with the carbidopa/levodopa or one of them could be causing the problem as well.
It is not a good idea to stop an anticoagulant without first discussing it with your doctor. I hope that your doctor figures out the what is causing the nightmares and hallucinations.
I had some vivid dreams and nightmares after taking statin rosuvastatin 5 mg late before sleep ( as instructions) I take them at 5 p m but not ideal time.
On Rivaroxaban 20mg . Forgot to take the statin for a couple of days , but had a good dream , so the Rivaroxaban maybe caused dream .
Have a routine g p appt requested by g p to discuss , she contacted my lipid cholesterol Spec Clinic to see if this happens with that statin . I don’t know if she has reply from clinic . I heard that statins have neurological implications .
I definitely have no nightmares if no statin Before sleep, but they should be taken late to go into liver whole sleep .
Upto now Rivaroxaban no problems effects , on blood tests not much leak . I don’t want to start on warfarin route. So testing the statins . Wait to discuss with g p .
Good dreams are ok , but hearing voices is not. No mental conditions ever before . Never happened if no statin before sleep .
