My husband's Cardiologist has told him he doesn't need to have blood levels ever checked while taking Xarelto. How does he know his levels are in a safe range.
No. However, if your doctor believes there is a lack of anticoagulation he can request a blood test but that would not be the usual case. If he is taking other medication you need to ensure that there is no interaction between the drugs that could increase or decrease the effectiveness of Xarelto.
