My last 15 mg pill is scheduled for Friday morning and my first 20 mg for Saturday evening. Does that sound right with 36 hours between pills?
It depends on what your docs told you. I was on 15 mg twice a day for 21 days and then switched to 20 mg once a day. A total of 3 months.
I got off Xarelto and went back to Warfarin. It is my understanding that there is no immediate reversal agent for Xarelto in the event of a major bleeding event. Ask your doctor about the risk/benefits of Xarelto -vs- Warfarin. I do not have a qualified opinion about the 36 hour interval between different dosages.
