What is Xarelto?

Xarelto is a medication prescribed to adults. It’s used to reduce the chance of blood clots happening and to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and peripheral artery disease

It’s prescribed specifically to:

  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming in people who have a condition called atrial fibrillation (if it’s not caused by a heart valve problem)
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming and causing deep vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming again in people who are at a risk of blood clots after having been treated for them for at least six months
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming in people who have had knee replacement surgery
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming in people who have reduced mobility and may lie or sit still for long periods. This is usually after someone is hospitalized for an acute illness or major surgery, and as they recuperate after they’ve been discharged
  • Reduce the risk of serious heart problems, heart attacks, or strokes in people with coronary artery disease 
  • Reduce the risk of serious heart problems, heart attacks, or strokes in people with peripheral artery disease

You may also be prescribed Xarelto if you have coronary artery disease or peripheral artery disease. Xarelto comes as a tablet that you swallow. Your dose, and how often you take your Xarelto, will be decided upon by the doctor who prescribes it to you.

Xarelto active ingredients

The active ingredient in Xarelto is called rivaroxaban. It’s an anticoagulant drug, also called a blood thinner, that reduces the likelihood of clots forming in your blood.

When your blood clots, it goes through a chemical process that turns from a liquid to a thick gel. This chemical process is complex and has a number of steps that happen in sequence. Rivaroxaban works by interrupting one of these steps.

When you take Xarelto, rivaroxaban is absorbed into your blood. It attaches itself to and blocks an enzyme in your blood, called Factor Xa. This enzyme controls a step in the clotting process, and by blocking it, rivaroxaban makes it less likely your blood will clot.
