XARELTO (Rivaroxaban) $1.03 – Canada Pharmacy
XARELTO (Rivaroxaban) is a medication used to treat or prevent blood clots in a number of different medical conditions. Blood clots that form in the deep vein system may break off and become lodged in the capillaries of the lungs, brain, or other organs. Damage from blood clots may be permanent and can be fatal.
Xarelto may be prescribed for the following:
- Prevent stroke and systemic embolism in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation
- Prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery
- Prevent recurrence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE)
- Treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE)
This medication works by preventing the function of the clotting factor Xa. The body forms clots through a complex system of proteins called clotting factors, and by inhibiting factor Xa, medication slows the formation of blood clots.
