Rivaroxaban Drug Information

Medication Information: Rivaroxaban prevents blood clotting. It works by blocking factor Xa, which is involved in blood clotting. Sometimes blood clots in the legs, lungs, brain and heart cause blockage of arteries. These clots are more common after surgery, palpitations, and irregular heartbeats. A drug called warfarin has been used for years to prevent blood clots from forming. But people taking warfarin should have a blood test every so often. This means that the dose of this medicine changes over time. Rivaroxaban works somewhat differently from warfarin.

Rivaroxaban is used to kill clots in deep vascular thrombosis. It may also be prescribed after knee and pelvic surgery to prevent clot formation.
