Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) is a direct oral anticoagulant or non-vitamin K antagonist or anticoagulant. Other medications that are similar to Xarelto include Eliquis® (apixaban) and Pradaxa® (dabigatran). These medications are alternatives to traditional anticoagulants like warfarin. Medications like rivaroxaban, apixaban, and dabigatran share similarities in the mechanism of action but have differences in dosing and specific clinical indications. That is, they are used for different medical conditions.
Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) is used to reduce the risk of blood clots and stroke. For example, Xarelto® is used for the following purposes:
1. Prevention or treatment of Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT
2. Prevention or treatment of Pulmonary Embolism or PE
3. Reduce the risk of a stroke or embolism if a patient has Atrial Fibrillation or in patients that have undergone certain surgical procedures.
Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) works by inhibiting the activity of a specific clotting factor called Factor Xa. This helps in preventing the formation of blood clots which can be dangerous if they travel to certain vital organs in the body such as the brain, lungs, or heart.
