What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is a prescription medication used to treat deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, the forming of a blood clot in the legs and lungs of people who have just had knee or hip replacement surgery and to help reduce the risk of these conditions occurring again. Xarelto is also used to treat people with atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat) and reduce the risk of stroke. People suffering from atrial fibrillation are at an increased risk of forming a blood clot in the heart, which can travel to the brain, causing a stroke, or other parts of the body.
