Latest in a series of e-patient requests.
A good friend overseas writes that due to a fracture and other conditions she’s on Xarelto, a drug to prevent blood clots. (Here’s the drug’s page from the EMA, “the European FDA.”) The drug is causing serious issues with her blood and liver enzyme numbers and may be discontinued next week. Meanwhile she seeks e-patient advice in addition to everything she’s already found.
Are there any reports of adverse events from patients on the drug?
Is there anywhere online to discuss the drug with patients who are on it?
Any other suggestions?
