    Are everyone's hearts as I say "behaving this evening?" Had a full day without pvcs! Always a good thing! The last afib episode was in October! For some reason it always appears every 6 months! So I'm not due until April 2015! Will try to be positive and tell myself it's not going to happen!

  • Constipation from the drug that the doctor recommended i take
    I am active not overweight and not on any other drugs. Went to the hospital with severe pain ever since nov. 2014 up until 02/2015 i have experienced constipation. Never ever had problems like this since i started this drug. I dont smoke or drink. work out each day and eat before 8 at night. Not to sure what is up.
  • Labral ligament tear in shoulder
    MRI showed Labral Ligament Tear in left shoulder while on Xarelto with no fall, injury, or any physical activity that should have resulted in such an injury. Will be seeing Orthopedic doctor very soon for possible surgery.
  • Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
    Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Eczema after takin xarelto
    After the second day of taking Xarelto for a pulmonary embolism, I noticed a red itchy patch on my neck. My doctor identified it as eczema. I've never had it before in my life.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Lower Back pain came on suddenly simutaneously with leg pain. Did nothing to cause the pain. Leg pain in thighs (front and back), knees (front and back), shins, even the sides of my legs. Especially painful when sleeping, discomfort when walking or sitting. Pain doesn't stop in legs. Back pain is constant dull ache.

  • The reoccurring and not healing cold sores on the lip and nose area has been a significant problem not had before the medication and is a deep concern.

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • I have otosclerosis on bothe ears already 35-40 years. Both ears have had a stapedectomy surgery on both sides between 1979 and 1983. Sice that time the lost of hearing was more or less stable. In 2006 a CT-Scan has been made and everything was normal.In January 2014 A CT-Scan showed one of the protheses was not connected anymore. A new surgery was planned for November 2014.

    In 2010 I started having problems with atrial fibrilation. Since 2010 I used the drug Fenprocoumon to prevent strokes.
    Also in January my cardiologist advised me to use Rivaroxaban (Xarelto) 20mg, in order to avoid the continuously checking of the INR of my blood. I started to use 20mg Xarelto per day, during one year.

    In November 2015 the surgery on my ear took place. The result was very poor: End of December 2014 a audio/hearing test has been done wich concluded a 50% loss of hearing. January 2015 again a CT-scan has been made wich showed a huge increase in bone growth in the inner ear and the middle ear, compairing to the Scans from Janary 2014 and 2006.
    My otologist was very surprised: The CT-scan showed a succesfull surgery, so he asked me which drugs i took. Soon he concluded that the drug Rivaroxaban (Xarelto), which I was using one whole year during that same period,was the responsible cause for this devastating bone groth.

    There is no way back. The damage is irreversable. The only solutieon left for me is a cochleair implantation.

    So now I am looking fot medical evidence to be able to get some compensation from the Bayer Company.
