  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Several months after starting xarelto short term memory losses became annoying, just normal things, but seemed more often. Now I have to write everything down and daughter has to go to appts with me because I can't remember what to say or what doctor said to do.
    Have "fainted" 3 times unexpectedly, with no warning at all,and no memory,just what people around me say happened.
    None of this happened until after I was put on xarelto.
