From this study (3 weeks ago):
mikr on Feb, 19, 2014:
I use 20mg of xarelto. Twice in the last two years I had been given 500mg amoxicillin 3 times a day for a bad cold. Both times I started to have mild nose bleeds and by the end of the second work day my ankles and lower legs became dark purple and bruised all the way around. I cut the xarelto dose in half and the bruising went away in 3 days. I am 60 and walk allot at work. I normally do not have problems with this and I am very active.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I don't take the zolpidem every night. Just when I cant sleep.
