the top of head itch is so severe I feel like someone who is scratching from lice infection. I'd been taking Xarelto for about a month when I noticed the severe head itch. I've also had itch on back but nowhere near as severe as on head. I don't see any rash anywhere.
I have found Alpha Lipoic Acid and Ubiquinol (coQ10) are very helpful in decreasing pain from neuropathy. If there is an interreaction what can I substitute them with. I would prefer not to take anymore medications.
