G Conner on Jul, 31, 2012:
female, age 65, Texas
I am on both Xraelto and Flecainade. I have had a headache all month since I started Flecainade. Wonder if those will go away after a while, some are severe, or the drug needs changing. I had atrial fibrillation, no valve problems and shocked on 7/3.
Dawn on Dec, 30, 2012:
I'm 40 years old and I've been on this drug for two months now and the headaches havent gone away. I'm on this because I have an MTHFR mutation that causes blood clots in my legs. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this, along with the welling and tired feeling go away.
Mark on Mar, 27, 2013:
I too am on Xarelto (20MG daily)for DVT/PE. Have some headaches as well. Usally after I take the dose at dinner meal. I did find some information about FDA trials of this drug. The drug company had subjects on 10 mg twicw daily during some of the reasearch. FDA did challenge as to why they went to a single dose of 20mg. I have thought perhaps changing to 10 mg twice daily.
