Question: What can i take for gout if i'm on xarelto

I have been on xarelto for 2 months after having a pulmonary embolism. But i have had an attack of gout since that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I discovered that both voltaren and celebrex which I have taken for gout in the past are not to be taken while on xarelto. So i desperately need to find something to relieve the pain that wont cause a problem with the xarelto. Help!!!

You'll have to tell your doctor. He/she may tell you to stop the xarelto and start 800mg ibuprofen every four to 8 hours for the inflammation and pain along with colchicine, which also will help with inflammation and pain. After the attack is completely gone then you will probably start allopurinol to help prevent a future gout attack and then start your xarelto again. Stay away from aspirin and tylenol. These drugs can actually trigger a gout attack and the tylenol (acetominophen) does nothing for inflammation.

  • Why is it taking so long for my inr to return to 2.5-3.0? (1 answer)
    I had my aortic valve (bicuspid) replaced in 1975, apparently had 2 silent heart attacks and was diagnosed with CHF in 2005 and had an ascending aortic aneurysm repair and aortic valve replaced in 2008.

    A few weeks ago, I went off the coumadin and on Pradaxa prior to having a cervical epidural injection. After the procedure, I went back on my normal dose of coumadin (7.5mg/daily) but 10 days later, my INR was still at 1.1. I went back on the Pradaxa and increased the coumadin to 10mg/daily for the past 4 days but am still only at 1.7. I can't remember ever having this much trouble getting my INR back to the proper range of 2.5-3.0. Anyone have any ideas what's causing it to be so slow returning???

  • Could hypomagnesia cause polymyalgia rheumatica
    Was initially diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica and prescribed prednisolone which was gradually reduced to zero but the muscle and joint pains came back. So I went to another doctor who diagnosed the muscle and joint pains as being caused by my cholesterol medications. I was put on prednisolone again and stopped taking my cholesterol medications. I was gradually taken off prednisolone but the muscle and joint pains have come back. I had a CTU scan and it showed calcification of the vas deferens and I wonder if this has been caused by having a magnesium deficiency and whether this could also be the cause of the polymyalgia rheumatica.
