What Is Xarelto?
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a widely prescribed blood thinning medication manufactured by Bayer and marketed by Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
Xarelto is approved to help prevent or treat deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, which is a type of blood clot that can form after certain types of surgery. Xarelto is also prescribed to people with atrial fibrillation, a heart rhythm disorder, to help lower the risk of stroke caused by blood clots.
Originally approved in 2011, Xarelto is one of the newest blood thinning medications available in the United States. Xarelto was developed as an alternative to the drug Warfarin (Coumadin), which has been on the market for decades.
