Xarelto | Rivaroxaban
"What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US."

Xarelto (rivaroxaban) blocks the activity of certain clotting substances in the blood.
Xarelto is used to prevent or treat a type of blood clot called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can lead to blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). A DVT can occur after knee or hip replacement surgery, and during or after a stay in the hospital when you cannot move around as much as normal.
Xarelto is sometimes used to lower your risk of a DVT or PE coming back after you have received treatment for blood clots for at least 6 months.
Xarelto is used in people with atrial fibrillation (a heart rhythm disorder) to lower the risk of stroke caused by a blood clot.
Xarelto is used to help prevent blood clots in certain people hospitalized for an acute illness who are at risk of getting blood clots and who do not have a high risk of bleeding.
Xarelto is also given together with aspirin to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other serious heart problems in people with coronary artery disease (decreased blood flow to the heart) or peripheral artery disease (decreased blood flow to the legs).
Dosage form: tablet, film coated
Rivaroxaban comes as a tablet to take by mouth.
For the treatment of a DVT and PE, rivaroxaban is usually taken with food twice daily for 21 days, then once daily.
When rivaroxaban is taken to prevent DVT and PE, it is usually taken once daily with food. When rivaroxaban is used to prevent a stroke in those with an irregular heartbeat, it is usually taken once daily with the evening meal. When rivaroxaban is taken to prevent DVT and PE after hip or knee replacement surgery it is usually taken with or without food once daily.
The first dose should be taken at least 6 to 10 hours after surgery. Rivaroxaban is usually taken for 35 days after a hip replacement surgery and for 12 days after knee replacement surgery. Take rivaroxaban at around the same time every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take rivaroxaban exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. If you are unable to swallow the tablets, you can crush them and mix with applesauce. Swallow the mixture right after you prepare it. Rivaroxaban can also be given in certain types of feeding tubes. Ask your doctor if you should take this medication in your feeding tube. Follow your doctor's directions carefully. Continue to take rivaroxaban even if you feel well. Do not stop taking rivaroxaban without talking to your doctor. If you stop taking rivaroxaban, your risk of a blood clot may increase.
You should not use Xarelto if you are allergic to rivaroxaban, or if you have active or uncontrolled bleeding.
Xarelto can cause a very serious blood clot around your spinal cord if you undergo a spinal tap or receive spinal anesthesia (epidural). This type of blood clot could cause long-term paralysis, and may be more likely to occur if:
* you have a genetic spinal defect;
* you have a spinal catheter in place;
* you have a history of spinal surgery or repeated spinal taps;
* you have recently had a spinal tap or epidural anesthesia;
* you are taking an NSAID - Advil, Aleve, Motrin, and others; or
* you are using other medicines to treat or prevent blood clots.
Xarelto may cause you to bleed more easily, especially if you have:
* a bleeding disorder that is inherited or caused by disease;
* hemorrhagic stroke;
* uncontrolled high blood pressure;
* stomach or intestinal bleeding or ulcer; or
* if you take certain medicines such as aspirin, enoxaparin, heparin, warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven), clopidogrel (Plavix), or certain antidepressants.
Tell your doctor if you have ever had:
* antiphospholipid syndrome (also called Hughes syndrome or "sticky blood syndrome"), an immune system disorder that increases the risk of blood clots;
* an artificial heart valve; or
* liver or kidney disease.
Taking Xarelto during pregnancy may cause bleeding in the mother or the unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
It may not be safe to breastfeed a baby while you are using this medicine. Ask your doctor about any risks.
If you need surgery, tell your doctor you are taking Xarelto. If possible, Xarelto should be stopped at least 24 hours prior to surgery to reduce bleeding risk. Do not stop taking Xarelto without speaking with your doctor first.
