How to take XARELTO®

AFib Dosing

Take one 15-mg or 20-mg tablet once a day with the evening meal

What to do if you miss a dose:

  • Take it as soon as you remember on the same day. Take your next dose at your regularly scheduled time.

Important things to keep in mind:

  • Do not change your dose or stop taking XARELTO® unless your healthcare professional tells you to. Stopping XARELTO® increases your risk of having a stroke.
  • Take XARELTO® exactly as prescribed by your healthcare professional. Your healthcare professional will decide how long you should take it and prescribe either XARELTO® 15-mg or XARELTO® 20-mg tablets.
  • Tell all the healthcare professionals you see, including your dentist, that you’re taking XARELTO®. They should talk to the healthcare professional who prescribed XARELTO® before any surgical, medical, or dental procedure. You may need to stop taking it for a short time before and after the procedure.
  • Tell your healthcare professional about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
