What Is Xarelto?
Xarelto (rivaroxaban), often referred to as a “blood thinner” is actually an anticoagulant that is used to dissolve blood clots and prevent the formation of new clots. Clotting is an important factor in healing, as it stems the flow of blood from open wounds. Unwanted clotting, however, can cause serious, life-threatening conditions.
Blood clots that form in the deep veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis), for example, can break loose and travel through the bloodstream to the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism. People with atrial fibrillation that is not caused by a valve problem are prone to clots forming in the heart, and if those clots travel to the brain, they can cause a stroke. The formation of blood clots is a particular concern for patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery as well.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
The expense of prescriptions like Xarelto places financial burdens on people who are already coping with the stress of illness. At Simplefill, we know that no matter how effective a medication may be, you can’t benefit from it if you can’t afford to pay for it. That’s why we are committed to helping patients get help covering the cost of Xarelto. When you enroll in our program, our advocates will help you find the best Xarelto prescription assistance programs, then help you apply and enroll.
How Does Xarelto Work?
Blood thinners don’t actually thin the blood. Instead, they work in one of two different ways: by preventing platelets from sticking together and forming clots or by blocking the action of certain blood proteins that are essential to the clotting process. These proteins and enzymes are referred to as “clotting factors.” As an anticoagulant, Xarelto belongs in this second group.
Because Xarelto, like all blood thinners, prevents normal clotting, patients taking it may find that it takes longer for bleeding to stop. For this reason, it’s important to let dentists and doctors know in advance of any planned procedures that you’re taking Xarelto.
