Blood test and rivaroxaban

Has anyone had a blood test while being on rivaroxaban ? At my GP's request after a year on the drug I had one a few days ago . I remember it's for liver and kidney function , but sure there's something else . My Doctor wants to speak to me this afternoon so I'm waiting for the phone call as I can't get in to see him because I'm working . I'm worrying what this test has thrown up , as thinking it can't be too bad as I'd be in A&E by now ! Any thoughts anyone ?

Hello Lisa - I take Apixaban and my blood test last year showed a cholesterol level of 5.3, which triggered a message to contact my GP, so it could be something simple like that.

Hope all goes well.

about a year after taking rivaoxaban my kidney function was a tiny bit compromised and the dose was reduced to 15mg per day. Everything has been fine since for two years.

Thanks for your replys. It turns out that my blood pressure is on the low side ! I did one of those arm in the machine jobs in the surgery and gave the nurse the reading . I've now had the chat with my GP who has advised me to lower my bisoprolol now I'm back on digoxin after a failed ablation . But the blood tests are fine ! Panic over . No A&E over Christmas .

Yup loads - two lots at my regular annual check cos the first came showed up glucose, A check for a kidney function prior to A CT scan and several at the hospital. Think ther is a family of vampires that need feeding near by.

Had no worries .
