I have been on Rivaroxaban for two weeks now and have had a terrible time. Abdominal aches, diarrhoea and vomiting. I have been taking it at breakfast time, but as I am at Slimming World, breakfast was usually just a couple of pieces of fruit. My GP suggests staying on it for another couple of weeks at least, as it might take a while for my body to get used to it. I have read that it needs an acid environment in the stomach, so the last two days I have had a full breakfast of bacon, egg, mushrooms and tomatoes followed 5 minutes later by the tablet. Touch wood, it seems to be ok, but I don't particularly want such a lot to eat every morning. Has anyone got any advice please.
