Is anyone taking Rivaroxaban and experiencing digestive problems? I have IBS a Hiatus Hernia and have had gastritis in the past. I'm sure that the Riv I have been taking for 3 months has made it worse? I am reluctant to take Lansoprazole or Ranitidine as the latter gives me headaches. I have been using DGL Licorice to help with the stomach discomfort and Slippery Elm powder and both have helped, but I'm still having days when my gut aches. I asked if I could change to Apixaban, as I found out ( via the Royal College of Pharmacist web site) that it is gentler on the stomach. My GP said she couldn't prescribe it, as in Gloucestershire they have gone for Rivaroxaban. She would however, ask the senior partner in the practice if I could have it.
Anyone have similar experiences? Has anyone changed from Rivaroxaban to Apixaban because of digestive problems?
