Been off Xarelto for two weeks now....what an evil chemical cosh that drug was for me...
First thing I've noticed is how poor my immune system is coming off this drug...week one...stomach bug. This week, well since last Wednesday, the worst infection, tonsillitis, which brought along a lovely cold and pus filled mouth abscesses along with a prolonged raised temperature.
GP has prescribed antibiotics today although I'm not sure what, as I needed to put her straight on Clarithromycin and related drugs as shown in the articled I've linked...the whole purpose of my post.
Was wondering how many of us have been prescribed antibiotics, since there seems to be quite and issue with the arrhythmic effects of these drugs which I was unaware of? I knew there was some risk, having researched vitamins and supplement interactions with Sotalol...which I take...hence my informing my GP earlier today...since then found this article...makes an interesting read and extremely nervous about taking other meds!!!
The good news is that I can finally see "me" returning even with the bugs that have beset me, I am so much better off that damned evil Rivaroxaban.
The article about antibiotics....hope it's useful!
Hoping everyone is doing well and enjoying that glorious yellow thing in our blue skies...even if the wind IS icy!
