I do suffer from another condition, coronary artery spasms which generally occurs once a week , the bad attacks that is, on any other given day if I have them GTN keeps it in check, I just get that 1 bad attack a week that sends me into our emergency department, if under high emotional stress it can trigger the spasms off and have me in the emergency department up to 3 times week as the GTN loses it's effectiveness and I have built up a tolerance to it. Sorry going a bit off track.
I was diagnosed 5 weeks ago with several blood clots in each lung that had travelled up from my left leg ( calf muscle area ) I believe they call it P E pulmonary embolism. I was put onto Xarelto 15 mg twice daily for three weeks then onto 20mg once daily. Since I started taking the Xarelto 1 - 2 hours after taking it I would get chest pain, that's everyday , I have made mention of this to my GP , emergency doctors and cardiologist consultants when I have had to go to emergency they all say "no it's not a side effect of Xarelto and that this drug has minimal side effects and is well tolerated by everyone." I got hold of a consumer information sheet from the pharmacist and it states that a serious side effect of Xarelto is chest pain or breathlessness ? I also rang Bayer themselves ( the company that manafactures the drug ) they say it is a side effect but is uncommon.
I was taking Xarelto of a morning and chest pain would arrive as I said 1 - 2 hours later so I checked with pharmacist for when is the best time to take Xarelto, I was informed that it doesn't matter morning or night, I swapped to taking it of an evening and so now I get the chest pain 1 - 2 hours after taking it in the evening now, daytime chest pain has stopped since stopping taking it of a morning. I think this is a fair and reasonable way of seeing if it was actually the medication causing the chest pain 1- 2 hours after, doctors still say " No it's not the medication " I honestly think it is, I am sensitive to a lot of medications.
Sorry for the long read but I felt I needed to explain my circumstances first.
Does anyone else get chest pain after taking Xarelto ?
