Chemical Name: Rivaroxaban
Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) is used to treat and prevent blood clots in the veins of your legs (DVT) or lungs (PE); help prevent blood clots in certain people hospitalized for an acute illness who are at risk of getting blood clots and who do not have a high risk of bleeding and reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in adults who have atrial fibrillation that is not caused by a heart valve problem. It is also used together with aspirin to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other serious heart problems in people with coronary artery disease or peripheral artery disease. Rivaroxaban belongs to the class of medication called factor Xa inhibitors, cardiovascular, anticoagulants. It works by slowing your body's ability to clot by selectively blocking one of the clotting factors found in your blood (an enzyme called Factor Xa).
The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product. There is no generic available in Canada. We only dispense generic Rivaroxaban manufactured by Natco Pharma from India, it’s also known as Rpigat.
