Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand that you are not sure, whether you have taken the dosage or not.

Xarelto is a anticoagulant (blood thinner) which prevents the formation of blood clots.

At this time, I would recommend that you should avoid repeating the dosage.
Even if you missed one dosage, it would not have any negative effect on your health. You would be completely safe.
It should not be repeated in 24 hours.

You can count the total number of pills left in your pack.And if it's confirmed that you hadn't taken dose then you can take it.

Otherwise don't confuse and I would suggest, that you need to wait till tomorrow and then take pill at same time from tomorrow.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Waiting for your response.
