How do I have to wait until the Xarelto is out of my system…

Customer Question
How long do I...

How long do I have to wait until the Xarelto is out of my system to get an accurate result from a CAPS (catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome) test?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes. Xarelto and marijuana

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have survived 4 PE to lungs 20 DVT in left leg 1 clot in portal vein and one in my superior mesenteric vein.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Stress makes it worse. Not taking the Xarelto more than two days. Long trips lasting longer than 4 hours. I have a compression socks. But not knowing is obnoxious

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
