Yes, the liver would have plenty of time to metabolize both alcohol and Xarelto, so neither will get to levels higher than what they would have achieved with either alone.

Of course, chronic use of alcohol can lead to liver disease, but intermittent short term use of alcohol will not interfere with liver metabolism of Xarelto.

So, you do not need to be concerned about metabolism of either the alcohol or the Xarelto in your situation.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

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.
