I take xarelto once...

I take xarelto once daily but I can't find my pill tonight so I don't know if I took it or not. Should I take a dose or skip until my next scheduled dosage.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I have afib. I take diovan once daily, flecinide and metropolis. Had an ablation in January and due to see doctor in two weeks.

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

No allergies. Nothing else to tell doctor.

Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.
I'm reviewing your question now & will post back with the reply soon.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I understand your concern.
As per your description, You shouldn't double down and take two doses of the Xarelto in the same day if you are not sure.

No real risk here in just missing that one dose so just go ahead and take your usual next scheduled dosage.

You would be completely safe.

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.

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.
