11:25 am
xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions.
11:26 am
treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. >> coming up at 4:00, breaking records but not good news, 2015 was the hottest year in recordeddist and that is not all, plus, do you hate how long it takes to download apps? there could be a short cut on at 5:00. >> stranded sheep is back on safer ground after being stuck on a mountain for days. he ended up here, more than 300' from the learn of this mountain in wales. people were worried about the sheep. animal rescuers used ropes to lower themselves and put the sheep in a sack and hoisted the animal to safety. not long after, he jump out of the bag and waste nod time snack ing on grass. he was hungry but he is okay now. for all of us at abc thanks so
