and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afi not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. 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, you know xarelto p is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary treatment with xarelto ... pask your doctor about xarelto . >> i'm in the holiday spirit, so i'm kicking off tonight's sports with the jolly news that the bruins shut out the pittsburgh penguins tonight at the garden 3-0. fourth shutout of the season for tuuka rask. they play. they dop then it locker room. they play. they play. bruins uniform.
