General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

How do I manage pain medication while on Xarelto?
When I was 15, I had DVT in my left leg that lead to a small case of PE. 19 days in the hospital lead to learning I had May Thurner's syndrome, Factor V Leiden, and Factor II prothrombin mutation. They placed a stent to deal with the May Thurner's syndrome and I had a Gunther Tulip filter for some time. They also started me on Coumadin. The filter was later removed. After several years of taking my 3.0mg of Coumadin daily and getting my blood drawn for PT/INR levels monthly, my arms had developed a good bit of scar tissue. My veins didn't like the constant poking and prodding. So my hematologist just recently switched me to Xarelto at age 18. I've always had rather painful cramps on my monthly lady-time, if you get what I mean, and I'm uncertain as to what kind of pain medication I could use to manage that. I know better than to use NSAIDs, acetaminophen, and naproxen, etc., but I don't know what I CAN use. If any of you have any insight on that, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have two ways to deal with pain. One is the Lumen Photon. The other is the Bemer.

My sister was put on 30 mg daily about a month ago for DVT in her right leg. The doctor has now switched the dose to 20 mg once daily. She suffers from arthritis and always took Advil for it prior to getting the clot. The doctor told her that the only pain medication she can now take is Tylenol (which unfortunately doesn't do as good a job as far as pain relief is concerned as the Advil did.

I was also prescribed Xarelto after I had a pulmonary embolism. The first month on the drug was ok, but into month two, I started developing joint pain throughout my body and the pain spread into my muscles. After two months, I couldn't lie in bed without extreme total body pain. I quit taking that med and I am now injecting myself once daily with Fondaparimux anticoagulant. It took about another full two months for the full effects of the pain to go away after discontinuing Xarelto. It i
