I am continually bruising very badly when I bump myself on the arms. And I mean gentle bumps. When I was hospitalized a nurse had difficulty starting an IV and poked and poked. The result was I bled undermthe skin from wrist to elbow and a little above. This really freaked me out, but no one seemed to think it was a big deal. I wanted to sue, but my doc said "do you want to have a stroke?" "Keep taking the xarelto"...so I just keep bruising...looks like my spouse is abusing me!

coughing up blood, blood in my mouth in the morning
I have been on Xarelto and I stop it since I bleed all the time from it. I just started it again this morning and blood was in my back of my throat coughing it up. Its more then a teaspoon. My doctor will not take me off of this stuff.I can taste the metallic taste in my mouth. I am sick of tasting blood.

Xarelto and Eczema
I have taken Xarelto for 7 months. I have since developed serious eczema on all parts of my body. Could be a coincidence. Just wandering of other Xarelto users have had skin problems? Let me know.

I was on Xarelto for a few months after getting a DVT post knee surgery (I'm a 31 y/o male), and now (after being off of Xarelto for a few weeks), have developed severe eczema on my hands. I have never had a skin issue in my lifetime.

Had been on Coumadin for several years for recurrent DVTs and had periods of rashes and itching. In April I had more leg clots while on Coumadin, so doctor switched me to Zarelto. Clots are gone, rashes are gone, but skin itches more, just about everywhere: scalp, back, face, arms. Leg itching I think is due to previous dvts causing varicose veins and pooling.

I have developed it around my eyes and behind my ears since starting Xarelto.
