Acid Reflux Blockers/xarelto Do Not Mix For Me


I started on Xarelto about 3 months ago. AFter about a week, my legs were in so much pain. I delt with it for about a month. Then noticed the worst pain was after I took my acid reflux blocker. I decided to go off the acid reflux blocker. My legs started feeling better and after about 2 weeks, I was pain free. Unfortunately I had to take a acid blocker and with in 15 minutes, my legs were in pain again. I never had pain in my legs from acid blocker before Xarelto. Again, by 2 weeks my legs felt good being off the blocker. Now my acid reflux is back. I tried a different acid blocker medication, the same thing. My legs are in pain. Does anyone else have a problem like this? I wanted to stay on the xarelto instead of going on warfarin, but I'm going to have to go back to the acid blocker which will cause my legs to hurt while taking xarelto.

Hi Walter, sorry that you have to go through this. I, myself am on Xarelto and Zantac. Have horrible pain in thighs and groin and kinda weird pains every now and again in the whole body. Went to physical therapy even. but had to stop because it just got worse!! Even though Xarelto is a wonder drug, I hope we aren't going to see ads on TV with Lawyers asking...." If you were on drug Xarelto and experienced muscle and ligament pain" Xarelto was pushed quickly though the FDA....not enough studies done. Scares the hell out of me!

Hello, Walter and Karen! How are you both? I am very sorry about what you're both going through.

Xarelto has been known to cause such pain on its own, without the person taking anything else. There have actually been many complaints about it.

Karen, have you tried going off of the Zantac for awhile to see what happens?

Walter, which antacid were you taking?

I just read some scary articles including the FDA ones about the side affects they don't want us knowing about. They just approved the drug for 2 or 3 more studies / diseases with profits more than a billion dollars. Something seems amiss here.
