Can Xarelto interact with other medications or foods?

Xarelto (rivaroxaban) cannot be taken with other anticoagulants such as warfarin (Coumadin) or with aspirin or any other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It may interact dangerously with many drugs, including some common ones such as ketoconazole, erythromycin and St. John's wort.

Give your doctor a list of all the medications you take so he or she can review them for possible interactions with Xarelto. Include prescription and nonprescription drugs, herbal remedies and supplements.
