When you can safely stop taking Xarelto (rivaroxaban) depends on why your doctor prescribed it. For instance, if you're taking it to prevent blood clots from forming after joint replacement surgery, your doctor will likely advise you to take Xarelto for 12 days following knee replacement and for 35 days following a hip replacement. However, if you have a condition that poses an ongoing risk of blood clots, you may need to be on Xarelto indefinitely.
Do not stop taking Xarelto without consulting your doctor, since stopping it may put you at risk of stroke.
