What should I tell a patient if he or she misses a dose?

If a dose of XARELTO® is not taken at the scheduled time, administer the dose as soon as possible on the same day.

  • For patients receiving 15 mg twice daily: The patient should take XARELTO® immediately to ensure intake of 30 mg XARELTO® per day. In this particular instance, two 15-mg tablets may be taken at once. The patient should continue with the regular 15-mg twice-daily intake as recommended on the following day
  • For patients receiving 20 mg, 15 mg, or 10 mg once daily: The patient should take the missed XARELTO® dose immediately
