    Due to complications from my knee surgery I wound up with blood clots(PE) in both lungs and am on Xarelto for 3 months. I haven't had any of the bleeding issues or serious stuff that people worry about but I do notice that I have less energy and frankly I often can't stay awake until even 9pm. I was taking 2 pills a day I'm now on one a day and I take it around 5:45 to 6pm, and as much as I try to I often can't stay awake until even 9 pm.

    In googling this I've discovered it's a pretty common side effect just curious if anybody else takes it and has similar issues? I'm only supposed to be on it for 3 months but lots of people take Xarelto for life(my girlfriends mom does) and if the fatigue thing is as prevalent as it appears, I'm very surprised doctors aren't looking for alternatives.

    No. But I hope you have a speedy recovery.
