Harteze 20mg 28’s (Rivaroxaban) is a blood thinner. It’s used to:
prevent stroke in people with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation
prevent and treat blood clots in your blood vessels. These blood clots often form in certain veins in your legs and are called deep vein thromboses (DVT). These clots can travel to the lungs, causing pulmonary embolisms.
prevent DVT after hip or knee replacement surgery
reduce the risk of major heart problems such as heart attack or stroke in people with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD) or peripheral artery disease (PAD)
How it works
Rivaroxaban belongs to a class of drugs called anticoagulants, specifically factor Xa inhibitors (blockers). A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.
Rivaroxaban helps prevent blood clots from forming by blocking a substance known as factor Xa. When factor Xa is blocked, it decreases the amount of an enzyme called thrombin in your body. Thrombin is a substance in your blood that’s needed to form clots. When thrombin is decreased, this prevents a clot from forming.
Heart attack, stroke, and other major heart problems can be caused by a blood clot. Because this drug reduces the risk of forming a blood clot, it also reduces the risk of these problems.
