Yes Lizzy, I’ve taken it for years, once a day and forget about it (unlike warfarin), if you’re on the 20mg dose don’t forget to take it with some food.

To be as brief as I can I have begun having panic attacks these past 5 weeks, I’m 68 yrs old and have never suffered with any kind of depression or anxiety. I have emphysema and my first panic attack came after a bad side effect after taking some medication. I’ve been prescribed the rivaroxaban today for a suspected blood clot, I know it’s important for me to take it but these attacks happen whenever I so much as think about taking it.
It's up to you whether you take it or not,it is your decision, but you are more likely to die of the blood clot than a panic attack.

Thanks Sqad....
I did take it briefly when I had a clot in my calf but I researched and quickly changed my diet to include natural blood thinners and that's worked up to now. Blueberries, cranberries, almonds, pineapple. In fact anything on the high/very high list here:

also my blood pressure was on the high side but the dietary changes fixed that too.
Note under alcohol in the link, wine/port/rum are all under the high column!
