Drug Interactions With Rivaroxaban

Medications That Increase Bleeding Risk
Other medications that have anticoagulant, antiplatelet, or thrombolytic effects may increase the risk of bleeding with rivaroxaban. Always check with your healthcare provider before combining rivaroxaban with any such medications, even nonprescription ones.
 
Additional Information and Notable Exceptions
Rivaroxaban does not interact with vitamin K or foods rich in vitamin K. People sometimes mistakenly assume that it does, as warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®), another oral anticoagulant, interacts with vitamin K.
 
Rivaroxaban does not interact with acetaminophen (Tylenol®). Therefore, acetaminophen is usually the preferred over-the-counter (OTC) pain or fever medication for people taking rivaroxaban.
