What is Savaysa?

Savaysa (generic name edoxaban) is a blood thinner. It is used to prevent and treat blood clots. It slows down the way red blood cells stick together to form clots.

Blood clots can cause deadly heart problems, heart attacks, and strokes. Savaysa is used to help save your life by preventing complications from blood clots.

What is Savaysa used for?

Savaysa is used to prevent and treat blood clots. It can treat blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism or PE) or blood clots in the legs (deep vein thrombosis or DVT) in people who were already treated with a blood thinner shot (injection) for 5 to 10 days. Savaysa can help reduce the chances of having a stroke or blood clot anywhere in the body for people with an irregular heartbeat, known as "atrial fibrillation". During atrial fibrillation, your heart beats too fast and cannot pump blood out of the heart. This causes blood to pool in your heart which then leads to blood clots forming in the heart. These blood clots may travel to the brain, causing a stroke, or they can go to other parts of your body. Savaysa only works in people who have atrial fibrillation that is not caused by a heart valve problem.

What are possible Savaysa side effects?

Bleeding and having a low red blood cell count (anemia) are the most common side effects of Savaysa. Since Savaysa is a blood thinner, it slows down how quickly blood clots. It's possible to bruise more easily while using Savaysa. It will also take longer for any bleeding to fully stop while using Savaysa.

Occasionally, serious bleeding resulting from Savaysa use may lead to death. Tell your doctor if you experience any of the following signs of bleeding:

  • Vomiting red blood or what looks like brown 'coffee grounds'

  • Frequent or long nose bleeds

  • Bleeding from the mouth or gums

  • Bruises that happen without a cause and linger or get larger

  • Tarry black stools

  • Bright red blood in stool

  • Bright red, brown, or pink colored urine

  • Coughing up blood

  • Unusually heavy periods or menstrual bleeding

  • New vaginal bleeding

  • Headaches, weakness, or dizziness

  • Any serious or uncontrolled bleeding

Using Savaysa with other medications can increase your risk of bleeding. Prevent Savaysa side effects by telling your doctor if you use any other prescription or over-the-counter medications. Call your doctor if you are using or planning to use any of the following medications:

  • Aspirin, or other aspirin-containing products
  • NSAIDS such as ibuprofen (Motrin/Advil) and naproxen (Aleve) among others
  • Warfarin (Coumadin or Jantoven)
  • Heparin
  • Clopidogrel (Plavix)
  • SSRIs such as fluoxetine (Prozac) and paroxetine (Paxil) among others
  • SNRIs such as venlafaxine (Effexor) and duloxetine (Cymbalta) among others
  • Rifampin

Since Savaysa is taken to prevent blood clots, if you suddenly stop taking Savaysa, it can increase your chance of having a stroke. If you have an irregular heartbeat and are using Savaysa to prevent blood clots from forming in your heart, then stopping Savaysa can result in new blood clots forming that may travel to your brain and cause a stroke. In view of the risks associated with suddenly stopping Savaysa use, it's important to continue taking Savaysa regularly unless otherwise directed by your doctor. You can help prevent Savaysa side effects by using the medication exactly as directed.

It is possible for blood clots to form in your spine if you have an injection (epidural) or a shot (puncture) in your spine while using Savaysa. This Savaysa side effect is more likely to happen if you have a history of spinal surgery, or repeated spinal injections in the past, or if you take other blood thinners along with Savaysa. A blood clot that forms in your spine may cause you to lose the ability to move (paralysis). Tell your doctor if you have a spinal procedure while on Savaysa, and you feel any muscle weakness, new numbness or tingling, or trouble controlling your urine or stool.

Savaysa can occasionally affect the liver, so your doctor may test your blood to make sure your liver is working properly. Savaysa may also cause a rash in some people. A rare side effect is the development of a serious allergic reaction which involves swelling of the face, lips, or tongue.

What should you know before taking Savaysa?

Do not take Savaysa if you're experiencing any current bleeding, or if you're allergic to any of the ingredients in Savaysa. People with artificial heart valves, or people with narrowing of their heart valves should not use Savaysa. Tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems before taking Savaysa.

Savaysa is not for anyone who has had a history of stomach or intestinal cancer. Tell your doctor if you have or any other medical condition, or if you are planning to have surgery before using Savaysa. Do not use Savaysa if you're pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed. Savaysa has not been tested for safety in children.
