Xarelto - Available in Thailand ?

Recommended Posts

There is a previous thread which is now closed to comments. 

I was wondering if there is any update for 2020.

 

Anyone have any info on the availability and pricing of Xarelto (rivaroxaban) in Thailand (Bangkok) ?

It's available but usually only in (big or international) hospitals.

No change. Still under patent and no generics available. Also still prescription only.

Thank you Sheryl. I guess that means it will be expensive through one of the large Hospitals (Samitiveg / Bumrungrad etc - if they have it). I really want to avoid having to switch to Wafarin for anti-coagulation treatment (after a recent 2nd DVT / PE within 10 years).

 

I was hoping to just follow on from a UK Prescription, it's going to be a pain in the neck to have family send it out every 2 months. 

 

As I understand it, from the previous thread the Patent runs out in 2021 - hopefully generics will become available soon afterwards, I’m wondering how soon though.

so many myths ...xaralto is available WITHOUT prescription at most Fashino (if out of stock they will order take 3 days) roughly 6,000 baht for 28 pills (box is huge..3 time the usual size) take an old box as many staff have no idea what Rivaroxaban or Xaralto are.

after fighting to get thro all the tracking i hope this is of benefit ..first post in roughly 5 years might be on again in about the same time frame....way too much hassle if you protect your data systems.

It should be available.  Also in generic form. Xarelto (rivaroxaban).

This is 100% wrong.  Xarator is a brand of atorvastatin which is a totally different drug.  See (in Thai) http://ndi.fda.moph.go.th/drug_detail/index/?ndrug=6&rctype=1C&rcno=6000033&lpvncd=&lcntpcd=&lcnno=&licensee_no=

My mistake.  I was taking it from Thai documents related to my aunt. 😞.  Anyway I know both drugs are available there.

Aspirin low dose is no substitute for Xarelto. It may be a little bit better than nothing.  Depends on your condition. Ask your doctor

Xarelto is cheaper than  my Lixiana (another bloodthinner) and here in Chaiyaphum Xarelto is availible at the public hospital even..... But Not Lixiana....

I’ve been told its available at the Pharmacy at the second floor above Big-C on Ekammai. 

 

4650 baht for 30x 15mg tablets. 

 

(maybe that means it can be ordered from this pharmacy, I’m not sure if its in stock).

 

Maybe this helps someone .

Why is it so expensive in Thailand?  
Over here in Norway I paid around 1500 baht for Xarelto 30 tablets.
Someone is making a crazy profit ! 

I had my first DVT  and learned my lesson. 3 months on Xarelto and I am 100% cured , my leg is back to normal size and I exercise daily.  I experienced no side effects with Xarelto, its really a miracle drug.

Its only about £10 for 60 tablets in the UK... but thats because its subsidised by the NHS.

 

So, is your Xarelto also subsidised in Norway? 

 

If not and if you can buy it over the counter, you may have found yourself a side business !!!!
