Brief Answer:
You can take both.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.


Xarelto is a blood thinner drug and it inhibites the clot formation in vessels.

While atorvastatin is used to maintain the cholesterol and triglycerides level.
So both are different and you should take both according to advise.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.

Dr Sahib, In the last one and a half year my TSH blood tests report have shown high levels around 6 uIU/ML. I was not put on any medicine though. I am 59 years old, non smokers, tea totaller, non obeses male. Simultaneously my cholesterol has gone up to 223 with Triglycerides on 192. Please advise if these two are inter linked or do I need to take medication for Thyriod alone. Rgds Vinod
