Brief Answer: Blood while coughing is may be because of xarelto. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX The bleeding while coughing is because of xarelto that you are taking for atrial fibrillation. In my opinion, you should stop xarelto, get INR done and consult your physician who can prescribe an alternate form of anticoagulation.
