About Rivaxa 15 Tablet 14's

Rivaxa 15 Tablet 14's belongs to a class of drugs known as anticoagulants or blood thinner. Rivaxa 15 Tablet 14's is primarily used to prevent and treat deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins) and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung) by reducing blood clot formation.
