Lower Xarelto Prices Are Possible Without Sacrificing Quality or Safety
If your doctor prescribed the oral anticoagulation drug Xarelto to prevent the formation of blood clots, pulmonary embolism (PE), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or stroke, you know all about the important life-saving nature of this drug.
The problem is, Xarelto prices are consistently going up, similar to many other prescription medications, especially if you live in the United States. Even with a discount drug card, the cost for a 90-day supply of a 20mg Xarelto prescription without insurance will cost you roughly $15.68 per dose and $1,411.59 USD total.
However, Xarelto prices are roughly 80% lower here in Canada than that astronomical figure in the states. By filling your prescription with PricePro Pharmacy, you would only pay $449 USD, or $4.98 per dose, for a 90-day supply of Xarelto; a huge discount of almost $1,000! Not only that, first time purchasers are also eligible for our exclusive Xarelto coupon.

The next question that usually comes up from first-time customers is:
How Are You Able to Get Such Low Xarelto Prices?
As discussed in this guide, we have what’s known as universal healthcare here in Canada. This means our federal government closely monitors prescription prices to ensure they stay within a realistic and affordable range.
If a drug manufacturer proposes a price for medications the Canadian government deems too high, it won’t be approved for sale.
It’s this federal system that keeps the costs of prescriptions, including Xarelto prices, anywhere from 70-90% off those in the US (in some cases).
Despite these low prices, there is no difference in the quality of our brand-name prescription medications, many of which come directly from the same manufacturers.
Since you can access these discounted prices even as a US citizen, it’s up to you to find a reputable and trustworthy online pharmacy to order from.
By choosing PricePro Pharmacy, you can fill up to a 90-day supply of Xarelto and have it shipped right to your door for the flat rate shipping fee of just $9.95 USD.
As long as you have a valid Xarelto prescription from your doctor, you should be able to transfer it over without hassle or headache. It’s as simple as changing your pharmacy from your local store to ours here in Canada.
