Hello,
Welcome to justanswer.com and thank you for your question.
I am going to assist you with your question.

As such, there is no interaction between Xarelto (rivaroxaban) when taken in combination with Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)and zinc.
You can safely take this combination.

You can use blood thinner Xarelto with vitamin c and zinc tablet combination.

I hope this helps.
