What is Xarelto
Xarelto is a blood thinning medication manufactured by Bayer and marketed by Johnson & Johnson. It was originally approved in 2011 to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients undergoing hip or knee replacement surgery. Xarelto was later approved to prevent stroke in people with a common type of abnormal atrial fibrillation.
Xarelto Injuries and Side Effects
More than 2,100 adverse events and over 150 deaths have been associated with Xarelto since it was approved in 2011. Injuries from Xarelto include:
- Internal hemorrhaging
- Brain bleeding
- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Excessive and uncontrollable bleeding
- Heart attack
- Pulmonary embolism
Xarelto is in the same class of drugs as Pradaxa, another blood thinning medication that is under scrutiny because of numerous adverse events and deaths. Many doctors are concerned because these drugs do not require regular blood monitoring and patients may be unaware of the risk of serious bleeding from Xarelto.
If you or a loved one experienced any of these side effects from Xarelto, contact us today for a free case evaluation.
Irreversible Bleeding from Xarelto
Xarelto has no known antidote, meaning that it can be impossible for doctors to stop severe hemorrhaging in patients taking Xarelto. The manufacturers do not provide adequate warnings about the risk of irreversible bleeding, leaving patients vulnerable to severe injuries and even death.
