Xarelto Lawsuit

Xarelto offers an easy universal dose that does not require monitoring or lifestyle restrictions. It quickly became a preferred treatment among all patients, including those who were seriously at risk of stroke, pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. Over 1.4 million patients have been treated with Xarelto since its debut in 2011.

Despite the drug’s obvious advantages and popularity, FDA panels continually stated that there wasn’t enough data and that the benefits may outweigh the risk. More than 7,000 Xarelto lawsuits have been filed, alleging serious side effects tied to the drug, such as uncontrolled bleeding that required hospitalization, disabling abdominal cramping, and even death. Unlike other drugs of its class, Xarelto has no known antidote to reverse adverse effects.

FDA Warning:

Since the Xarelto’s release, the FDA has required
multiple updates to the label warning users of
possible risks.

What is Xarelto?

Doctors prescribe Bayer’s billion-dollar blood thinner Xarelto (rivaroxaban) to prevent blood clots and protect people from strokes. It is popular because it requires no blood testing and comes in a convenient once-a-day pill. But the drug may also cause irreversible internal bleeding that can lead to hospitalization and death. Unlike warfarin, a blood thinner that has been around for decades, Xarelto has no bleeding antidote.

Xarelto Complications

One of the most severe side effects of Xarelto is uncontrolled bleeding. When bleeding occurs near a major organ such as the brain, lungs or kidneys, blood flow to that organ is interrupted, causing it to lose some or all of its functionality. Also, pools of blood may form within the body and can cause other severe health risks. Parenchymal or intraparenchymal hemorrhages, also called brain bleeds, are the most deadly. The drug has no known antidote for these bleeds.

Researchers are also finding that the drug may increase the risk of wound complications such as infection and leakage in hip and knee replacement patients. These complications can be severe and require additional surgery to treat. Overall, seniors have the highest risk of side effects.
