Xarelto is a blood thinner manufactured by Bayer and Johnson & Johnson's Janssen Unit. It is used to decrease the risk of stroke and blood clots. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Xarelto to help treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), and as a preventative treatment for strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation (A-Fib).

Xarelto is marketed to users as an alternative to Coumadin / Warfarin with the benefit of not requiring blood testing or monitoring. There are over 4 million prescriptions written for Xarelto each year.

Xarelto Side Effects

While Xarelto has become a widely used medication, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of adverse reports of harmful side effects. Some reports have noted uncontrollable bleeding, which can lead to hospitalization or death. Xarelto does not have an antidote or reversal to stop bleeding events.

Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC is seeking cases where patients took the blood thinning drug Xarelto and while taking Xarelto developed injuries that required hospitalization, including:

  • Severe or uncontrollable bleeding
  • Internal bleeding, including gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Blood in urine or stool
  • Wrongful death

In the first three months of 2013, close to 700 serious adverse event reports were associated with Xarelto. These side effects and other cases of irreversible bleeding have prompted a number of lawsuits against Bayer. The lawsuits allege that Bayer failed to ensure that Xarelto was safe to use as intended and that the pharmaceutical company failed to adequately warn doctors and consumers about risks.
