Xarelto side effects prove risky for patients

Xarelto side effects prove risky for patients

After several medical studies, the new generation of blood thinners such as, Xarelto is proving to be no safer than older anticoagulant medications. Furthermore, Canadian scientists compiled data from 901 cardio patients, and were subscribed Xarelto, Pradaxa, or Warfarin blood thinners. According to their findings, Xarelto bleeding rates were low, and there were no significant differences between the groups. Therefore, when Xarelto was introduced to America, it was expected that it would quickly surpass the popularity of its counterparts, yet due to its side effects that has not been the case. Additionally, since Xarelto was marketed as a safer alternative to Warfarin, and did not require blood monitoring, many patients are now suing the manufacturers' due to uncontrollable bleeding.

Xarelto is commonly used to treat deep vein thrombosis, a-fib, as well as many other conditions, which many cause patients to develop blood clots. Although it was found that Xarelto can cause serious and life-threatening blood loss, it also has been linked to the following side effects as well:

  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Edema
  • Bruising
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Dizziness
  • Hemorrhaging eyes
  • Nose bleeds
  • Low blood pressure
  • Reduced platelets
  • Abnormal liver function
  • Brain hemorrhaging
  • Stomach and abdominal bleeding
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Deep vein thrombosis
