Xarelto Causes Life Threatening Bleeding in Some Patients

Xarelto Causes Life Threatening Bleeding in Some Patients

If you haven’t heard by now, many lawsuits are being filed against the makers of the popular anticoagulant, Xarelto. Furthermore, Xarelto is a blood thinner used to treat a-fib, stroke, and deep vein thrombosis. In addition, Xarelto has only been on the market a short while, but has caused quite a stir in the medical community, and not in a good way. Many patients that have been taking Xarelto switched from the older blood thinner, Coumadin because it is much more convenient. Likewise, while on Xarelto, patients do not need to have their blood monitored. Sadly, due to the lack of monitoring, many patients are suffering life-threatening bleeding episodes, and some are resulting in death.

Now, patients are suing Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, the makers of Xarelto, for negligence and failure to warn. Although Xarelto has only been on the market since, 2012, the pharmaceutical giants knew the potential risks but did not warn its users. Most importantly, when patients take Xarelto and suffer bleeding side effects, there is no antidote to stop it.
