Xarelto Linked to Severe Bleeding

Xarelto Linked to Severe Bleeding

Have you ever heard of a medication working too well that it caused harm? Well, unfortunately, some do, and the result is more harm than good. Likewise, such is the case with the blood thinner, Xarelto. The popular anticoagulant, Xarelto is used to help patients with risk of stroke, a-fib, and deep vein thrombosis by thinning their blood. Sadly, although Xarelto is keeping patients blood thin, it is doing it too well in some instances. Consequently, some patients are suffering life-threatening bleeding episodes, and even facing death.

Unlike Coumadin, which is another popular blood thinner, there is no antidote to stop bleeding with Xarelto. Coumadin bleeding can be stopped with vitamin K, but there is no way to stop Xarelto bleeding once it’s begun. While on Xarelto, users do not need to have routine blood monitoring that has resulted in devastating consequences.

Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals are the makers of Xarelto, and sadly new risks are involved with the drug, yet the makers did not communicate them with their patients. Additionally, the makers of Xarelto heavily marketed the drug as a convenient counterpart to other past blood thinners. Now, families and Xarelto patients that have been injured or killed are looking for answers and filing lawsuits against the makers for negligence.
