Xarelto Manufacturers Fail to Warn of Risks

Xarelto Manufacturers Fail to Warn of Risks

Have you or a loved one suffered the serious and sometimes deadly side effects of the blood thinner Xarelto? If so, you're not alone. There have been more than 2,000 plaintiffs who have filed cases against the manufacturers of Xarelto, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson. The lawsuits allege that Bayer and J&J have failed to warn potential users about the risks of the drug. The lawsuits have grown to such magnitude that they have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the anticoagulant, Xarelto in 2011 to prevent stroke in individuals that suffer from atrial fibrillation. After the initial approval, the drug was expanded to treat deep vein thrombosis. Xarelto is being advertised as the most convenient option for individuals requiring the use of a blood thinner. Warfarin which has been on the market much longer than Xarelto requires blood monitoring and dietary restrictions. Xarelto does not require any lifestyle changes; however, Bayer and J & J has failed to inform the public that there is no antidote for their drug in the event of a bleeding episode. Warfarin users are administered Vitamin K in the event of an injury to reverse the effects of the blood thinner. Physicians and hospital personnel are unsuccessful at controlling bleeding in Xarelto users throughout the country resulting in serious injuries and fatalities. If you have suffered from the usage of Xarelto, it is necessary to contact an experienced drug liability attorney.
