Carrollton Xarelto Lawsuit Lawyer
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a blood thinning drug marketed by Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals. The sales of this aggressively marketed drug total over $320 million. Prior to the United States Food and Drug Administration’s approval of Xarelto in 2011, the anticoagulant Warfarin was the only drug approved to treat atrial fibrillation. Despites its phenomenal sales, Xarelto has been linked to an increased risk of serious bleeding, strokes, and clots in some patients.

Xarelto Side Effects
A recent study conducted by the Department of Medicine at New York College Metropolitan Hospital Center found an increased bleeding risk among Xarelto patients who:
- Undergo hip surgery: The risk of serious bleeding doubles for hip surgery patients prescribed Xarelto.
- Take blood thinners while ill: Patients who are seriously ill face a threefold increase in the risk of bleeding events.
- Suffer from Acute Coronary Syndrome: Xarelto is believed to more than triple the risk of major bleeding among patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome.
Unlike the drug Warfarin, Xarelto has no counteracting drug that can reverse bleeding events. This significantly increases the risk of serious injury and death in patients taking the drug.
Thousands of lawsuits are currently pending against the makers of Xarelto and more are soon to follow. Some cases are being condensed into multidistrict litigation actions that could simplify proceedings and lead to greater awards. Anyone who has experienced a Xarelto injury or lost a loved one due to the drug should act soon as they have a limited time in which to lawfully bring an action against the dangerous drug manufacturers.
