What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is a blood thinner manufactured by Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. Xarelto is used to prevent the risk of blood clots and stoke. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Xarelto to treat pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, and as a preventative treatment for strokes in at risk patients with atrial fibrillation.
Xarelto is marketed as an alternative to the blood thinner Warfarin, touting its benefits of not requiring monitoring or blood testing. Each year, over four million prescriptions are written for the drug Xarelto.
Xarelto Side Effects
Xarelto has become a widely used medication, but with the increase in Xarelto prescriptions has come an alarming incidence of adverse events. The most concerning and common risk associated with Xarelto is uncontrollable bleeding or hemorrhaging.
Hemorrhaging can lead to hospitalization and even death. The problem with the drug Xarelto is that there is no antidote to reverse the bleeding events. Unlike older class blood thinners that could be reversed in the event of bleeding, a Xarelto patient can and often does bleed to the point of serious injury or death.
Zinda Law Group is seeking cases where patients took the anticoagulant Xarelto and while taking Xarelto developed injuries that required hospital treatment, including:
- Severe and uncontrollable bleeding
- Blood in urine or stool
- Internal bleeding, including gastrointestinal bleeding
- Wrongful death
In the year 2012 alone, over 2,080 adverse events were associated with Xarelto, including 151 deaths. The number of injuries and deaths linked to this drug continues to grow. The side effects and cases of irreversible bleeding have prompted thousands of lawsuits against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson.
These lawsuits allege that the drug makers failed to ensure Xarelto was safe for its intended use and failed to adequately warn doctors and consumers as to the risks associated with Xarelto, including the lack of a reversing agent in the event of bleeding.
Those injured by the drug Xarelto may be eligible for substantial compensation, including monetary compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, among others. Anyone who has lost a loved one due to Xarelto may be entitled to receive funeral and burial expenses, emotional pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and much more.
