Round Rock Xarelto Lawsuit Lawyer
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a prescription blood thinner manufactured by Bayer Health Care and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary. Originally marketed as a superior alternative to the common anticoagulant Warfarin, new evidence has emerged as to the unreasonable dangerousness of Xarelto.
The makers of Xarelto are being sued across the country by individuals who have experienced severe internal bleeding due to the drug, resulting in serious injuries and even death. Individual and class action lawsuits are now alleging that the drug makers failed to warn patients and the medical community as to the risks associated with the drug and failed to issue a recall when the dangers of the drug became undeniably clear.
Xarelto Side Effects
A number of serious side effects have been associated with the drug Xarelto. The most serious is internal bleeding or hemorrhaging. When a patient taking Xarelto starts to bleed from even a minor injury, there is virtually no way to stop the bleeding. This risk, one not revealed by the drug makers, is due to the drug’s mechanism.
Coagulation of the blood is dependent upon Vitamin K. Vitamin K is involved in production of the clotting agent thrombin. Traditional anticoagulants work to disable Vitamin K in order to prevent clots, making it possible in the event of a bleed to administer high doses of Vitamin K to halt it.
In contrast, Xarelto actually prevents the production of Vitamin K. Accordingly, administration of Vitamin K will not stop a bleed. In fact, there is no effective reversal agent currently available today. The drug makers did not reveal this vital fact when marketing Xarelto, leading to many patient injuries and deaths.
Other dangerous side effects associated with Xarelto include hemorrhagic stroke, brain hemorrhage, gastrointestinal bleeding, and wrongful death due to bleeding problems.
