What Is Xarelto?
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a prescription medication that acts as a blood thinner to prevent the formation of blood clots. Xarelto is manufactured by Bayer HealthCare and marketed by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary.
Xarelto is used to treat deep vein thrombosis, which is a blood clot that can occur after certain types of surgeries. Deep vein thrombosis can lead to blood clots in various areas of the body, including the lungs. Xarelto is also used to lower the risk of stroke due to the blood clots in individuals with atrial fibrillation.
Side Effects of Xarelto
There have been more than 2,000 reported adverse events and 150 deaths associated with the drug Xarelto since its introduction in 2011. Serious side effects of Xarelto include:
- Internal bleeding or hemorrhaging
- Excessive and uncontrollable bleeding
- Brain bleeding
- Heart attack
- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Pulmonary embolism
Uncontrollable Bleeding from Xarelto
The most serious side effect associated with Xarelto is uncontrollable bleeding. This can lead to hospitalization and, in the most serious cases, death. Xarelto has no known antidote, so it can be difficult or even impossible to stop bleeding in some patients.
The drug makers of Xarelto have yet to provide a method for stopping the bleeding caused by Xarelto. Unlike older class anticoagulants, the administration of Vitamin K will not stop a bleed when the patient is on Xarelto.
Problems with Xarelto FDA Studies
Several lawsuits have called into question the FDA approval process for Xarelto. Reviews of the clinical trials involving the drug reveal systematic errors.
In fact, in nearly half of all clinical trials for the drug Xarelto, the drug received the most severe rating from the FDA, indicating troubling findings that should have been significant enough to require additional regulation.
