What Is Xarelto®?
Xarelto® is a popular blood thinner medication manufactured by Johnson & Johnson and Bayer, two powerful pharmaceutical companies. As an anticoagulant, the drug has been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to help decrease the risk of blood clots and strokes in patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism. Xarelto® has also been approved to lower the risk of stroke in individuals who have atrial fibrillation.
Since Xarelto® was first approved by the FDA in 2011, it has been marketed as an alternative to other common blood thinner medications, as it doesn’t require blood testing or monitoring. There are millions of prescriptions written for Xarelto® each year.
Xarelto® Side Effects and Injuries
While Xarelto®’s popularity has grown, the drug has life-threatening side effects. Among the adverse event reports, cases of uncontrollable bleeding (which can lead to hospitalization and death) are among the most concerning. While an antidote for uncontrollable bleeding was released in 2018 (per Harvard Health Publishing), patients can still suffer Xarelto®-related health events.
George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers is available to speak with victims or families who experienced serious adverse events after taking Xarelto®, including:
- Severe/uncontrollable bleeding
- Internal bleeding/gastrointestinal bleeding
- Brain hemorrhaging
- Blood in urine or stool/kidney bleeding
- Wrongful death
Has the FDA Recalled Xarelto®?
No. Xarelto® is still available on today’s market, with no signs of a recall on the horizon. Yet, the FDA has required two “black box” warnings (the most serious types of warnings) to be placed on Xarelto®’s label.
These warnings alert consumers to paralysis risks after receiving epidurals or spinal taps. The drug could also heighten a user’s risk of thrombotic events if prematurely discontinued.
Has Anyone Received Compensation Through a Xarelto® Lawsuit?
In 2019, the makers of Xarelto® paid $775 million to settle 25,000 lawsuits alleging harm from the dangerous drug. This is good news for many Xarelto® claimants, as this settlement sets a precedent for future cases’ outcomes. However, other lawsuits are still pending across the nation.
Are You Eligible to File a Xarelto® Lawsuit in South Carolina?
Many victims and families who believed they were harmed by Xarelto® have begun filing lawsuits against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson. These lawsuits allege that these pharmaceutical companies failed to ensure Xarelto® was safe for its intended use.
Furthermore, these organizations failed to properly warn doctors and patients about the serious risks associated with the medication. By failing in this obligation, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson may bear liability for any resulting losses.
