What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is a popular blood thinner medication manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen unit 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, including Coumadin (warfarin), with an added benefit of not requiring blood testing or monitoring. There are millions of prescriptions written for Xarelto each year.
Xarelto Side Effects & Injuries
While Xarelto’s popularity has grown, there has also been an increase in the number of adverse side effects and injuries reported by consumers who took the drug. Among the adverse event reports, cases of uncontrollable bleeding – which can lead to hospitalization or death – are most concerning. There is no antidote or reversal to stop Xarelto-related bleeding events.
George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers is available to speak with victims or families who experienced serious adverse events that lead to hospitalization or injury after taking Xarelto, including:
- Severe / uncontrollable bleeding
- Internal bleeding / gastrointestinal bleeding
- Brain hemorrhaging
- Blood in urine or stool / kidney bleeding
- Wrongful death
Due to these and other concerns over Xarelto, the FDA required two “black box” warnings – the most serious type of warning – to be placed on Xarelto’s label. The warnings alert consumers to paralysis risks in patients taking Xarelto who receive epidurals or spinal taps, and increased risks of blood clots and strokes in Xarelto users with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
Are You Eligible to File a Xarelto Bleeding Lawsuit?
Many victims and families who believed they were harmed by Xarelto have begun filing lawsuits against Bayer and Janssen. These lawsuits allege that the pharmaceutical companies failed to ensure Xarelto was safe for its intended use and that they failed to properly warn doctors and patients about the serious risks associated with the medication. If successful, these lawsuits would allow victims and families to recover monetary compensation for their damages, including medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
