Have you suffered from internal hemorrhaging or uncontrolled bleeding as a result of using the drug Xarelto®?
Individuals who are at an increased risk of blood clot formation are advised to take blood thinners by their doctors. Xarelto®, the number one blood thinner in the U.S. as of 2014, is used widely to help dissolve blood clots which could turn fatal if they traveled from their point of formation (usually deep within a vein located in the person’s leg) to the lungs or the brain.
Unfortunately, the use of Xarelto can also lead to serious internal bleeding issues which can be difficult to resolve, and which were simply not adequately marketed or labeled.
Despite Xarelto’s usefulness in thinning blood and breaking up clots, the drug has come under scrutiny due to its inability to stop bleeding once it starts. This can lead to massive blood loss in just a few hours, necessitating hospitalization and blood transfusions. According to records, 65 people have died due to uncontrolled bleeding as a result of taking Xarelto. This blood thinner closely imitates Pradaxa, which has also been linked to tens of thousands individuals experiencing adverse effects, leading to dozens of lawsuits in Dallas and the whole of Texas.
Xarelto has serious and life-threatening side effects, with some of these being:
- Major bleeding
- Pulmonary embolisms
- Urinary tract bleeding
- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Brain hemorrhaging
- Spinal hematomas
- Adrenal bleeding
- Unusual bruising
- Inability to move extremities
If you were taking Xarelto and experienced one or more of these side effects, our Xarelto lawyers may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve through a drug injury claim or lawsuit. If a loved one has died as a result of this medication, your family may also be able to hold the drug company liable for your loss.
Xarelto’s flaw lies in the fact that once bleeding occurs, it cannot be stopped until the drug is flushed from the victim’s system. Unlike other blood thinning drugs, Xarelto has no antidote or flushing options. Xarelto is made by pharmaceutical giant Bayer, and it is marketed in the United States by Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Xarelto® is a brand name for rivaroxaban, a prescription drug used to prevent and treat strokes.
