Xarelto Dangerous Drug Lawyer You Can Trust To Put Your Best Interests First

Xarelto (also known as rivaroxaban) has recently been linked to many different dangerous side effects, including severe uncontrollable bleeding. Some of the serious side effects linked to this dangerous drug marketed as a blood thinner include:

  • Blood clots
  • Brain hemorrhaging
  • Hematoma
  • Hemorrhage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Adrenal bleeding
  • Stroke
  • Thrombosis
  • Vomiting blood
  • Death

In addition, there is no antidote to some of the complications caused by Xarelto. The original U.S. label for Xarelto did not contain a warning about the lack of a reversal agent. As a result, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) changed its boxed warning on Xarelto in March 2014.

Why is Xarelto considered dangerous?

Bayer AG and Johnson & Johnson created Xarelto and marketed the drug as a treatment alternative to warfarin (Coumadin), a long-established safe treatment for preventing stroke and systemic embolism. Unlike older anticoagulants, Xarelto belongs to a new type of oral anticoagulant. Manufacturers claim it can be prescribed safely in one uniform dose and without the need for monitoring.

All blood thinners carry the risk of internal bleeding, but older drugs like Warfarin have emergency antidotes to prevent serious harm. Xarelto does not have an antidote, and the drug cannot be flushed out of the system through dialysis. People who suffer bleeding can end up hospitalized. In some cases, the bleeding may be severe or even fatal.

What are symptoms of serious side effects of Xarelto?

Symptoms of dangerous side effects associated with Xarelto cover a wide range. Some of the most common signs that you or a loved one may be experiencing a serious bleeding event due to Xarelto include:

  • Brown or red urine
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Weakness

Why should I hire Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP?

Insurance companies and drug manufacturers sometimes make financial offers to people suffering from serious health problems caused by dangerous drugs. These offers might seem generous. If you receive one, you might think you don’t need legal counsel.

Don’t be so sure. In most cases, insurance companies and drug makers make offers to consumers adversely affected by their products before knowing the true cost of the health problems linked to the drug. The long-term effects of Xarelto can sometimes be very severe – and very expensive. From emergency medical bills, to lost income and long-term physical therapy, you need to consider the total cost, not simply the short-term impact.
