Xarelto is an anticoagulant produced by pharmaceutical companies, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson. This blood thinner has been highly publicized and endorsed by big names like Arnold Palmer and ten-time NBA All-Star Chris Bosh.
Xarelto is a blood thinner that is prescribed in order to prevent life threatening blood clots that will likely create a blood flow blockage in the body. Unfortunately, Xarelto has been connected with a heightened chance of a user experiencing serious negative side effects like uncontrollable internal bleeding that can result in death or serious injury to the user.
This has led to many people filing Xarelto related lawsuits all across the United States.
Xarelto Has Been Linked To Serious Internal Bleeding
Xarelto was originally permitted for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2011 and then safety information was later changed in 2014 to highlight updated Adverse Reactions that include severe bleeding. The FDA first approved Xarelto to be used to prevent blood clots in people who have been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT), Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), PE, stroke, and in people who have had hip or knee replacement surgery.
There have been medical studies performed that have correlated Xarelto usage with serious unfavorable side effects that in some cases have led to a patient sustaining grave injuries and in the worst cases, the death of a patient.
The most frequently documented adverse effect that results in injury, has been internal bleeding that cannot be reversed, such as gastrointestinal bleeding, brain hemorrhage, heart attacks and strokes, and pulmonary embolisms. All of these adverse effects have been reported by some people using Xarelto.
