Bayer’s billion-dollar blood thinner Xarelto® is being prescribed to American patients to prevent blood clots and strokes. However, the manufacturers of the drug Xarelto® are being sued for not properly warning consumers about the risks for life-threatening side effects.
If you or a loved one has suffered any of the below side effects after taking Xarelto®, please fill in the form and you may be eligible for Financial Compensation and Paid Medical Bills:
Xarelto is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceutical that has been widely prescribed to prevent blood clots in patients suffering from atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat); deep vein thrombosis (blood clots deep within the body); pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs); stroke; and patients who have recently undergone a knee or hip replacement surgery. It generally is prescribed as an alternative to warfarin (Coumadin), a blood thinner that began to be used in 1954.
Xarelto Side Effects
The most serious potential side effect, complication and risk caused by Xarelto is severe internal bleeding that can result in death. Currently, there is no known cure to reverse the type of internal bleeding caused by Xarelto.
Other potential injuries caused by Xarelto include infection associated with hip or knee replacement surgery; decreased hemoglobin (a substance that carries oxygen in red blood cells); bleeding in the brain; hematoma (a mass in the blood); peripheral edema (swelling of the lower limbs); and dyspnea (difficulty breathing).
What are my options as a user of Xarelto?
