Drug Watch Reminder: Xarelto

Law Offices of Gary Green is currently investigating cases in which users of the blood-thinning drug Xarelto have suffered an uncontrolled bleeding event. Xarelto is typically prescribed as an anticoagulant to prevent the risk of stroke and blood clots in patients with atrial fibrillation.

In some patients, Xarelto can cause irreversible internal bleeding. When this uncontrolled bleeding occurs near a major organ, blood flow to that organ is halted, causing loss of functionality. Pools of blood may also form in the body, posing major health risks. Because Xarelto is an anticoagulant, the hemorrhaging will continue until the drug has been flushed from the system. These complications can lead to hospitalization and death.

Current lawsuits against the drug claim that Bayer did not adequately warn the public of Xarelto’s potential side effects.
