Xarelto Bleeding Problems
Xarelto has been prescribed to prevent blood clots in patients suffering from a-fib; deep vein thrombosis; pulmonary embolism; stroke; and those individuals who have recently undergone knee or hip replacement surgery.
The drug attorneys at Kibbey | Wagner are reviewing claims on behalf of patients who took the blood thinner Xarelto (rivaroxaban) and suffered serious bleeding events, stroke, or even death. While bleeding is a common complication associated with anticoagulants, it has been alleged that Xarelto is more dangerous than traditional blood thinners because no antidote exists to reverse its blood-thinning effects. This means that, in the event of an emergency, patients may be at risk for irreversible bleeding problems, including life-threatening internal and gastrointestinal bleeds.
The Xarelto lawsuit filed against the manufacturer of Xarelto alleges these companies failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of irreversible and fatal internal bleeding when using Xarelto. The complaint states that if these companies had properly warned of the Xarelto risks, then the patients would have wanted to take, and the physicians would have prescribed, the drug warfarin instead.
Still, as of this time, there has not been a recall of Xarelto. Investigation into this drug is still ongoing. The Xarelto lawsuits have just started to be filed, and every day there is new discovery regarding the correlation between Xarelto and uncontrollable internal bleeding, and the failure of the manufacturer to adequately warn of this danger to the doctors and patients.
