Xarelto Can Cause Fatal Internal Bleeding
Xarelto is a blood thinner medication manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceutical. It has been commonly prescribed to prevent blood clots in patients suffering from arrhythmia of the heart; deep vein thrombosis (DVT – blood clots deep within the body); pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs); stroke; and patients who have recently had knee or hip replacement surgery. It can be prescribed as an alternative to Warfarin (Coumadin), a different blood thinner.
There have been Xarelto lawsuits filed against Janssen Pharmaceutical and the co-marketer, Bayer Healthcare, alleging these companies failed to warn patients and doctors of the increased risks of irreversible and possibly fatal internal bleeding when using Xarelto. The allegations assert that if these companies had properly warned of the Xarelto risks, then patients would have instead chosen to take, and doctors would have prescribed, Warfarin, a medication in which internal bleeding can be treated with high dosages of Vitamin K.
The most serious possible 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.
