Xarelto Safe or Deadly??



The use of the medicine Xarelto, while originally believed to help prevent the formation of blood clots, has reportedly led to serious bleeding issues and, ultimately, adverse medical events or even death to numerous patients. Legal remedies may be available to residents who have been injured or lost a loved one due to the use of dangerous and defective drugs, such as Xarelto.

Xarelto was released for consumption back in 2011. It, like many other drugs of its type, was created to reduce a patient's risk of developing deep vein thrombosis, stroke and a variety of other blood-clot-related injuries. The manufacturers of this product promoted it as a superior medication compared to others of its kind. Since its release, millions of consumers have been prescribed this medication, but, unfortunately, numerous patients have also come forward claiming the use of this drug has caused severe medical issues -- or worse.

Some of the common issues blamed on this drug include internal bleeding and brain hemorrhages, among others such as

  • bleeding that is severe or can't be controlled

  • unexpected bleeding, or bleeding that lasts a long time

  • menstrual bleeding that is heavier than normal

  • vaginal bleeding

  • bleeding from the gums

  • black stools (that look like tar)

  • bright red stools (have blood in them)

  • coughing up blood and/or blood clots

  • feeling dizzy or weak

  • frequent nose bleeds

  • headaches

  • pain, swelling, or new drainage at wound sites

  • red, pink, or brown urine

  • vomit that looks like coffee grounds

  • vomiting blood

  • bruising easily

 Stay tuned for more information about the allegations raised against manufacturers Johnson & Johnson and Bayer, the developers of Xarelto.
