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
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
pain, swelling, or new drainage at wound sites
red, pink, or brown urine
vomit that looks like coffee grounds
