Xarelto is a blood-thinning drug that has recently come under fire over accusations that it could cause serious side effects like hemorrhaging and blood clots. Xarelto is the brand name for the prescription medication "Rivaroxaban." The drug is often prescribed to people to reduce the risk of blood clots and stroke, although it can also be used to treat conditions like deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Serious Side Effects of Xarelto
If you took Xarelto and suffered a serious side effect such as one of the following, we invite you to contact a San Antonio injury attorney at Wyatt Law Firm.
- Bleeding that doesn’t stop
- Menstruation that is more severe and lasts longer than normal
- Gum bleeds
- Blood in your urine or stool
- Frequent headaches, especially if accompanied by weakness or dizziness
Any of these side effects can indicate internal bleeding as well, so seek medical attention as soon as possible.
There have been a number of class action lawsuits against the manufacturer and marketer of Xarelto – Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals. The lawsuits allege that Xarelto poses a risk of excessive and internal bleeding, some claiming that the companies did not adequately warn doctors and patients of the risks Xarelto posed.
