What Is Xarelto?
Xarelto is a prescription blood thinner that is prescribed to reduce blood clotting. Unfortunately, Xarelto is also a potentially dangerous drug that has caused significant injuries to patients taking it.
Can Xarelto Cause Internal Bleeding?
Xarelto can cause excessive internal bleeding and hemorrhaging that cannot be reversed with an antidote. Xarelto can affect organs such as the stomach, lungs, brain, and eyes. In rare cases, severe bleeding from Xarelto can be fatal.
Xarelto is different from other blood thinners because where other drugs used for similar purposes cause excessive bleeding, Vitamin K can stop the bleeding.
What Are the Symptoms of Internal Bleeding?
Symptoms of internal bleeding include:
- signs of a stroke
- loss of vision
- bleeding of the mouth, nose, ears, anus, vagina, or urethra
- black stools
- decreased mental function
Who Manufactures Xarelto?
Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals is the maker of the drug Xarelto.
What Are the Basis of the Xarelto Lawsuits?
Xarelto lawsuits are based on the allegations that Bayer and Janssen have been misleading in their marketing of Xarelto by failing to warn patients about the severe side effects of Xarelto.
Even after the FDA notified Bayer and Janssen about their misleading marketing methods, the drug manufacturer continued to market Xarelto dishonestly, without giving patients sufficient warnings about the dangers of Xarelto.
Another basis for claims against the Xarelto maker is that Xarelto should not have been sold to the public without an antidote.
Further, allegations of negligence against the manufacturer include failing to advise that patients taking Xarelto should be monitored.
