This pharmaceutical drug is a blood thinner that received FDA approval to treat blood clots and help people at high risk for strokes. However, thousands of patients who took Xarelto (rivaroxaban) say it caused uncontrolled bleeding and made them worse.
Although there are other prescription drugs that treat the same symptoms without the same side effects, there are no medical solutions for Xarelto patients who suffer internal bleeding. Xarelto lawsuits have been filed against a host of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies, including Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Bayer Healthcare and Johnson & Johnson. Overall, there are more than 20,000 individual claims filed on behalf of Xarelto patients who suffered serious personal injury or wrongful death.
Xarelto has been linked to:
- Intestinal Bleeding
- Rectal Bleeding
- Brain Hemorrhage
- Irregular Heartbeat (atrial fibrillation)
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Pulmonary Embolism
