Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2011, Xarelto is a blood thinner made by Johnson & Johnson and their subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Extremely popular and heavily advertised, Xarelto sales were just over $1 Billion in 2015 alone. But like so many of the dangerous drugs we help our clients with, Xarelto has some very serious potentially deadly side effects.
Xarelto, like it’s main competitors Pradaxa and Eliquis is prescribed to a range of patients to help with blood clots. It does this via it’s active ingredient– Rivaroxoban which helps to prevent the blood clots. Xarelto, Pradaxa and Eliquis have all been so popular mainly because they did not require patients to submit to frequent testing or a strict diet like Warfarin. Xarelto has been prescribed for a range of issues, including:
- Knee and hip replacement surgery: Used to help prevent blood clots in the legs
- Atrial Fibrillation: Used to help prevent strokes in those patients with irregular heartbeats
- Pulmonary Embolism: Used to help prevent blood clots in the lungs
XARELTO SIDE EFFECTS & LAWSUITS
Sold on the ease of the pill, many doctors and patients did not realize that just because Xarelto was easy to take did not mean that it was not without it’s own set of very serious side effects. Many Xarelto users have experienced uncontrolled and sometimes fatal internal bleeding. Because the bleeding cannot be controlled, Xarelto users have suffered heart attacks,strokes, gastrointestinal bleeding, severe hemorrhaging and even death. Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals did not do an adequate job of warning patients about the major Xarelto side effects and while the drug has not been recalled, there have been some important warnings issued by the FDA:
- Black box warning– stopping Xarelto early causes risk of bleeding
- Black box warning- Xarelto can contribute to serious head and spinal injuries
So you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of a Xarelto complication and want to know your legal options? You may have even received a letter from them and not sure what to do. You have come to the right place. The failure to properly warn against the serious side effects is something that Xarelto manufactures should pay for. To date, thousands of patients have filed personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against Xarelto for their injuries. Financial compensation is specific to the nature of your injuries but can include all of your current and future medical bills, lost wages and reduced earning capacity, change in the nature of your relationships, pain and suffering and much more.
