Xarelto is one of the newest oral anticoagulants, more commonly known as blood thinners, and it is currently the number one prescribed blood-thinning pill. This medication aids in preventing blood clots. Unfortunately, recent studies suggest that the use of Xarelto can cause several life threatening complications. One of the most severe side effects is uncontrolled bleeding. When bleeding occurs near a major organ, blood flow to that organ is interrupted, causing it to lose some or all of its functionality. Pools of blood can form within the body and cause severe health trauma.
The legal team at Raizner Slania is handling claims on behalf of patients who took the blood thinner Xarelto and suffered irreversible bleeding. Bayer AG and Janssen Pharmaceuticals created and marketed Xarelto as a simpler, easier-to-use blood thinner that did not require the tedious medical monitoring of a drug like Coumadin (warfarin). Unfortunately, this medication has many threatening side effects, including:
A growing number of people who were injured or whose family members died after taking the blood thinner Xarelto recently filed lawsuits against Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, claiming the drug caused irreversible bleeding and/or led to wrongful deaths.
Like millions of Americans and others around the globe, patients were prescribed Xarelto to prevent stroke and other cardiovascular issues, adding billions to the pharmaceutical companies’ pockets. Drug manufacturers marketed the blood thinner as convenient and effective; and, patients were immediately attracted to a drug that had a one-size-fits-all approach to dosing unlike previous blood thinners that required dietary restrictions and routine blood work. Mesmerized, patients even paid an increased price for the new medication of about $3000.00 a year.
In June of 2013, however, the Department of Health and Human Services released a letter indicating that there was “limited data on the relative effectiveness of Xarelto,” and that the “promotional materials are false and misleading.” By 2013, 680 cases were reported and over 70 patients died due to complications from Xarelto. It was also discovered that drug companies were withholding information about the risks of the drug even though they were already aware of the dangers.
