Xarelto Side Effects, Risks, & Lawsuits
Uncontrollable bleeding is the biggest risk associated with Xarelto. This is a danger with any blood thinner, but some medications are less safe than others. If you sustain excessive bleeding while taking Xarelto, you could suffer any number of life-threatening medical complications. These include:
- Intestinal Bleeding
- Rectal Bleeding
- Brain Hemorrhage
These complications can lead to costly emergency room visits, medical procedures, and in serious cases, wrongful death from blood loss. In 2012, multiple deaths related to blood loss were attributed to Xarelto. If you or someone you love suffered severe bleeding while taking Xarelto, contact a dangerous drug lawyer from our firm today.
Dangerous Blood Clot & Embolism
As a blood thinner, Xarelto is designed to prevent blood clots. However, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) received multiple reports of people suffering severe blood clots while taking this medication.
