Xarelto is manufactured by Bayer and marketed by Johnson and Johnson in an effort to put back previous anticoagulant and blood thinning drugs. It was approved by the FDA in 2011 for treatment of blood clot formation and for patients suffering from pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. It is not like warfarin, a trusted drug for preventing blood clots for last half a century, Xarelto does not have a solution to stop uncontrolled bleeding, which can be fatal at times. Within the first two years of hitting the market, Xarelto reaction began and included serious adverse drug reaction reports including several deaths. It has been the highest number of adverse effects reported by a single medication.

As talked about above there is no antidote to Xarelto – a reality that the Xarelto manufacturers failed to share with doctors and the users. If the blood thinner Xarelto causes bleeding there is no method to stop it, which patient claims has resulted into many severe bleeding experiences, some of which lead to death. Xarelto is not like earlier drugs which were intended for the same use because laboratory testing is not conducted to create a personified healing plan.
Not only Xarelto led to uncontrollable bleeding, there is also an eminent risk for old aged patients using Xarelto. They may experience a higher risk of cranial bleeding that can cause disability or be fatal. Patients and users of Xarelto are warned that taking the drug after a spinal episode can result in paralysis. The risk gets higher after a fall.
You can contact and get your case evaluated at no cost if you or a loved one has suffered any injuries or damages after taking Xarelto.
