Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a blood thinner that is used to treat blood clots, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and pulmonary embolisms. It has been sold by numerous pharmacies and prescribed by doctors since 2011, resulting in very serious injuries and and even death in patients across the United States. It is the second FDA-approved drug in the anticoagulant family that is considered an alternative to warfarin, which is a problematic drug that requires patients to drastically change their diet and adjust the dosage requirements. In contrast, Xarelto is easy-to-use and is taken once or twice per day.
The problem with Xarelto is that there is no effective reversal agent. This means that in the event of a traumatic accident or bleeding in the brain, doctors may have difficulty stopping bleeding in patients who are on Xarelto. Additionally, Xarelto has been linked to a higher risk of bleeding in patients who are acutely in. The side effects of Xarelto have been downplayed significantly, which is extremely dangerous and is one of the main reasons for lawsuits against the drug-makers.
