Do you or a loved one take Xarelto>? If so, it can cause serious side effects—even death.
If you, or a family member, have taken, or currently take Xarelto, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the drug manufacturer to receive financial compensation. Xarelto is frequently prescribed by doctors to reduce the chance of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. It also aids in the prevention of systemic embolism and reduces the risk for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. How do you know if you are eligible to file a lawsuit? If you or a loved one has taken Xarelto and experienced any of the following symptoms you may qualify:
- Internal Hemorrhaging
- Uncontrolled Bleeding
- Blood Clots
These are very serious conditions that can lead to death. As of today, there is no known antidote to reverse the type of bleeding caused by Xarelto. Other symptoms include infections, decreased hemoglobin, hematoma, edema, dyspnea, and more.
What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is an oral anticoagulant blood thinner that has been on the market since 2011. It is the brand name of a drug called rivaroxaban and is often prescribed by doctors in the United States because it treats a variety of ailments. Xarelto has been under a storm of criticism recently because of the manufacturer’s failure to sufficiently warn consumers of its potentially life-threatening side effects. These adverse side effects have even resulted in death, directly attributable to Xarelto.
