Xarelto® is Dangerous Because it is Associated with a Wisk of Uncontrollable Bleeding
Unlike older blood thinners such as warfarin, Xarelto® has no known reversal agent, antidote or other medicine that can be given to stop the bleeding. This leaves patients at risk for serious complications, including bleeding to death. If you have experienced complications, contact our Arizona dangerous drugs attorneys right away by calling 602-777-7000.
Xarelto® ‘No Blood Monitoring’ Claim Exposes Patients to Unnecessary Risk
Xarelto® is marketed as a superior alternative to warfarin because patients are not required to visit their doctor or a clinic on a regular basis for blood tests. However, some in the medical community have recommended infrequent blood tests for Xarelto® patients to make sure that patients receive the correct dose and are protected against both strokes and bleeding. The companies that manufacture and sell Xarelto® have resisted a blood-testing requirement because they believe they will sell more Xarelto® if they can market it as a more convenient drug than competitors such as warfarin, which require monitoring.
Complications that could be caused by Xarelto® include:
- Internal bleeding
- Bleeding in the brain
- Bleeding resulting in death
