The anticoagulant Xarleto, has been used by millions of Americans to reduce the risk of a stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE) and other blood clot related injuries. It has been prescribed to individuals who have had surgeries to prevent recurrence of clots. However, Xarelto can cause serious injuries, including uncontrollable bleeding and death. Because of this, many xarelto lawsuits are being filed across the country.
What makes Xarelto Unsafe?
Despite the claimed rewards Xarelto was said to offer, the benefits have not outweighed the multiple problems and side effects. The concern for individuals taking Xarelto is they could experience severe bleeding from the smallest cut or injury because use of Xarelto makes it difficult, if not impossible, to stop bleeding even in life threatening or trauma situations. This is because there is not antidote to Xarelto, much like a previously recalled blood thinner, Pradaxa.
Why are there Xarelto Lawsuits?
Thousands of people have been impacted by the use of Xarelto and took it without knowing the potential problems it could cause. Despite a substantial number of adverse event reports and other findings suggesting that individuals taking Xarelto have more gastrointestinal bleeds and need more transfusions Xarelto warnings fail to properly address the increased risk for serious and fatal bleeding problems and doctors continued to prescribe the drug.
In addition to the inadequate warnings, Xarelto thus far does not appear to provide sufficient enough benefits to justify the potential life threatening risks. Many lawsuits alleged that a recall should be issued, claiming that the medication is unreasonably dangerous and defective without any effective reversal agent to help offset the risk. Lawsuits also as the drug stop being prescribed until an effective counter agent for the bleeding can be found.
