Blood Thinning Agent Faces Litigation

Bayer and Johnson & Johnson are facing a legal battle over the harmful side effects of Xarelto, a blood thinning agent marketed as a viable alternative to warfarin. The marketing behind the drug failed to mention the possibility of patients developing serious side effects involving uncontrolled bleeding.

No Antidote For the Drug

With no antidote to counter the drug’s harmful side effects, patients run the risk of bleeding internally. Making matters worse, standard laboratory equipment cannot determine when the harmful side effects occur, leading to delayed diagnosis and more serious injuries.

Xarelto Users Have Reported the Following Side Effects:

  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Brain Bleeding
  • Uncontrolled Bleeding
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke
  • Death
