Fighting Big Pharmaceutical Negligence
Coagulants, or blood thinners like Xarelto, help treat and prevent internal bleeding and the undesired buildup of blood (blood clot). These can cause strokes, brain hemorrhage, and other potentially deadly events. What blood thinners do is promote the healthy blood flow throughout the body. Those at risk of or having recently experienced hemorrhage or stroke will likely be prescribed this.
The makers of Xarelto, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, as well as the marketers, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, have recently been sued and investigated for misrepresenting the product and failing to warn users of its potential dangers. If you’ve been affected by this drug or your loved one has, our Pennsylvania defective drug attorneys want you to know that you do have options for being compensated.
Potential Risks of Xarelto Use
The main concern with Xarelto is that, because it promotes the freer flow of blood throughout the body, that it can contribute to a bleeding event that is uncontrollable even for doctors. In addition to this possibility, Xarelto can also cause the following:
- Infection after surgery
- Decreased oxygen in the blood
- Bleeding in the brain
- Blood masses
- Swelling of the legs
- Trouble breathing
Xarelto has been marketed and represented as a safe substitute for the coagulate warfarin.
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 lab equipment can't determine when the harmful side effects occur, leading to delayed diagnosis and severe injuries. Those pushing Xarelto never mentioned the potential risks, the virtual inability to stop bleeding events caused by Xarelto.
