Georgia Xarelto Bleeding Injury Attorney

What Is Xarelto?

Xarelto is an anticoagulant manufactured by Bayer AG and marketed in the United States by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a division of pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson. Following a fast track regulatory review, the FDA approved Xarelto for general treatment of:

  • Stroke

  • Heart Arrhythmia

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

  • Pulmonary Embolism

This drug has also been commonly prescribed to patients who have recently undergone a knee or hip replacement surgery.

What Are the Side Effects, Symptoms, and Risks of Xarelto?

Traditional coagulants and anticoagulants are dosed based on the patient’s weight and (in)ability to clot. Xarelto, however, has been given as a “one size fits all” treatment. This is what leads to injuries due to improper prescriptions and accidental overdoses. When this happens, there are immediate health risks and concerns for patients who suffer bleeding. When bleeding occurs, the patient has to wait for the medication to ware off as there is no antidote. This waiting period can be an extreme health risk and potentially fatal. Potential injuries caused through the use of Xarelto include:

  • Cerebral hemorrhage

  • Decreased Hemoglobin

  • Dyspnea

  • Hematoma

  • Peripheral Edema

  • Severe Internal Bleeding

If you have been taking Xarelto and are experiencing side effects such as:

  • Abdominal Swelling

  • Blood in the Stool

  • Dizziness

  • Easy Bruising

  • Fatigue

  • Pale Skin...

Then you may be at great risk of internal bleeding and other serious complications. It is highly advised that you immediately stop all use of Xarelto and consult with your physician right away.
