What is Xarelto and Why is it Dangerous?
Xarelto is an anticoagulant, or blood thinner, prescribed to patients who have recently undergone knee or hip surgery and to prevent clots in patients suffering from:
- Atrial fibrillation (irregular heart beat);
- Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots deep within the body); and
- Pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs).
Patients who have taken Xarelto have suffered serious side effects and complications, including:
- Uncontrollable bleeding;
- Gastrointestinal and other internal bleeding, including cerebral hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain); and
- Blood clots, which sometimes lead to stroke.
Xarelto is a particularly dangerous blood thinner because it has no known antidote, meaning it is very difficult for doctors to stop internal bleeding or prevent potentially-fatal blood loss in the event of a traumatic accident or emergency surgery.
