XARELTO® is an anti-coagulant that has been prescribed for patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation to facilitate the reduction of the risk of stroke. When the heart has a rhythm disorder that produces a rapid, irregular heart rhythm, it is termed atrial fibrillation. More than 2 million individuals across the United States are affected by this disorder. The disorder can cause an increased risk of blood clots.
Xarelto, generically known as Rivaroxaban, is a popular blood thinning medication. The medication received FDA approval back in 2011 to help prevent blood clots. The drug is FDA approved to treat patients who are at risk for developing blood clots or stroke. This medication belongs to class of drugs called blood thinners. These blood thinners are known as thrombin inhibitors and work by preventing an essential component of blood clots from forming.
Because internal bleeding is often hard to diagnose, it is important for patients using blood thinners to be aware of unusual bruising, swollen joints or similar symptoms and report such problems to their physician immediately.
Have you seen a commercial about Xarelto Lawsuits?
Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of Xarelto for failing to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of spontaneous and uncontrollable internal bleeding when using this medication.
If you have suffered from potentially dangerous side effects during or after taking Xarelto, you may be able to file a lawsuit against Xarelto manufacturers.
Plaintiffs who bring successful lawsuits against Xarelto drug manufacturers may be eligible to receive compensation for their past and future medical bills, and pain and suffering. Blood thinners lawsuits are filed individually by each plaintiff and are not class actions.
