Xarelto is the brand name of the drug rivaroxoaban, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved for sale in 2011. The drug is indicated to reduce the risk of strokes, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and blood clots in patients who have undergone hip or knee replacement surgery. (Despite several attempts, it has not been approved to reduce blood clots in patients with coronary artery disease.) Xarelto is manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson) and Bayer AG.
Serious Adverse Xarelto Side Effects
Like similar so-called “blood thinners” (anticoagulants), Xarelto carries a risk of internal bleeding (hemorrhaging) side effects. Xarelto’s internal bleeding side effects cannot be controlled or reversed by physicians, however, making the drug more dangerous than other, conventional anticoagulants, such as warfarin (Coumadin). Some Xarelto users have claimed that they might have suffered the following serious side effects while taking the drug as directed:
- Intracranial hemorrhages
- Gastrointestinal hemorrhages
- Retinal hemorrhages
- Epidural hematoma
- Adrenal bleeding
Because of the risk to users of internal bleeding, some Xarelto users are filing lawsuits against the manufacturers, alleging among other things that the manufacturers:
- Defectively designed Xarelto;
- Failed to warn users and doctors of Xarelto’s uncontrollable internal bleeding side effects;
- Failed to warn users and doctors that Xarelto’s uncontrollable internal bleeding could not be reversed as easily as those of other anticoagulants; and
- Failed to update the products’ warnings in a timely manner.
Some users are alleging that Johnson & Johnson and Bayer should have recalled Xarelto when they knew about the dangers.
