What is Xarelto?
Xarelto, or rivaroxaban, is a blood thinner that is taken orally. Because of its many uses, doctors prescribe it frequently. Some of the most common reasons Xarelto is prescribed include:
- Reducing risk of blood clots and strokes in people with atrial fibrillation
- Treating deep vein thrombosis
- Treating pulmonary embolism
- Reducing the risk of blood clots in people who have had hip or knee replacement surgery
The goal medical professionals have when prescribing this drug is to thin out their patient’s blood to prevent blood clots, which can be fatal. While there are many positives to this drug, the possible consequences of taking it are severe. If you or a loved one has had a negative reaction to Xarelto, get help from a South Carolina dangerous drug lawyer at our firm today.
What are the possible side effects of Xarelto?
Some of the most common negative side effects of Xarelto include:
- Uncontrolled internal bleeding in the stomach, intestines, or brain
- Ischemic or embolic strokes
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep vein thrombosis
If you or a loved one has suffered from any of these side effects, do not hesitate to get legal representation today, because in the worst case scenarios, some users have died from taking the drug. The manufacturers of this drug failed to properly warn doctors of all the potential side effects of Xarelto, leading to doctors not being able to fully inform their patients. The patients were then not able to make fully informed decisions over whether or not the drug was worth the risk. This is a serious issue that our South Carolina drug liability attorneys are prepared to handle. You deserve to get justice, and we are on your side.
