What Is Xarelto?
Xarelto is an anticoagulant medicine that acts to reduce the risk of strokes and blood clots and is generally used to treat people with:
- Atrial fibrillation
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism
Xarelto became available on the market in 2011 and is manufactured by Bayer Healthcare and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Xarelto is an attractive option to many consumers because unlike the case with Warfarin, a well-established anticoagulant drug that has been available for nearly 60 years, Xarelto users are not required to have a doctor regularly monitor their blood or adjust their drug dosage. Xarelto has been marketed as a “one size fits all” anticoagulant medicine.
Xarelto’s Harmful Effects Include Death
Many Xarelto users have experienced the harmful side effect of uncontrollable bleeding after taking Xarelto. Medical professionals cannot stop the bleeding in most cases. No known reversal agent (other medication) exists when a Xarelto user suffers from uncontrollable bleeding and, consequently, death is often the end result.
