Xarelto (rivaroxaban), is a popular blood thinner prescribed to patients for atrial fibrillation and to prevent blood clots. Unfortunately, many patients experience side effects including excessive bleeding, stomach pain, and blood in their urine, among other negative reactions.
Making Xarelto even more dangerous is the fact that no antidote exists to stem potentially fatal excessive bleeding. Without an antidote, additional severe side effects of excessive bleeding from Xarelto include cerebral hemorrhaging, strokes caused by bleeding in the brain, and gastrointestinal bleeding.
Anapol Weiss’ Unsafe Drug Team, which is co-led by Shareholder Greg Spizer, has been at the forefront of efforts to hold drug makers accountable for injuries caused by Xarelto. Greg’s team believes that no patient should ever be blindsided by a life-threatening illness or disability caused by a prescription medication.
If you or someone you know has taken Xarelto and you have questions relating to the potential risks, please contact Greg Spizer today.
