Have you or someone you love taken the anti-coagulant drug Xarelto (rivaroxaban) to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots with respect to your heart arrhythmia (non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF)) and then developed excessive bleeding, hemorrhage, pulmonary embolism or suffered a stroke? A relatively new drug to the market (Xarelto was approved by the FDA in 2011), Xarelto was cited in 968 cases of suspected side effects leading to 78 deaths in the first eight months of 2013. Xarelto, like Boehringer Ingelheim’s Pradaxa has been associated with these serious side effects. The manufacturers of Xarelto, like the manufacturer of Pradaxa has not developed an antidote that can reverse these serious bleeding side effects. Like Pradaxa, Xarelto has been marketed as an alternative to Warfarin (Coumadin).
Cliff Rieders of the Rieders Travis Law firm may be able to help you recover from Bayer Health Care and Jassen Pharmaceuticals, a division of Johnson & Johnson, the drug company that manufactured and sold Xarelto. The manufacturers of Xarelto have failed adequately to warn about about the risk of serious thrombotic and bleeding side effects.
