Xarelto Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
Blood clots can be a danger after certain surgeries and other medical procedures. Blood thinners can help reduce the risk of blood clots that can cause an aneurysm. The problem with blood thinners is that they can also come with risks, including excessive bleeding or hemorrhaging. Xarelto was marketed as a replacement for the blood thinners like Warfarin that can cause excessive bleeding. Unfortunately, it is not safe for everyone and can lead to severe bleeding and even death.
The concern with Xarelto is that it was marketed to be safer for patients over Warfarin and did not require constant testing for bleeding safety. It was prescribed for almost anyone, yet some people have had severe reactions and should have been tested for compatibility with the drug. In certain people, the drug can cause internal bleeding. What is worse, is that unlike Warfarin, there is not a medication that can reverse the excessive bleeding. Dialysis can be used to quicken the filtering of Xarelto out of the system, but this is not always effective.
