Xarelto Lawyers Keep Pulse on Blood Thinner Complaints

Since it was discovered that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) logged more than 2,000 complaints of Xarelto side effects in 2012, plaintiffs’ law firms throughout the U.S. have been actively monitoring the nationwide probe of its safety. In findings published that year by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices (ISMP), 151 deaths following use of Xarelto were also noted in FDA-filed adverse event reports.

Xarelto internal bleeding episodes were shown to be fatal for 7.2 percent of elderly patients, compared to those being treated with warfarin, a similar medication that has been on the market for years. Warfarin bleeding injuries were fatal in 6.5 percent of users, the ISMP found.

Xarelto lawyers are eager to speak with anyone who suffered the following injuries:

  • Internal bleeding (intracranial hemorrhage, spinal and epidural hematoma, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, adrenal bleeding)
  • Stroke
  • Pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

Xarelto LawyerXarelto belongs to a class of new-generation blood thinners known as direct-thrombin inhibitors. Approved in 2011 by the FDA, the drug was originally just cleared in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery who may be at risk for serious blood clots, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Since then, Xarelto has received clearance for the prevention of strokes in atrial fibrillation patients, and to treat pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

In 2013, Xarelto’s manufacturer garnered $1.3 billion in sales of the medication.
