Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a prescription blood thinner developed by Janssen Pharmaceutical — a unit of Johnson & Johnson — and is used to treat patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (heart rhythm disorder). The medication works to reduce the risk of stroke, systemic embolism (blood clots), vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism by inhibiting a protein involved in the blood clotting process.
While Xarelto may help reduce these risks, the drug poses serious — potentially life-threatening — side effects. Many who have taken Xarelto have suffered uncontrollable bleeding, hematoma, brain hemorrhage, abnormal liver function and reduced platelet levels.
There Is No Way To Reverse Xarelto's Life-Threatening Side Effects
While other blood thinners present similar risks, antidotes are available. Xarelto has no antidote. If you take Xarelto and experience one of these life-threatening conditions, there is no medical way to reverse it.
If you or a loved one took Xarelto and experienced serious bleeding or another medical complication as a result, you may have a legal claim. At The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C. in Denver, we can help. Our lawyers represent individuals throughout Colorado, Wyoming and Oklahoma who have been injured by dangerous drugs, including Xarelto. We will pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
