Xarelto’s Dangerous Side Effects
- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Cerebral hemorrhage
Xarelto, one of a new generation of powerful blood-thinning drugs, has been linked to an increased risk of severe bleeding. Over 3,000 lawsuits have now been filed by individuals who have suffered side effects after taking the drug.
The side effects of Xarelto include uncontrollable bleeding that may become apparent due to symptoms such as coughing up or vomiting blood or material that looks like coffee grounds, headaches, red or black stool, and spinal and epidural blood clots after a spinal tap or epidural.
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has raised concerns regarding the drug maker’s inadequate warnings to consumers regarding Xarelto’s side effects, but Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals continue to promote the anticoagulant as safe and effective.
In addition to contacting our firm for legal help, you may also want to report any serious drug side effects you have experienced to the FDA. The following is a link to the MedWatch online reporting form – https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/medwatch/index.cfm?action=reporting.home
