What Is Xarelto?
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) medication used to help prevent the risk of stroke. Xarelto was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011 for patients who had knee or hip replacement surgery in order to reduce the formation of blood clots. Later that year, the FDA expanded approval of Xarelto for patients suffering from atrial fibrillation. In 2012, the drug was fully approved by the FDA for general treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).
What Are Complications Of Xarelto?
Unfortunately, Xarelto has been linked to serious complications. These side-effects can range from mild to life-threatening. Some of the mild side-effects of Xarelto include dizziness, headache, rapid heartbeat, and muscle pain. More serious side effects of the drug include uncontrolled bleeding inside the body near major organs such as the brain, kidneys and lungs. When this happens, blood flow to these areas of the body can be interrupted, causing the organs to lose functionality. Xarelto works by preventing the clotting of blood, and because of this, bleeding cannot be stopped until the drug is completely out of the system.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Xarelto Lawsuit?
Lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Corp. over the blood thinner Xarelto have been consolidated in Louisiana federal court. Xarelto has been linked to serious side effects including internal bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, brain bleed and death.
The Xarelto lawsuits come on the heels of the recent $650 million Pradaxa settlement. Researchers linked Pradaxa, also a blood thinning medication, to more than 500 deaths.
Xarelto blood thinner litigation has been consolidated before U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in the Eastern District of Louisiana, who presided over suits against Merck & Co. over its medication Vioxx. The Vioxx litigation resulted in a $4.85 billion settlement in 2007.
In order to file a Xarelto lawsuit, the patient must have suffered serious hemorrhage, internal bleeding, or death as a result of blood being unable to clot due to the drug.
