Xarelto Side Effects & Complications
Studies have shown Xarelto to produce numerous negative side-effects ranging from mild to severe. Less serious complications include headache, muscle pain, nose bleeds and dizziness. More serious complications associated with Xarelto use include uncontrolled internal bleeding. There are serious consequences of internal bleeding that can occur, such as stroke or cerebral hemorrhage. Internal bleeding near vital organs can cause them to lose functionality, which can be life-threatening.
Xarelto & Uncontrolled Bleeding
Xarelto has been linked to severe cases of uncontrolled internal bleeding. In fact, a recent study examining the safety of the drug found that 73 percent of 16,041 participants experienced side-effects from the drug. The most common complications of the study were occurrences of internal bleeding, and people who took higher doses of Xarelto were more likely to experience bleeding. Additionally, it has been linked to several deaths from internal bleeding. In these rare situations, the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the drug manufacturer.
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.
