Exjade (deferasirox) is an oral iron chelator approved by the FDA in 2005 to prevent chronic iron overload in patients that have been subjected to multiple long-term blood transfusions.

Since it was brought to market, the drugs has been marred by controversy surrounding the discovery of several dangerous health complications. These previously undisclosed or understated complications include:

  • Renal impairment
  • Hepatic impairment
  • Gastrointestinal hemorrhage
  • Gastrointestinal ulceration
  • Gastrointestinal perforation
  • Severe skin rash/reaction
  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS)
  • Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEX)

What Is Key Exjade Gastrointestinal Complication Information?

Lawsuits naming Novartis Pharmaceuticals as the primary defendant in Exjade dangerous drug allegations were first filed in late 2015.

These lawsuits were filed as reports began to surface that Novartis had agreed to a settlement with the U.S. Federal Government worth a reported $390 million, in response to a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York claiming the company paid medical professionals illegal kickbacks to promote Exjade prescriptions. The lawsuit also alleged that the payments were used to influence medical professionals to refrain from disclosing potentially deadly Exjade side-effects to their patients.

One of the undisclosed complications was discovered to be severe gastrointestinal complications, a condition that can be identified by:

  • severe stomach/abdominal pain
  • black/tarry/bloody stools
  • vomit that looks like coffee grounds
  • severe stomach/abdominal pain
  • black/tarry/bloody stools
  • vomit that looks like coffee grounds
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea

Gastrointestinal complications stemming from Exjade use can culminate in three different specific gastrointestinal conditions:

  • Gastrointestinal Ulceration
  • Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage
  • Gastrointestinal Perforation

Suffering from either of these conditions often lead results in painful internal bleeding of the stomach or intestines that requires immediate medical attention.

Due to the undisclosed and deadly nature of Exjade gastrointestinal complications, settlements in Exjade lawsuits are expected to skyrocket as more information and victims become available.
