One of the severe complications associated with patients using Xarelto is the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding. Xarelto is a blood thinner that works by preventing the blood from clotting, greatly diminishing the risk of stroke. However, when blood cannot clot, bleeding that occurs inside the body cannot be stopped. There is no treatment for severe internal bleeding caused by Xarelto. Medical professionals must wait for the drug to leave the bloodstream before attempting to stop the bleeding.
Symptoms of Gastrointestinal Bleeds
Gastrointestinal bleeding, or GI bleeds, can be severe and life threatening. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of a GI bleed:
- Blood in vomit
- Vomit that resembles coffee grounds
- Black or tarry stool
- Dark blood in stool
