Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) medication used to diminish the risk of a 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).
Unfortunately, Xarelto has been linked to serious complications. The drugs side-effects can be mild or even life-threatening depending on the situation. 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.
