Xarelto is frequently prescribed to individuals who suffer from atrial fibrillation in order to diminish the risk of stroke through the thinning of blood to prevent clotting. However, recent findings have suggested that the drug may actually increase the risk of stroke in some patients. This drug works by reducing the generation of a necessary protein required for blood to aggregate at an injury site. This reduces the risk of an ischemic stroke, or a stroke caused by an obstruction within a blood vessel.
However, while Xarelto works to prevent ischemic stroke, another type of stroke can be caused by its use. A hemorrhagic stroke can occur when the blood vessels in the brain weaken and rupture, causing blood to spill into the space between the brain and the skull. This causes the brain to be deprived of oxygen and causes a stroke. The use of Xarelto has been shown to perpetuate the chance of hemorrhagic stroke occurrence in some individuals.
