More Information about Xarelto Lawsuits
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is one of the newest anticoagulants on the market. Since it received FDA approval in 2011, it has quickly become one of the most popular drugs in its class, mainly because it requires far less restrictions than its competitor warfarin.
Xarelto was first approved in July 2011 to reduce the risk of blood clots, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients who have undergone hip or knee replacement surgery. Then in November 2011, it was also approved to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation and for the general treatment of DVT and PE.
Since its approval, it has been prescribed to many patients. However, some health care providers are expressing concern over the drug’s safety. As with a similar drug, Pradaxa, there is no antidote for severe bleeding events that occur in patients taking Xarelto. This significantly increases a patient’s risk for death by uncontrollable bleeding.
