Xarelto Severe Bleeding Lawsuit?

Xarelto Causes Complications With Severe Bleeding

Xarelto Lawyers Are Filing Lawsuits

The anticoagulant Xarelto has been showing adverse incident  reports of severe bleeding complications.

Bayer and Johnson & Johnson’s Jannsen Pharmaceuticals manufacturer Xarelto and have promoted it as a superior alternative to warfarin (Coumadin), which has been the most widely used anticoagulant for the past  decade.

 Many users have had severe Xarelto bleeding complications and where doctors were unable to control the bleeding. There is no  antidote for Xarelto approved together with the medication to stop the bleeding. 2,081 serious adverse events have been reported  associated with Xarelto in 2012, and at least 151 deaths.

ISMP Report Alerts To Complications From Xarelto

In May 2014, another ISMP report alerted   that complications with Xarelto were “steadily increasing” as more patients  used the medication, finding that the 680 adverse events were reported to the FDA in connection with the medication during the first quarter of 2013. This is more then the number of complications associated with Pradaxa, which is a competing anticoagulant in the same new class of medications. Pradaxa is now facing hundreds of lawsuits in a consolidated multi district litigation lawsuit.

Last year,  the number of patients using Xarelto began to exceed the number using Pradaxa and now we see  adverse event reports involving Xarelto surpass those for Pradaxa.

There could be several thousand Xarelto deaths occurring each year from extensive bleeding from Xarelto.

Xarelto Lawsuits On The Rise

Johnson & Johnson and Bayer are now facing  Xarelto lawsuits claiming that the drug makers failed to adequately warn about the bleeding risks and lack of an effective reversal agent for Xarelto.

Pradaxa Settlement For Extensive Bleeding Victims

Boehringer Ingelheim recently agreed to pay $650 million to settle more than 4,000 Pradaxa lawsuits for victims and their families. We expect a larger  number of cases may be filed on behalf of individuals who experienced uncontrolled bleeding problems following use of Xarelto.

If you or a loved on is taking Xarelto and has had extensive bleeding or signs of extensive bleeding such as:

Lack of energy
Unusual bruising or bleeding
Pink/brown urine
Bloody stools that look red/black and tarry
Coughing up blood
Vomiting that resembles blood or looks like coffee grounds
Severe and constant headaches

Extensive brain bleed in the elderly can have the same symptoms as dementia
