Unfortunately, Xarelto may create a dangerous situation where the blood is too thin and uncontrollable bleeding results.

A number of lawsuits have been filed in Federal and State Courts alleging that Xarelto caused uncontrolled bleeding in patients which led to serious internal bleeding or death. A Federal Panel is set to hear arguments in December to determine if a consolidation of all federal cases relating to Xarelto is warranted (see notice for cases under consideration, pgs. 16-18*). Sales continue to skyrocket, though, with the manufacturer reporting $414 Million in revenue from the drug in the third quarter alone, a 68% increase from last year**.

Xarelto is a blood-thinning prescription medicine used to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation, not caused by a heart valve problem. Many lawsuits have been filed against the makers of Xarelto alleging that the manufacturer failed to warn patients and doctors about the dangerous side effects. The makers of Xarelto have also been accused of producing a defective product because they released Xarelto without an antidote to combat its side effects***.
