Rivaroxaban is the active ingredient in Bayer’s prescription drug, Xarelto®. Xarelto is a widely-used anticoagulant. Anticoagulants are used to thin the blood for patients suffering from deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and to help lower the patient’s risk of stroke or heart attack. DVT is a serious, life-threatening condition where the patient experiences a blood clot in the lower extremities of their lungs (pulmonary embolism). Blood thinners help keep pulmonary embolisms from forming.
Although blood thinners are designed to help blood clots from forming, some blood thinners do not work how they are promised to. Xarelto was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the public market in 2011 and was heralded as a major breakthrough in the anticoagulant market.
How can a Xarelto lawyer help patients and their loved ones?
When a new drug is brought to the FDA for approval, the manufacturer is required to list all potential side effects on its label. Bayer failed to mention their anticoagulant may cause uncontrollable internal bleeding. Other blood thinners on the market feature an antidote in case uncontrollable internal bleeding happens. Xarelto does not have an antidote for patients that experience uncontrollable internal bleeding. For this reason, many people are searching for a Xarelto lawyer.
If you or a loved one have suffered from uncontrollable bleeding after taking Xarelto, you may want to find an experienced Xarelto lawyer. The Hollis Law Firm is experienced in helping patients who have experienced life-threatening side effects from bad drugs.
