What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is an anticoagulant drug that was approved in the United States in 2011 for treating and preventing blood clots. Prior to the release of Xarelto, patients were prescribed other anti-clotting medications such as Warfarin. When Xarelto came on the market, it was advertised as an appealing alternative to Warfarin as it did not require frequent blood tests or a restricted diet.
What are the risks associated with Xarelto?
Like Warfarin, Xarelto was designed to prevent clotting, therefore preventing dangerous blood clots. There are, however, times when it is necessary for a person’s blood to clot, especially when bleeding is occurring near important organs, such as the brain, lungs, and kidneys. For patients taking Warfarin, doctors can administer a Vitamin K antidote to allow the blood to clot. For patients taking Xarelto, there is no antidote, and bleeding can become uncontrollable. This uncontrollable bleeding can lead to serious injury and even death.
