Xarelto is a prescription drug thinner sold for years without an antidote. Nearly 3,000 lawsuits have now been filed against the manufacturer by individuals who suffering serious bleeding. Introduced in 2011, this drug was developed by Bayer Health Care and Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
Xarelto was prescribed for patients as a modern version of warfarin. Warfarin was problematic for patients because it required dietary restrictions and constant dosage adjustments. In comparison, Xarelto comes in a pill format and the user needs to take it once or twice each day.

Why Xarelto Poses Bleeding Risks
With no antidote to the side effects and treatment offered by Xarelto, patients are at increased risk of major bleeding events in an emergency situation. If a patient is bleeding in the brain, in emergency surgery, or suffers injuries in a car accident, physicians may be unable to stop the bleeding in a Xarelto patient. These concerns make up the foundation for individual and class action Xarelto lawsuits.
Although doctors are able to reverse the impacts of warfarin in the event of an emergency, this is not the case with Xarelto. Patients who have filed a Xarelto lawsuit allege, among other things, that doctors should have been properly informed of this risk in order to evaluate whether a patient was better off taking warfarin.
FDA Explores Blood Clot Risks with Xarelto
In 2016, the FDA initiated an official investigation to determine whether or not the drug manufacturer managed the clinical trial appropriately. The blood-testing devices used in the trial were the subject of 2014 defective device claims, which could have been the basis for tainted clinical trial results.
In 2012, the FDA received approximately 350 reports of adverse events associated with usage of Xarelto, including 158 cases of blood clots. If you are currently taking Xarelto and are experiencing any unexplained side effects, now is a good time to consult with your physician about next steps.
What’s Behind a Xarelto Lawsuit?
Current lawsuits involving Xarelto allege that Bayer and Johnson & Johnson should be held responsible for:
- Withholding information about the lack of reversal agents
- Failing to give proper warnings about bleeding risks
- Running marketing campaigns that influenced doctors to prescribe this dangerous and even deadly drug despite the existence of an alternative
- Failing to update drug warnings despite many reports of adverse events
If you have recently suffered the dangerous side effects of Xarelto, of if you have lost a loved one due to complications with a bleeding event, you may have grounds for a Xarelto lawsuit. Getting legal advice sooner rather than later is in your best interests.
