Xarelto is the brand name for rivaroxaban, one of the most widely utilized blood thinners on the market today. It essentially works by inhibiting the body’s natural coagulation process and is commonly administered to patients who have undergone a major knee or hip replacement surgery.

However, the drug is facing a tremendous amount of scrutiny both in the U.S. and in Canada, as it may lead to a number of serious health conditions. Furthermore, many doctors claim that Xarelto featured insufficient warnings of the risks, and was marketed through the use of misleading studies.

If you or someone you love has suffered a medical complication while using the drug Xarelto, contact our firm immediately to pursue justice.

What Conditions Can Xarelto Cause?

The main issue with Xarelto is that it is actually a highly effective anticoagulant and blood thinner. The drug limits something called “Factor X,” which is an enzyme which is critical to the body’s coagulation process. However, there is no antidote for the effects of Xarelto. This means that the drug naturally increases your chances of internal bleeding by thinning your blood, but if internal bleeding occurs, it cannot be stopped through medication.

Another major issue with Xarelto is its potential to cause liver injury. Although a link has not been firmly established between the two, the Canadian government found enough evidence to order an investigation of the drug. The World Health Organization found more than 430 cases of Xarelto patients suffering liver injury, but only 23 of those were taking Xarelto exclusively.
