Have you seen the ad where Kevin Nealon says he prefers Xarelto (rivaroxaban) over warfarin because it allows him to eat a healthy salad if he wants to? His statement makes it sound like Xarelto is a healthier choice, but the reason why you can eat leafy greens while taking Xarelto is the very thing that makes it such a dangerous medication. Vitamin K is the antidote for warfarin, but it does not reverse Xarelto. In fact, there is no antidote for Xarelto, so if you start bleeding it can be impossible to stop the bleeding in time to save your life, and you can bleed out and die from even a minor wound or from spontaneous internal bleeding.
Xarelto Defective Drug Lawsuits
More than 2,500 Xarelto lawsuits have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL). If you believe that you have been harmed by Xarelto or that your loved one died from a Xarelto bleeding event, you should speak with an experienced defective drug attorney right away, while you still have time to file your claim.
Xarelto victims in the MDL are alleging that Xarelto causes bleeding events and that the companies that make Xarelto were negligent because they put an anticlotting drug on the market without an antidote to reverse its action if bleeding occurs.
Xarelto has been on the market for over four years, and there is still no reversal agent for the drug. It is, along with other newer blood thinners, an ER doctor’s nightmare.
If you have been harmed by Xarelto or any defective drug, please talk to an experienced defective drug attorney right away to learn more about your rights.
