Posted on - Wednesday, June 24, 2015 under Dangerous Drugs & Products

More Scientific Ammunition for Xarelto® Lawsuits

More than 4 million people were prescribed Xarelto® (also known as rivarobaxin) in 2014.  Xarelto® is a prescription blood thinner marketed as superior to the historically prescribed Coumadin® (also known as warfarin).

Xarelto®, the most successful of the new line of blood thinners (or anti-coagulants) hit the US market in 2011 to treat hip and knee implant patients.  It has since been approved for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.

Xarelto® Doubles Risk of GI Bleeds?

A study was recently published by the British Medical Journal suggesting that Xarelto® may double the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding in patients.

More than 40,000 Americans were part of this study into Xarelto®.

The purpose of the study was to determine if there was a measurable difference in occurrences of gastrointestinal bleeding for patients on Xarelto® vs. Coumadin®.

After reviewing the measurable data obtained, the doctors concluded that it cannot be ruled out there is “a more than twofold higher risk of bleeding with Xarelto® compared with Coumadin®.”

Xarelto® Lawsuit Filings on Rise
