Xarelto and Pradaxa Cause Internal Bleeding

Posted on - Sunday, July 27, 2014 under Dangerous Drugs & Products Xarelto and Pradaxa Cause Internal Bleeding

Billion Dollar Blood Thinners Xarelto & Pradaxa
New age blood thinners are the hottest product on the prescription drug market. Drug makers are making serious bankroll off selling these name-brand products. In fact, they are making to the tune of $3 billion per year!!

Xarelto and Pradaxa Prescribed for Multiple Conditions
Xarelto and Pradaxa, along with other blood thinners, are given to patients suffering from things such as:

  • Irregular Heartbeat (also known as atrial fibrillation or A-Fib);
  • Common after knee replacement surgery and/or hip replacement surgery;
  • Blood Clot Treatment such as Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT and Pulmonary Embolism to rid the body of the blood clot; and
  • Maintenance for Prior Blood Clots – Hopefully, the drug stops another blood clot from forming.
  • Xarelto and Pradaxa Are DIFFERENT Than Coumadin

Other than over-the-counter aspirin, Coumadin (or warfarin) was the common blood thinner prescribed by millions of doctors. As you can imagine, the risk of bleeding increases when your blood is thinned. According to a close friend that is an emergency room doctor, when a patient arrived at his emergency room bleeding internally while on Coumadin, he would inject Vitamin K and frozen plasma into the patient to control the bleed.

There is no such luck with Xarelto and Pradaxa. According to one doctor interviewed by The Town Talk newspaper of Alexandria, Louisiana, “there have been no comparative trials among the newer anticoagulant medications, including Pradaxa (dabigatran), Xarelto (rivaroxaban) and Eliquis (apixiban). All of them have similar or slightly less bleeding risk than the older drug Coumadin (warfarin). On the other hand, if there is a serious bleed on one of these, there is no way to stop it. This is opposed to warfarin, which has a treatment in the case of excess bleeding” said Dr. Roach.
