Xarelto was recognized to be a top of the line type of blood thinner because of good reviews it has been receiving. However, after some time, a huge number of patients have been experiencing Xarelto’s gravely serious side effects which include severe internal hemorrhage of the gastrointestinal tract, the brain and other vital organs of the body. Not only did it cause severe bleeding, but there were also reports of events of strokes and even deaths.
Lake Forest, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2015 -- There is wide range of anticoagulant medicines that have been used to treat patients with coagulant problems including those with cardiovascular diseases and other life-threatening medical conditions. However, patients who are using these blood thinners have to have their blood monitored and because of this, patients are required to be admitted to the hospital so that if ever adverse effects appear, antidotes could be given promptly to counteract the effects of the drug. And because the dosage depends on the laboratory results, patients have to be closely monitored as well. Moreover, patients who are taking blood thinners have constraints and dietary restrictions; and this makes it more inconvenient for patients.
Because of these reasons, experts are continuously searching for ways to alleviate these problems; hence the discovery of what Johnson and Johnson and Bayer claims to be a "one size fits all" blood thinner. Because of the deceptive promotional campaigns of these manufacturers that the drug is actually safe, very convenient to use and all its very promising claims that Xarelto is the best anticoagulant in the market today, health care professionals and patients have indulged in its use.
Xarelto was recognized to be a top of the line type of blood thinner because of good reviews it has been receiving. However, after some time, a huge number of patients have been experiencing Xarelto's gravely serious side effects which include severe internal hemorrhage of the gastrointestinal tract, the brain and other vital organs of the body. Not only did it cause severe bleeding, but there were also reports of events of strokes and even deaths. And what's worse is that the makers of Xarelto have not released sufficient information with regards to these side effects and the antidote that could reverse its untoward effects.
Due to the numerous incidences and complaints supported by proper medical documentation, lawsuits have been filed against the company that manufactured and marketed the drug. The initial lawsuits were actually commenced last year during the first half of 2014 and continue to increase up to the present. Trials for the Xarelto case are expected to start approximately during the second half of the year 2016.
And because of the tremendous impact of these lawsuits to the companies involved in the manufacture and marketing of Xarelto, there have been settlements that have been reported between the patients and their families; and these issues have been confirmed. This is is predicted to be likely to happen by the general public.
Even with the settlement offers of the company, Xarelto lawsuits continue to increase reaching around 2,000 and is forecasted to increase further in the coming years. About thousands of patients are still expected to surface anytime soon. Litigation has already taken its first big step before even more cases of settlement negotiations are to be made by the company.
The most crucial of all the allegations received by the companies involved in the production and sale of Xarelto is their failure to perform extensive research regarding the bleeding tendencies involved in its use and because there were no information made known, their failure to warn the general public will make their defense weak and the claims of the Xarelto users even more compelling.
