Has Xarelto® Caused a Serious or Fatal Bleeding Event in Your Life?

The prescription Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) has caused bleeding and death in some patients. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a serious “boxed warning” in 2014 warning of potential serious side effects from taking Xarelto.

Use of Xarelto® blood thinner has been linked to:

  • Uncontrollable Internal Bleeding
  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding
  • Brain Hemorrhage
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke
  • Death

If you are taking Xarelto and have uncontrollable bleeding or any other issues or concerns, call your doctor immediately. Then contact a lawyer.
