Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A is currently looking for cases involving:
What is Xarelto ?Xarelto is a prescription medicine used to reduce the risk of strokes and blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation, not caused by a heart valve problem
It is also used to treat deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, and to help reduce the risk of these conditions again.
What are the Risks of Xarelto ?All blood thinners carry a risk of bleeding, BUT Xarelto has been linked to a severe injuries as more patients are transferred over to the new blood thinner.
Xarelto has been touted as a safer alternative to Coumadin, with the drug makers promoting that it is easier to use, since it does not require regular blood tests to measure its effectiveness.
According to several recent studies there are concerns about those claims, with researchers noting that Xarelto blood tests may help doctors identify patients at the greatest risk of bleeding.
Additionally, plaintiffs blame the drug makers for withholding critical information about the lack of a Xarelto reversal agent, which doctors could use to stop hemorrhaging.
Coumadin’s blood thinning effects can be quickly reversed in an emergency, there is no similar antidote for Xarelto.
