What Do the Lawsuits Claim?
Xarelto lawsuits claim that Xarelto users suffered from uncontrolled bleeding and that Xarelto lacks a reversal agent to control bleeding.
One of Xarelto’s most dangerous side effects is internal bleeding, which can be fatal. Some people who have suffered internal bleeding side effects have filed lawsuits against Bayer claiming that the company did not properly warn of the internal bleeding risk.
What is A Reversal Agent?
A reversal agent (antidote, neutralizing drug) is used to reverse possible side effects of blood thinning drugs, including internal or uncontrolled bleeding. Xarelto, unlike other blood thinners that have been used for years, lacks a reversal agent.
