One of Xarelto’s most dangerous side effects is internal bleeding, which can be fatal. 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.
Doctors prescribe patients Xarelto (Rivaroxaban), a blood thinner, to reduce the risk of blood clots that may cause strokes. Xarelto does not require blood tests to determine the correct dosage amount, as opposed to warfarin, one of the oldest blood thinners available.
The risk of bleeding exists with all blood thinners, but Xarelto is more dangerous because it does not have an antidote.
