Did you suffer rectal bleeding after taking the blood thinner medication Xarelto? There is no known antidote for the uncontrolled bleeding that can occur as a result of Xarelto and this has left many individuals hospitalized in very serious condition, some even dying as a result of the uncontrolled hemorrhaging.
There are many potential causes of rectal and gastrointestinal bleeding, ranging from ulcers to hemorrhoids and even irritation stemming from chronic gastrointestinal ailments like Crohn’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Xarelto, manufactured by Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a division of Johnson & Johnson, is prescribed as an alternative to blood thinners such as warfarin, also known as coumadin. Unlike warfarin, which requires very close monitoring to ensure the levels of the drug remain at a therapeutic level, Xarelto works in a different manner. Xarelto was attractive to many as it does not require the close monitoring that warfarin necessitates.
Xarelto is typically used to thin the blood in a manner that prevents blood clots arising as a result of deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, in addition to preventing conditions that can result in a deadly stroke.
But many individuals who took Xarelto were not properly cautioned about the serious and life-threatening risk of uncontrolled bleeding. What’s more, some have suggested it was irresponsible for Xarelto’s manufacturers to release a drug that lacks an antidote. Thousands of individuals suffered uncontrolled, and in some cases, irreversible rectal bleeding due to Xarelto.
Rectal bleeding is serious enough, but if this part of the body refuses to stop bleeding, it can lead to hemorrhaging that can be life threatening. Xarelto is notorious for inducing this and our experts will not give up until you get the emotional and physical recompense you are entitled to.
