San Antonio Xarelto Lawsuit
Xarelto is a prescription anticoagulant that was approved by the FDA in July 2011 to prevent clotting of the blood. Abnormal blood clotting can have serious consequences if untreated, possibly leading to stroke or even death. By thinning the blood, Xarelto is intended to help patients avoid abnormal clotting in certain situations. Unfortunately many patients have suffered serious side effects. Patients are warned to seek medical help if they experience any of the following symptoms while taking Xarelto:
- Unusual bleeding
- Heavy menstrual periods
- Headache, dizziness, weakness,
- Red or pink urine
- Black or bloody stools
- Coughing up blood
- Vomit that looks like coffee grounds
- Numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness
- Loss of movement in any part of your body
As a result of the drug makers’ failure to warn about the risk of abnormal bleeding after taking Xarelto, financial compensation may be available for former users through a product liability lawsuit. Families of individuals who suffered fatal bleeds may also be entitled to benefits through a wrongful death suit. If you or a family member have taken Xarelto and have experienced serious side effects its important that you seek medical attention immediately.
