All blood thinners carry a risk of internal bleeding. However, Xarelto appears to have a much greater risk than the manufacturers, Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Health Care, indicated in warnings provided to both consumers and medical professionals. In many cases, Xarelto bleeding problems cannot be controlled by doctors, due to the lack of an approved reversal agent. Physicians are able to reverse the effects of Warfarin and other blood thinners quickly if bleeding occurs, but Xarelto bleeding is often uncontrollable, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.
The use of Xarelto can result in complications like the following:
- Rectal Bleeding
- Intestinal bleeding
- Brain Hemorrhaging
- Death caused by uncontrolled bleeding
