Bleeding from Xarelto
Xarelto’s significant risk of severe, and sometimes fatal, internal bleeding has no antidote to reverse its affects.
The original U.S. label approved when the drug was first marketed did not contain a warning regarding the lack of antidote, and only mentioned this important fact in the overdose section.Xarelto Side Effect Information
Xarelto is Not a Safe Alternative to Warfarin
In 2012, Xarelto’s first full year on the market, a total of 2,081 new Xarelto-associated SAE reports were filed with the FDA. Of those reported events, 151 resulted in death, as compared to only 56 deaths associated with warfarin.
Xarelto’s manufacturers promoted the drug as the next generation of blood-thinning drugs to replace Warfarin (Coumadin), a long-established safe treatment for preventing stroke and systemic embolism. Warfarin has been in use for 60 years.
However, the clinical studies showed that Xarelto had a higher rate of bleeding than Warfarin without substantial improvement in patient outcome.
In addition, Xarelto’s manufacturers insisted the drug does not require regular blood testing that would determine if patients were at risk of severe bleeding, making it more convenient to prescribe.
However, review of the adverse event reports from Xarelto show that the use of Xarelto without appropriate blood monitoring and dose adjustment can cause major, life-threatening bleeding events.
Problems with Xarelto FDA Studies
The approval process for Xarelto has been called into question after reviews of the clinical trial process found systemic errors including:
- discarding of medical records
- unauthorized unblinding
- improprieties in randomization
Half of the clinical trial sites for Xarelto received the most severe rating from the FDA, indicating that the inspection identified objectionable conditions or practices significant enough to warrant regulatory action.
The entire study was deemed unreliable by the FDA, but the problems were never mentioned in the article that lead to the approval of Xarelto.
Xarelto Bleeding Lawsuits
We believe that the manufacturers of Xarelto did not provide adequate warning about the potential for serious bleeding, and did not require blood tests that would help to identify patients at a higher risk for serious bleeding.
