Raleigh Xarelto Lawyer
Xarelto, a blood thinner sold by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceutical, is a drug that has caused significant internal bleeding and death for a number of patients. Under the law, pharmaceutical companies have an obligation to ensure that the products they produce are safe to use.

Negative Side Effects Associated with Xarelto
Xarelto is intended to reduce risk of stroke and blood clot development in patients who experience atrial fibrillation or individuals who have surgery for a hip or knee replacement. Those who take certain medications, including aspirin medicines and anti-inflammatory drugs that are not steroids, may carry an increased risk of experiencing Xarelto bleeding. Xarelto carries a number of side effects, including but not limited to:
- Unexpected bleeding
- Increased risk of bruising
- Urine and stool discoloration
- Coughing up or vomiting of blood
- Feelings of dizziness
- Pain in wound locations
These and many other severe, even fatal side effects are the result of a drug that was meant to treat atrial fibrillation, and to prevent pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in the lungs), or blood clots anywhere else in the body, particularly to stave off a stroke. According to a Xarelto lawsuit that has already been filed, Johnson & Johnson and subsidiary companies failed to properly warn the public of how seriously the medication could harm someone.
The devastating side effects of the prescription blood thinner Xarelto can sometimes be incurable, in some cases deadly, and no compensation can make up for that. But anyone who has been harmed by or lost a loved one because of Xarelto is likely entitled to fair compensation by going after the reportedly negligent company that produced this dangerous medication.
