Xarelto Side Effects & Complications

Potential side effects caused by Xarelto (rivaroxaban):

  • Hemorrhaging
  • Bleeding in the brain
  • Intestinal or abdominal bleed
  • Bleeding from the rectum

According to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices rivaroxaban adverse events reported during 2014 were notable in one expected area: an excess of embolic-thrombotic events.  It also had the largest number and percentage of blood clot-related events. The short half-life of once-a-day dosing also results in higher maximum drug concentrations during drug peaks, and thus, increases the risk of bleeding.

Filing a Lawsuit
