What are common Xarelto side effects?

Bayer AG created and marketed Xarelto primarily as a blood thinner. (In the United States, Janssen Pharmaceuticals markets Xarelto.) Unfortunately, this anticoagulant drug is linked to a risk of uncontrolled bleeding, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Many of the serious side effects linked to Xarelto include:

  • Unexpected bleeding
  • Vomiting blood
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Severe bleeding
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Dangerous blood clots
  • Hemorrhage
  • Hematoma
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Intestinal bleeding
  • Brain hemorrhaging

Some of the most common symptoms of a serious bleeding event due to Xarelto exposure include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Red or brown urine
  • Weakness

What You Should Do

Take your symptoms seriously right from the start. If you or a loved one is experiencing any health problems due to Xarelto, we strongly urge you to take the following steps to protect your health and your rights:

  • Contact your doctor immediately - Demand to see your doctor right away. You could have a life-threatening health problem. Don't wait to seek medical treatment. Call your doctor now.
  • Go to the emergency room if necessary - If your doctor is unavailable, go the emergency room if your symptoms are severe. Your health could be at risk. Waiting to be examined by a doctor, EMT or another health care professional could put your life at risk.
  • Document your health problems - Write down exactly what seems wrong with you or your loved one. Keep a journal and take photographs if possible. Also keep a timeline exactly when and what you notice about your health. Evidence builds strong cases.
  • Contact us - Our experienced Xarelto injury attorneys can work with you and make sure your case receives the attention it rightfully deserves.
