Xarelto, a relatively new blood thinner, has been linked to serious and sometimes deadly incidents of uncontrollable bleeding and was sold for years without an antidote to stop its blood thinning effects.

STATUS OF XARELTO BLEEDING LAWSUITS: Product liability lawyers are reviewing whether former users who have experienced hemorrhages, gastrointestinal bleeding, strokes or wrongful death may be entitled to financial compensation through Xarelto lawsuits. The manufacturers agreed to a $775 million settlement agreement to resolve about 25,000 cases in March 2019.

Cases are being pursued for individuals throughout the United States who have suffered:

  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Strokes
  • Wrongful Death


MANUFACTURERS: Johnson & Johnson and Bayer Healthcare.

OVERVIEW: Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is one of a new class of anticoagulants used to reduce the risk of blood clots and strokes, particularly among patients with atrial fibrillation or following hip or knee replacement surgery. It was developed and is distributed jointly by Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals subsidiary and Bayer Healthcare.

Known as a “direct thrombin inhibitor,” Xarelto was designed to compete with Boehringer Ingelheim’s Pradaxa. Both drugs were released in an effort to replace the blood thinner warfarin, also known as Coumadin, which has dominated the atrial fibrillation blood thinner market for several decades.

The FDA first approved Xarelto in July 2011, to reduce the risk of blood clots, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism following knee and hip surgery. In November 2011, it was approved as an anti-coagulant for individuals with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. In November 2012, approval was expanded to include patients with DVT and pulmonary embolism, as well as a long-term treatment to prevent recurrence.

Unlike warfarin, which has been the go-to anticoagulant treatment for decades, there was no approved reversal agent for Xarelto at the time it was introduced. As a result, doctors were left unable to control bleeding problems on Xarelto.

Since it was introduced, hundreds of adverse event reports have been submitted suggesting a link between Xarelto and bleeding injuries or death. According to allegations raised in lawsuits, the drug makers failed to adequately warn about the bleeding risk or lack of an effective Xarelto reversal agent.

A reversal agent for Xarelto was finally approved by the FDA in May 2018.

In late 2017, a Pennsylvania jury awarded a plaintiff nearly $28 million in what was considered a bellwether Xarelto trial. However, the verdict was overturned in January 2018 by a state judge who said there was insufficient evidence for the jury to have reached that verdict.

In March 2019, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson announced a settlement agreement to resolve about 25,000 bleeding injury lawsuits for an estimated $775 million.

XARELTO BLEEDING SIDE EFFECTS: Xarelto was promoted as superior to warfarin because it is easier to take and require less frequent monitoring to maintain the correct dosage.

While all anticoagulants carry a risk of bleeding, the blood thinning effects of warfarin can be reversed with a combination of vitamin K and plasma. When it was first approved, Xarelto had no such reversal agent, making it difficult for doctors to stop bleeding events before serious injury or death occur.

Some doctors have had partial success with prothrombin complex concentrates (PCCs), but the FDA has not approved an official reversal agent or strategy to stop life-threatening bleeding events. In September 2016, the FDA rejected a potential reversal agent for Xarelto and Eliquis, saying that it needed more information and data before it could grant approval. The agency finally approved the reversal agent, Andexxa, in May 2018, but then only for limited release.

In September 2013, the German newspaper Der Speigel reported that there had been nearly 1,000 adverse events involving Xarelto during the first eight months of 2013 alone, including 72 deaths.

In May 2014, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) reported that doctors and patients were reporting adverse events linked to the use of Xarelto in increasing numbers. ISMP reported in QuarterWatch that there were 680 Xarelto adverse events reported in the U.S. in 2013.

The number of reports linked to Xarelto surpassed those linked to Pradaxa, which had once held the dubious distinction of being the drug with the most adverse event reports.

Furthermore, some evidence suggests that blood monitoring, which the manufacturers said was not needed, could actually reduce the risk of Xarelto bleeding injuries.

A study published in October 2014 published in the Journal of Cardiology found that monitoring levels of Xarelto in the blood of patients with atrial fibrillation helped doctors determine when the drug was at peak levels and how to better control it and prevent bleeding events, similar to warfarin.

In June 2016, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices reported that Xarelto was linked to more serious injuries than any other drug monitored. The blood thinner accounted for 10,674 reports of fatal, disabling, and serious injury in 2015, according to the report.

A study published in January 2017 found that Xarelto had the “least favorable” safety profile of any of the new-generation anticoagulants, due to its rates of gastrointestinal bleeding.

A report published in July 2017 by the Institute of Safe Medication Practices linked Xarelto and similar blood thinners to at least 3,000 reports of patient deaths submitted to the FDA in 2016.

As of February 2017, there were more than 15,000 Xarelto lawsuits consolidated before U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in the Eastern District of Louisiana, and another 1,000 consolidated in state courts in Philadelphia.

FIND OUT IF YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR A XARELTO LAWSUIT: As a result of the drug makers’ failure to adequately warn about the risks associated with their medication, Xarelto injury lawyers are evaluating whether users may be entitled to compensation through a product liability lawsuit.

Cases allege that Johnson & Johnson and Bayer withheld important safety information about the bleeding risk and the lack of an effective reversal agent. In addition, claims indicate that risk of injury outweighs any potential benefit provided by Xarelto, making the drug unreasonably dangerous and defective as it was originally formulated.

To request a free consultation and claim evaluation to determine whether you, a friend or family member may be entitled to financial compensation through a lawsuit, submit information for review by an Xarelto injury lawyer.

    I went for a ablation surgery on june26th at Saint Barnabis Hospital in Livingston NJ,The probes were inserted to Map out the Electrical Part of the Heart to correct Afib.I had awaken from sedation and feeling if Elephants sitting on my Chest,I was given Morpnine for the pain.Not knowing what happening during the start of the surgery, The Doctor came in and informed me they had to insert a Pigtail,A drain that would drain blood that enter my Heart cavity,I believe 100CC was drained from my Chest and was told my pressure drop down to 50.The Doctor said to me, he blamed himself and the blood thinner for this filling up of blood in my heart cavity,I had taken Xarelto prior to the surgery,I called the Young lady who set up the surgery date and ask her if I should stop the Xarelto before the surgery and she ask the doctor and he said stay on it,I was asking because the doctor told to even watch when I shave that I don’t cut myself,Because of the blood thinner,So I thought going into surgery maybe I shouldn’t be taking a blood thinner in case of bleeding during surgery,So I stayed on it.I was told they couldn’t go on to map out the heart for the afib surgery,The doctor wants me to do the surgery in 2 months ,He wanted to give my heart to heal for 2 months,I was also told that blood thinner was givin while I was on the operating table,What kind of Blood thinner I couldn’t tell you.I never really had a fear of surgery,After this,I don’t know if I can do this afib surgery ever for emontional and physically reason,My health has been the same since them,Shortness of breath and tireness.Because of this,I was lucky that the doctors assistant acted quickly to insert the drain.My interest commented,That you can’t get any closer to death than that.The Surgeon ,I think regrets using XARELTO,He said he was beating himself over this,I just feel beat up!

    I have been taking this medication for over a year . I sit down to eat or feel something strange on my leg and find I am bleeding all over and I have no idea how or why . I keep my fingernails filed low as they grow very fast and I have cut myself scratching and then again I am bleeding all over the place . One night I took a shower and looked down and all I saw was blood . I had somehow hit a blood vessel with a fingernail on my scrotum . I called my partner for help It took half a towel soaked in blood I used up three or more septic pencils and that hurt like hell . My doctor told me I had to be very careful when bathing and pay attention or it could happen again . All these drugs and drug reps are making fortunes on peoples illness and think that it’s ok to continue . between drugs and s.s.i. I get 12 k a year because a doctor never picked up on a problem that could have stopped all this madness but by the time I found out it was to late to file suit . You just can’t win

    I have been taking xarelto for about a year. Large areas of my feet are filling with blood,and my doctor gives me no explanation. I am currently taking 7 1/2 mg per day.

    This medication is nothing more than the Federal Government and the mighty Pharmacuetical companies to kill seniors. It toook the FDA to allow it to the market. It just struck my 82 year old mother. Now I have basically a vegetable to contend with. Your Doctor is not always right. Question everything. Warfain was the astandard for years until Obmacare. Now Medicare and insurance did not want to pay for PT/INR clinics. Don’t let “Modern Medicine” committ GENOCIDE on those who fought and died for America and now are being tossed into the trash!

    While I am sorry that anyone has a side effect to any medication, it is not the fault of the government or the Affordable Care Act! I am currently taking this drug for a Pulmonary Embolism caused by taking a prescription cough syrup that caused Phlebitis to occur in my right calf. The blood clot broke free from that and traveled to my lung causing the PE. It was a painful and scary time and I am now taking Xarelto as I didn’t want to stay in the hospital and continue being poked for continual blood tests, which are required while on Warfarin and others. I have had no side effects and have common sense to know that I need to be careful as I am on a BLOOD THINNER! I understand that there have been some serious issues/side effects from this medication but people not taking proper precautions and cutting themselves, while I understand that this can be inadvertently, proper caution should be exercised. Lawsuits filed for lack of common sense is why medical care and prescriptions are skyrocketing!

    My mother was on Coumadin for years, I used to take her to the clinic
    to be checked. At least we knew where she was even though it involved the extra step. Then along comes Xarelto, the new silver bullet.
    The FDA does not use prior standards to ensure drug safety like the department once did. Could there be indiscretion with the FDA and Bayer? From the start, my mother experienced all of the side effects listed above. It was very frustrating with this poison to see her try and manage the side effects along with other health issues. Each week we methodically put her daily medicines in the proper order.
    Then the night of her stroke I saw the fear in her eye’s and the look on her face when the ER Neurologist said She would have been safe if on Coumadin but the chances of her having any chance of recovery where none existent. Bayer has made more money off of this poison than nearly any other drug. The FDA did no follow up for monitoring and countless serious injuries have been a direct result.
    I was told perhaps there could be minimal recovery but within 100 days she would be on palliative care. His prediction was ten days off,
    The worst day of my life was the 90th day post stroke.She was dying and in intensive care. I had to be the one to make the decision to stop life support. I feel horrible that I had to end her life but she suffered and it was inevitable. Funny how one of the big personality promoters is now dead. Drug commercials should not be allowed to be advertised. Western medicines are all poison, The FDA under the Obama administration cut their standards. It did not matter that we were extremely careful in EVERYTHING,
    It;s so wonder that Aaron who sounds like a Bayer employee making a false statement is so concerned about protecting this product.
    You didn’t lose a loved one, I doubt that you even understand the emotions since you are so self assured. I guess being perfect and promoting a chemical of death is no concern to you. I don’t care what any proponent of this trash medicine is. My family lived it and will not forget what Bayer did.

    Following routine right hip replacment surgery late Sept. 2012, I was prescribed and began to take xarelto before leaving the hospital. Before I was released from the hospital, I clearly remember
    being asked if I would prefer to take a pill or have daily shots in my stomach to protect from blood clots. Who wants shots in the their stomach, so I opted for the pill. There was no warning or discussion regarding the possibility of severe bleeding or that there was no antidote to reverse the effects of the medication.

    The following morning I woke with what appeared to be severe bruising on my back, butt and right leg. Later I learned that the bruising was pooled blood. Fortunately, my follow up nurse came to my home for routine blood work and immediately knew something was wrong. She expidited my lab work and contacted my doctor and told me not to take anymore Xarelto. Shortly thereafter I received a call from my doctor with instructions to immediately go back to the hospital and that he would notify emergency that I am coming.

    My blood work that morning indicated that my hemoglobin was at 7.8, my normal results were usually well above 15. I was admitted to the hospital and given two units of blood. I spent the better part of the next 3 days in the hospital with the worst headache ever and drenching sweats requiring constant gown and bedding changes. The good news, I have since recovered and consider myself extremely lucky after reviewing the many other victims with serious bleed events.

    It seems that Aaron has planted a story about snakeskin Xarelto. I don’t believe a word you say or write. In Las Veas the used to be called schills. They suckedred players onto high dollar machines that appeared to pay off. In reality the casinos paid them Your “story” STINKS, is fabricated and you and your buddies at Bayer who are killers. How much did they PAY DOCTORS who are just as guilty. Does Bayer CEO have that trash bath tub gin prescribed for it’s family? Hell No. Anyone who touts the benefits of this dung is a liar.
    KILLERS, KILLERS. THE FDA IS GETTING SOMETHING OUT OF IT. Lawsuit mention is funny, why would you bring it up Aaron? Hmm sounds like nothing but forked tongue. The truth will come out and you will pay for your fabricared lies, you are a criminal imposter, watch out, the Kharma bus is in your sights!

    My dad was prescribed Xarelto following liver transplant surgery. Several weeks following his release from the hospital I noticed that he was becoming progressively weaker/mentally confused. He told me that according to his doctors, all the follow up tests indicated that all was as it should be. He said that it was normal to experience such weakness after a major surgical procedure. Eventually I managed to bring him to the hospital, and it turned out that his symptoms were the result of some sort of vascular trauma – a ‘subdural hematoma’ under his skull to be precise. A broken blood vessel in his head was causing swelling under his skull, and the resulting pressure on his brain was causing his entire body to malfunction. As my dad had not experienced any sort of head trauma, I asked the doctor what might have caused such a thing. He said that it was likely the result of the blood thinning medication my dad was taking, as this sort of bleeding seemed to be a relatively common side-effect and that ‘things like this just happen sometimes’. He also said that my dad was ‘lucky’ I managed to bring him in, as he probably would not have lasted another 24 hours otherwise.

    Had a bleeding incident with Xarelto in 2016. As a result I was advised to no longer take blood thinners. This puts me at risk since I have a clotting problem.

    If you are taking xarelto, you might as well put a gun to your head and play Russian roulette. I was put on this drug and told I would have to take it the rest of my life. After 2 weeks on this drug I had symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. After 4 weeks on this drug I could not walk or stand straight without tremendous pain in my joints and muscles. I went to the hematologist and told him this drug was making me feel lousy. He said this drug in no way caused those symptoms. He said I was just getting older. WHAT! I suffered tremendously while on this drug. Within a couple of more months I had a minor stroke. All the while the hematologist refuted xarelto had that side effect. I read on the internet about this drug and most side effects were considered rare. I was a totally change person. I could not move without pain and the constant pain meant I was not sleeping or eating very much. I thought I’d rather be dead than live this way. Finally, after weeks of searching websites I found one that was a blog for people on xarelto who were suffering with rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and were immobilized with pain. There were hundreds of people who were told the same thing by their doctor as I was……”this drug does not cause that side effect”. I wrote on the blog and said I was getting off this xarelto and just take a baby aspirin. Within one week my pain was 50% gone and within 2 weeks the pain in my joints and muscles were 100% gone. That was 2 years ago. I have been on a baby aspirin and doing well. The doctor said he wouldn’t keep me as a patient unless I took the xarelto. I told him ” I predict this drug will be pulled from the market in a few years”. Well, they haven’t pulled it off, but there are so many lawsuits against them I think they will be forced to take it off. Not enough people have died yet to pull it! Sad commentary. These doctors are in bed with these drugs companies. So now we have the MEDICAL MAFIA AND THE PHARMACEUTICAL MAFIA TO DEAL WITH……..take responsibility for your own treatment choices. Research all you can. Don’t be sheepeople. Trust your instincts about what your body and intuition are telling you. Get help from friends if you can’t do the Reseach yourself. AND DON’T BE AFRAID TO TELL THE DOCTOR “NO”. IF HE DOESN’T WANT TO BE YOUR DOCTOR ANYMORE THEM TELL HIM TO KISS YOUR ASS AND WALK OUT THE OFFICE. HE IS NOT DESERVING OF YOUR RESPECT OR BUSINESS.

    I Started taking Xeralto in 2013 for a dvt behind my knee & I have a very high d-dimer which makes me predestined for blood clots. According to my Dr. It is
    In my genetics. Since I started taking Xeralto I have had a blood transfusion & I am having yet another 1000 ml iron infusion due to anemia. They had to increase the dosage from 500 ml to 1000 because it wasn’t lasting very long. This is going to be an on going issue so I can expect to spend thousands in medical expenses.

    My mother had to have a small hole repaired in her heart. Before hand her doctor prescribed Xarelto. We were told this was a none life threatening procedure. The procedure did not go well and resulted in internal bleeding. After she went home, she was told she needed to continue Xarelto. Within hours she was back in the hospital. Within less than two weeks my mother was dead due to internal gastro-intestinal tearing and bleeding resulting in sepsis.
    I agree this drug is meant to kill seniors. I am shocked and finding it hard to believe the judges are going against lawsuit victims. What a pathetic joke. If my mother had never taken Xarelto I believe she would still be alive today.

    For anyone that doubts that Xarelto is not dangerous has not watched a family member disappear from a human to a zombified victim of the muderous crap xarelto. The ER doctors predicted almost to the day when my mom would die abd how mad they were that they could do nothing. J & J doesn’t give a damn about patients. Money, money, money is all the J & J Nazis care about. Obviously money has been paid because a lot of things don’t make sense. Two tiered Justice is certainly alive. I just want 5 minutes with J & Js CEO for purely discussion purposes. Killers, murderers and thieves and we are letting them get away with it. Keep your fingers in the Xarelto dyke boys. It’s going to bust wide open!!!!!

    Healthy and fit 52 year old… DVT discovered in my right lower leg after ankle and calf swelling after jogging. They predcribed Xarelto… For awhile it just made me feel awkward and fuzzy and I definitely could not drink alcohol because it would intensify that fuzzy feeling. I scraped my shin shortly after beginning Xarelto and it failed to heal quickly and It became infected.
    I began to experience itchy forearms after about 6 months and then at about 8 months it intensified into intense shoulder, bicep, forearm and hand pain. I have had two blood vessels in my eyes burst since I started taking it as well.
    I had a flare up of OA in the last joint in my fingers near my finger nails and in my thumb/ hand joint. I have never had any signs of arthritis, gout in my hands prior to taking Xarelto. I discontinued it 10 days ago and the extreme pain in my shoulders has dissipated… yet I still have some lingering forearm itching and tingling and heavy feeling hands and finger joint pain in my middle finger… similar to carpal tunnel at this point. I hope as time continues that my nerves and joints return to normal. I just wonder and strongly feel as if it exacerbates existing conditions that were low level or undetected prior to taking Xarelto. In addition, since I used to take Motrin for other aches and pains from exercising, etc… did the Motrin mask these other conditions for years and then since I couldn’t take it with the Xarelto they revealed.
    Don’t really know… but seeing what others are posting here and online…it seems as though the side effects are greater than the studies revealed or reported by J&J

    Hello, I am a 23 year old female who recently found out I have DVT in my left calf leading up to pulmonary embolism in left side. The doctors where very surprised to have to prescribe blood thinners to somebody my age but continued to prescribe me Xarelto for the next 3 months 2 times daily, starting at a higher dose for the first 3 weeks then will go down as I go. After doing research on the drug and coming across this page I am extremely scared starting this medication. It seems as tho I’m reading all bad and I’m worried my life is more at stake by taking this medication. Is there anybody who has taken it short term and not been at extreme risk for bleeding and stroke ????? This is supposed to help dissolve my clots and instead I’m scared it will kill me….. Any info helps please I just want to be fully informed as I start this
