Some of the serious side effects people in California have suffered as a result of taking Xareleto include:

  • pulmonary embolism
  • deep vein thrombosis
  • gastrointestinal hemorrhage and hemorrhage
  • brain hemorrhaging
  • cerebrovascular incidents
  • hematoma
  • edema
  • dyspnea
  • hemoglobin
  • death

The most reported side effects reported are pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition which causes the blood clots to break loose, they can travel throughout your blood to other small veins and become stuck inside the lungs (known as pulmonary embolism), heart, or other areas throughout the body. Serious damage to the organ can occur when the blood flow is blocked, even death.

Xarelto and the FDA

In 2013, the FDA reported that there have been several studies analyzing the adverse events when using Xarelto. The drug has recently been linked to cause serious side effects such as uncontrollable bleeding due to the prevention of blood not being able to clot if an injury were to occur. This 2013 report stated there had been over 2,100 adverse event reports in which a patient was taking Xarelto. Over 1,800 of these cases had named Xarelto to be the primary cause.

As of 2014, California is home to over 38.8 million people, and with over 4 million prescriptions being issued for Xarelto a year, the number of deadly bleeding events caused by Xarelto continues to increase as the drug continues to be prescribed. The total outpatient prescriptions for Xarelto jumped to close to 1 million prescriptions per quarter in 2012.
