Xarelto Health Risks

Xarelto is one of the newest blood thinners on the market. The anticoagulant drug is prescribed to patients who have experienced atrial fibulation, are at risk of developing severe blood clots after hip or knee replacement surgery and or to reduce the risk of strokes, pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. Xarelto is popular because it does not require patients to undergo blood tests to determine the dose and it does not require patients to go in for a routine check-up with their physician. Recently, the health hazards related to Xarelto are alarming; the drug can be fatal by causing abdominal bleeding, hemorrhaging and bleeding in the brain. While most blood thinners on the market have a cure to stop internal bleeding, Xarelto does not. Currently, there is no antidote to stop or reverse the bleeding caused by Xarelto.  Xarelto is designed to stop blood from clotting. There are 13 specific proteins in the blood will start the clotting process. Xarelto is intended to block the protein which prevents the blood clots from forming. This process can be very dangerous if an injury occurs, especially in older adults, because of the possibility of uncontrolled bleeding. Many patients who suffer from severe internal bleeding end up in the hospital, but doctors have no way to reverse the bleeding, which sometimes tragically results in death.
