XARELTO MEDICATION & ITS DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS
People prescribed Xarelto have experienced a variety of side effects, ranging from slight to severe, since it was first introduced to the market. In response to the growing concerns surrounding the drug, doctors and pharmacists across the country have since stopped given it to patients, fearing that it may be more detrimental than beneficial. It would appear that rivaroxaban, the primary drug in Xarelto, requires additional testing but it is not certain if Bayer will conduct any themselves, or if that task will fall onto third parties like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
More common side effects of Xarelto include:
- Dizziness, nausea, and vomiting
- Complete liver failure
- Pain in joints
- Severe hemorrhaging (abdominal)
- Muscle cramps
- Skin abnormalities (blistering and welts)
Severe yet slightly less common side effects may include:
- Internal cranial bleeding
- Shortness of breath
Research indicates that experiencing just one side effort for a brief period could indicate that more severe complications are unseen, or in the near future. If you have suffered from one of the aforementioned ailments, you should contact your physician immediately to get their professional medical opinion and whether or not you should stop using Xarelto.

Hernandez Jr., we can determine if a mass tort is the proper means to pursue compensation, or if you need to create an individual lawsuit.
