Free Case Consultation
Many people take over-the-counter prescriptions in order to help them live a healthier, and more holistic life. So, what happens when the drug you trust happens to actually not only not work well for you, but actually hurt you? That’s where Robert D. Erney and Associates can step in. One drug in particular that’s a huge cause of concern right now is Xarelto. When looking to possibly distinguish whether or not you or a loved one have been affected by this drug, here are a few questions to help you determine whether or not this should be a cause of concern for you and your family.
Xarelto: What Is it?
Xarelto is a prescription drug that’s given to treat blood clots, and a heart condition known as atrial fibrillation. This drug was meant to compete with another drug known as Coumadin, also used to treat similar issues. Xarelto hoped to do two things differently than Coumadin: not restrict your diet (because Coumadin encourages consumers to not eat salads) and to also rid consumers of having to get several blood tests. Although Xarelto meant well in offering an alternative solution for people who experience these types of issues, it has had the reverse effect, causing internal bleeding for many people.
Basis of a Lawsuit
The basis for this lawsuit lays within the lack of information provided by the manufacturers. The manufacturers failed to not only warn patients of all of the relevant information pertaining to the drug, but they also failed to warn the doctors who would be prescribing the medication. The main component that is causing problems with Xarelto is that it lacks an antidote. Without an antidote, over time, people can experience internal bleeding without realizing it, which can ultimately lead to death. Another fearful aspect that plays into this drug is that because frequent blood testing is not a part of the process, patients can experience blood thinning without it being detected, and thus, internal bleeding could have already begun to occur.
