Did your doctor prescribe Xarelto, when you were recovering from a knee or hip replacement surgery? Did you start taking the drug because you are at a greater risk of a stroke resulting from atrial fibrillation? Are you on this medicine because you suffer from deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism?

Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a newer anticoagulant, which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved after a fast-track review in 2011. Blood thinners are intended to prevent serious life-threatening conditions including:

  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Venous thromboembolism

However, a short time after patients started taking Xarelto, serious side effects were reported.

Xarelto Side Effects

Xarelto can cause several types of internal and external bleeding in the brain, intestines, rectum and stomach. Some patients taking this medication may not initially notice the Xarelto side effects. These may include:

  • Hemorrhagic stroke
  • Liver damage
  • Reduced platelet levels
  • Severe anemia requiring transfusion

Potentially life-threatening side effects of the drug are:

  • Excessive and uncontrollable bleeding
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

Some people also experience other health complications including an infection related to a hip or knee replacement surgery, decreased hemoglobin, hematoma, peripheral edema and or difficulty breathing. Other patients may be acutely aware of problems ranging from dry, itchy skin and hair loss to severe pain.
