Were You Prescribed Xarelto?
We fight for patients' rights
Xarelto is an oral anticoagulant treatment alternative to warfarin, a long-established safe treatment for preventing stroke and systemic embolism. Soon after its release, however, studies began to link Xarelto (also known as rivaroxaban) to a number of dangerous side effects.

What are serious side effects due to Xarelto?
Xarelto has been linked to a number of dangerous and potentially fatal side effects, including blood clots, brain hemorrhaging, internal bleeding and pulmonary embolisms. Additional side effects can include the following:
- Internal bleeding
- Rectal bleeding
- Vomiting blood
There is no antidote to the side effects of Xarelto. That means, in the event of complications, there is no available reversal agent. The original label for Xarelto did not contain a warning about the lack of an antidote. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration changed the Xarelto label to include a warning in March 2014.
What are symptoms of serious side effects of Xarelto?
Symptoms of dangerous side effects associated with Xarelto cover a wide range. Side effects can include headaches and dizziness, weakness and discolored (red or brown) urine. If you or a loved one taking Xarelto notice anything unusual about your health, we strongly urge you to take the following steps to protect your health and your rights:
- Seek medical attention - Whether you go to your own doctor or an emergency room, have a doctor diagnose you. Don't try to decide on your own if something's wrong with you. Seek professional medical treatment right away.
- Gather evidence - Don't simply rely on doctors to write down everything that's wrong with you. Be your best health-care advocate. Write down important details about your Xarelto-related health problems.
- Keep a medical journal - As part of your evidence gathering, keep a journal and write down any changes in your health you have noticed since you started taking Xarelto. Make sure to write down specific dates and times. Evidence builds strong cases.
