One of the drug litigations I am substantially involved, is a new generation blood thinner – Xarelto.
You have seen the commercials with Arnold Palmer, a race car driver and a professional basketball player touting the benefits of Xarelto. Many of you are aware of the older blood thinners, Coumadin and Warfarin. The manufacturer of Xarelto has engaged in a publicity blitz promoting the lack of medical monitoring required for this new generation blood thinner and the benefits of additional freedoms for its users.
There is a major problem however with Xarelto. People bleed to death while on this drug. I have clients who bumped their head or sustained a minor cut and sometimes just cannot stop the bleeding. Obviously a blood thinner thins the blood so you are more prone to have bleeding episodes. However, what makes Xarelto a particularly “dumb drug” is the fact that it does not have an antidote to stop the bleeding. The older blood thinners such as Coumadin and
Warfarin just require the use of Vitamin K. To make matters worse, the manufacturers of Xarelto advises the public you do not really need any medical monitoring. They put people out there with thin blood with the same dosage for virtually all patients, don’t provide any medical monitoring and don’t have an antidote.
Xarelto has been out for about five years and currently there are almost 9,000 lawsuits pending against the manufacturer. This is an incredible amount of lawsuits as usually people do not file a lawsuit until they are closer to the statute of limitations.
Although there are possible benefits to some new generation blood thinners, until there is an antidote to stop the bleeding “Xarelto” is a “dumb drug”.
