Internal bleeding is a risk associated with all blood thinners. They are used to prevent blood clotting. Specifically, they’re used for individuals with Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), those who have had Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or a Pulmonary Embolism, and those undergoing a hip or knee replacement. But what do you do when a thinner causes internal bleeding? Well, not all blood thinners are created equal.

According to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), Xarelto has been associated with “serious, disabling or fatal injury,” including severe internal bleeding, leaving some patients hospitalized and even dead. Unlike older drugs, this one has no known antidote. This means that any bleeding after Xarelto is taken could result in death. This is so concerning to the FDA that it mandated increasingly specific warning labels regarding the lack of a reversal agent.
Elderly patients are at an even higher risk because it takes longer for the drug to leave their system. Studies have linked it to a 200- to 300-percent increase in the rate of major bleeding among various patients. Share this video with your friends and family — especially your parents and grandparents — to raise awareness of the dangers associated with this dangerous drug.
