Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a new generation blood thinner that was approved
by the FDA on July 1, 2011. Xarelto has been approved to prevent deep
vein thrombosis after knee replacement surgery and hip replacement surgery
and to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with
non-valvular atrial fibrillation. The most dangerous side effect for people
taking Xarelto is uncontrollable bleeding. The manufacturers of Xarelto
claim that blood tests are not needed for patients taking this drug. Because
Xarelto’s ability to thin blood varies widely between patients,
the lack of a simple blood-test prevents patients and physicians from
knowing whether Xarelto causes a patient’s blood to become too thin
leading to uncontrolled bleeding events.
