What is Xarelto?
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) was first approved by the FDA in July of 2011. The blood thinner has three main uses:
- Reducing the risk of blood clots and stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation,
- Treating deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms, and
- Reducing the risk of blood clots in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery.
To treat a clotting disorder (which can lead to strokes or embolisms), a medication like Xarelto may be prescribed which will keep the blood from clotting. As a result of the action of this drugs, patients must be very careful to avoid injury, as the blood can no longer clot naturally.
Older blood thinners like warfarin (Coumadin) have been around for over 50 years. Warfarin has an antidote, and its blood thinning effects can be reversed with a shot of Vitamin K.
Unlike warfarin, Xarelto does not have an antidote. If a patient taking Xarelto is injured or needs surgery, there is no shot which will reverse its effects and allow the body to resume clotting normally. Patients who begin hemorrhaging while taking Xarelto may not be able to stop, leading to massive blood loss and possibly death.
