What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is an anticoagulant used to prevent stroke in Cardiac patients or after hip surgery to safeguard against severe blood clots. It is often used as an alternative to the medicine warfarin. If a person who is using Xarelto requires unexpected surgery, from a fall for instance, the physician treating the patient may have a far more difficult time stopping serious bleeding, because the patient’s blood is unable to clot. Xarelto can Cause excessive bleeding and a brain hemorrhage.
