The Rottenstein Law Group LLP Notes Anticoagulant Drug Xarelto® Surpasses Pradaxa in the Number of Reported Injuries

Rockville Centre, NY - June 24th, 2014 - The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a national personal injury law firm with over 25 years of experience, notes an increase in the number of adverse event reports involving the anticoagulant drug Xarelto® over other similarly prescribed drugs.

In 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received almost 700 adverse event reports submitted by individuals who claimed to have a serious adverse side effect while taking Xarelto® (rivaroxaban), as compared to 528 for Pradaxa (dabigatran).  Data shows that the number of individuals being prescribed these drugs is estimated at about 4 million for the year, with Xarelto® prescriptions outnumbering Pradaxa prescriptions by two-to-one. Anticoagulants, or “blood thinners” are considered high-risk prescription drugs because they can cause excessive internal bleeding and other health risks in some patients.

“We are concerned about the increasing number of adverse events associated with Xarelto®,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “We want consumers to understand that they have rights when it comes to the healthcare products they use, particularly prescription drugs that could cause life-threatening injuries.”

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages anyone who believes they, or a loved one have been injured by Xarelto® to visit the firm’s new website, for valuable information about the drug’s dangers. Users are invited to request a no-cost case evaluation by filling out the confidential form found on the site’s home page.
