Heart Attacks & Strokes
Heart Attacks & strokes happen when a blood vessel that takes blood to your brain gets blocked. Often, it’s by a blood clot that traveled from another part of your body. For example, fatty deposits in arteries can break off, flow to the brain, and cause blood clots. And sometimes clots form in the heart when you have poor blood flow because of an irregular heartbeat, called atrial fibrillation.
Dangerous and potentially life-threatening blood clots have been reported while taking Xarelto. Xarelto is a blood thinner drug that’s actually designed to prevent blood clots. Other issues like uncontrolled internal bleeding have also been reported, but many patients were never informed of the risk. When these blood clots occur, possible strokes and heart attacks also occur, along with internal bleeding.
