Blood thinner Xarelto dangers discussed by Beasley Allen attorney David Byrne

Today on the Beasley Allen Report, host Gibson Vance interviews fellow Beasley Allen attorney David Byrne on the dangers of the prescription drug Xarelto. Introduced in 2011, Xarelto is prescribed as a blood thinner to prevent blood clots and strokes. After only one year on the market, Xarelto became the 10th most reported drug to the FDA in the United States for adverse effects, and these numbers are only rising. Patients have suffered from irreversible internal bleeding that can lead to hospitalization and death. David Byrne has practiced law at Beasley Allen for more than 13 years, working first on environmental cases and now mass torts. Gibson asks Byrne about the science behind the drug and how Xarelto differs from the similar drug Coumadin. Byrne explains the lack of regulations on Xarelto and how the manufacturers market the drug in order to make it appear simpler than its competitors. Byrne recommends talking to your doctor if you are already taking Xarelto in order to have an honest discussion about concerns and alternative options.

If you have already been injured by Xarelto, he advises contacting an attorney to look into your legal rights. For more information, visit Beasley Allen online at www.BeasleyAllen.com.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
