Xarelto & Pradaxa


Anticoagulant drugs are prescribed to reduce blood clots that can cause heart attacks, stroke, or cardiovascular problems.

In recent years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved three new anticoagulants under the brand names Eliquis, Pradaxa, and Xarelto.

Bleeding Risks

Eliquis, Pradaxa, and Xarelto are linked to an increased risk of severe bleeding. Sadly, Eliquis and Xarelto contain no counteracting agents to stop severe bleeding once it begins. This may lead to severe injuries or even death. A look at the histories of each drug reveals:

  • Pradaxa was approved by the FDA in 2010. It is used to reduce stroke risk in patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AFib). The FDA later revealed patients 65 and older on Pradaxa faced a higher risk of gastrointestinal bleeding than patients taking warfarin.
  • Xarelto was approved by the FDA in 2011. It can triple the risk of major bleeding among patients suffering from Acute Coronary Syndrome and double the risk of severe bleeding in patients undergoing hip surgery. Xarelto may also increase the risk of blood clots or stroke.
  • Eliquis—approved later than both Pradaxa and Xarelto—presents many of the same severe bleeding risks. In addition, patients taking Eliquis may suffer an increased risk of blood clots, brain bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, and bleeding in the skull.
