Hello, my name is Darrell Castle and I’m an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Tennessee and the purpose of this video is to bring you a safety alert about the drug, Xarelto.

Xarelto is a blood thinning drug that is usually prescribed for patients with Atrial Fibrillation – A Fib they call it – for the purpose of preventing strokes and heart attacks. Sometimes when people take Xarelto, they were previously on another blood-thinning drug – perhaps Coumadin – which was a drug used by patients for many many years.

Coumadin required on-going blood monitoring, which Xarelto does not require – that’s one of its supposed advantages. But there is growing evidence that Xarelto is associated with some very deadly side-effects, like uncontrolled and uncontrollable bleeding, unstoppable bleeding, internal bleeding, bleeding in your GI tract and your brain, cerebral vascular events, pulmonary embolism, strokes and things of that nature. All of these are deadly, resulting in hospitalization and even death.

Never, as always, stop taking a prescription drug without talking to your doctor first. Just be careful out there.
