Commercial Vs. Reality: What Really Happens On Xarelto

A Made-For-TV Story About Xarelto

Xarelto has been praised as the next-generation blood thinner by several high-profile athletes. In fact, a commercial promoting the drug features 10-time NBA All-Star Chris Bosh, professional golfer Arnold Palmer, NASCAR driver Brian Vickers and comedian Kevin Nealon. In the commercial, Bosh praises Xarelto for being the answer to the blood clots in his lungs that left him sidelined. The four men then meet on the golf course and discuss how Xarelto worked for them and the positive experiences they had with the drug.

What Really Happens

This rosy picture is a far cry from what many other patients experienced while taking Xarelto. Known to cause internal bleeding, Xarelto can have serious and even deadly consequences. To date, more than 3,400 lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer and distributor of Xarelto due to the unstoppable bleeding and deaths.
