Studies Demonstrate Negative Effects of Once Daily Use
The pharmaceutical industry is once again facing claims that it prioritized business interests and profits over patient health, and this time, the prescription blood-thinning medication Xarelto is the drug bearing the brunt of the scrutiny. According to Forbes, one of the key points made by attorneys for plaintiffs who have filed suit against the drug’s makers, Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, is that the drug was marketed for once-a-day use when it is far safer when taken twice daily.
Drugs are easier to market to patients, argue plaintiffs’ attorneys, when they only must be taken once daily. However, two studies involving Xarelto showed taking the drug only once negatively affected its efficacy while increasing a patient’s risk of gastrointestinal and intracranial bleeding. Additional concerns surrounding the strength and validity of Xarelto’s clinical trials were raised by an article published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Among those mentioned were a lack of evidence about expected dose response and a considerable amount of missing data, the website reported.
How a Kansas Xarelto Lawyer Can Help
Drug makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
