Xarelto is linked to serious side effects, including the potential risk of bleeding. In the first quarter of 2013, the number of reported adverse events associated with Xarelto surpassed Pradaxa, another new oral anticoagulant, which had previously ranked as the No. 1 reported drug for adverse events in 2012. As a result, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration changed its boxed warning on Xarelto in March 2014.
