What are the side effects of Xarelto?

Good evening. I am currently taking Xarelto and I see that there is a class action lawsuit. Are they going to recall this drug? My concern is that I was on Coumadin/Warfarin since 2005 and only recently started taking Xarelto in 2012. What are the signs/complications that I should be looking for in relation to this drug?

Hi,
thanks for contacting HCM, Xarelto is anticoagulant. Most commonly side effects seen during xarelto use are shortness of breathing, hives, swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. U have to call doctor or contact to doctor if u experienced easy bruising or bleeding like nosebleeds, bleeding gums, heavy menstrual bleeding. U might be experienced headache, dizziness and weakness.
