Xarelto, also known as rivaroxaban, is an anticoagulant drug that was approved by the FDA in 2011.  As a blood thinner, Xarelto is used to lower the chances of one getting blood clots.  While manufactured by the Germany-based Bayer AG,  Xarelto has been marketed by the United States-based Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  This blood thinner was promoted as being better and superior to other blood thinners, such as Coumadin.  However, there have been several reports stating Xarelto is unsafe due to the bleeding risks and no antidote.
