Eliquis (Apixaban)


  • Eliquis is an anticoagulant medication used for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Additionally, it is indicated for the treatment and prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).

Side Effects:

  • Common side effects include bleeding more easily than normal, such as nosebleeds, heavier menstrual periods, bleeding gums, or prolonged bleeding from cuts.

  • Serious side effects may include severe and potentially life-threatening bleeding events, especially in the brain, stomach, or intestines.
  • Other side effects can include nausea, anemia, and allergic reactions.
  • Seek immediate medical attention if symptoms of serious bleeding occur, like unusual bruising, dizziness, or prolonged bleeding.

Doses Available:

  • Eliquis is available in tablet form in dosages of 2.5 mg and 5 mg.

How to Take:

  • The dosage of Eliquis varies depending on the condition being treated, and patient factors such as age, kidney function, and body weight.
  • For stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation, the usual dose is 5 mg taken twice daily. For patients who are older, have kidney problems, or weigh less, the dose may be reduced to 2.5 mg twice daily.

  • For DVT and PE treatment, the initial dose is typically 10 mg taken twice daily for the first 7 days, followed by 5 mg twice daily.
  • Eliquis can be taken with or without food, and should be taken at the same times each day.
  • Do not stop taking Eliquis without consulting your healthcare provider, as this may increase your risk of developing a blood clot.

Additional Information:

  • Inform healthcare providers, including dentists, about your use of Eliquis, especially before undergoing any surgeries or medical/dental procedures.

  • Caution should be exercised in activities that may increase the risk of bleeding or injury.
  • Alcohol and other medications that can enhance bleeding risk should be used cautiously.
  • Always consult your healthcare provider for advice on personalized dosing and management.
