Eliquis, the brand name of apixaban, is primarily used to lower the risk of a stroke and to treat or prevent blood clots. There are many reasons why your doctor may prescribe you Eliquis. It can be used for people who have atrial fibrillation, which is a heart rhythm disorder to help prevent strokes. Eliquis may also be used to treat blood clots and lower the risk of future blood clots in the legs of people who suffer from deep vein thrombosis or in the lungs for those with pulmonary embolism. Finally it may also be taken over a short period of time to lower the risk of blood clots forming in the legs or lungs of people recovering from hip or knee replacement surgery.
