What is Eliquis Used For?

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. There's also an Eliquis generic alternative that can save you even more off the price of your medication in the US.

How does Eliquis work?

Eliquis works by blocking the action of certain clotting proteins in your blood which help blood clots to form. Apixaban is an anticoagulant which is also known as a blood thinner medication which prevents these blood clots.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Eliquis is usually taken twice per day, twelve hours apart. You should always use the correct Eliquis dosage as prescribed by your doctor. Eliquis 5mg and 2.5mg are both available.
  • To get the most benefit from Eliquis, take the medicine regularly at the same time each day. It can be taken with or without food.
  • This medication can either be taken whole or may be crushed and mixed with water or apple juice.
  • If you miss a dose of this medication, take it the same day. If it almost time for your next dosage, skip the missed dose and continue to take your medication at the regular time, twice daily. Do not take two doses at once.
  • You should not stop taking Eliquis unless advised to by a doctor. Stopping suddenly may increase your risk of a stroke or blood clot.
  • Store the medicine in a closed container away from heat, moisture and light. Do not freeze Eliquis.

  • If you have any drug allergies.
  • If you take any other prescription or non-prescription medications.
  • Your medical history, especially if you have previously had liver or kidney disease, bleeding problems, blood disorders, strokes, recent surgery or if you suffer from frequent falls or injuries.

Also be aware that:

  • You may bleed or bruise more easily while taking Eliquis.
  • You should avoid activities which may increase the likelihood of bleeding or injury such as contact sports.
  • Be careful while shaving and brushing your teeth. Try using an electric razor for shaving and a soft toothbrush while brushing teeth.
