Eliquis (apixaban) from Canada

Eliquis (apixaban) is a medication that helps prevent blood clots. It's often prescribed to adults who have had hip or knee replacement surgery, have a condition called atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat), or have had blood clots in their veins or lungs.

How Eliquis Works

Eliquis works by thinning your blood. This helps prevent blood clots from forming in your veins, which can lead to serious conditions like stroke or pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lungs).

Available Strengths of Eliquis

Eliquis comes in two strengths:

  • 2.5 mg tablets
  • 5 mg tablets

Your doctor will prescribe the right strength of Eliquis for your condition.

Who Should Take Eliquis?

Hip or Knee Surgery: If you've had hip or knee replacement surgery, Eliquis can help prevent blood clots from forming during your recovery.

Atrial Fibrillation: If you have atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat), Eliquis can help prevent stroke.

Blood Clots: If you've had deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE), Eliquis can treat these conditions and help prevent them from happening again.

Who Should Not Take Eliquis?

You should not take Eliquis if you have:

  • Active bleeding or conditions that increase your risk of bleeding, such as recent brain or stomach ulcers.
  • Severe liver disease.
  • If you are taking certain medications that interact with Eliquis, like ketoconazole or ritonavir.
  • If you are allergic to apixaban or any of its ingredients.

Possible Side Effects for Eliquis

Like all medications, Eliquis can cause side effects. The most common ones include:

Bleeding: Since Eliquis thins your blood, it can increase your risk of bleeding. Watch for signs of unusual bleeding, such as blood in your urine or stools, or unusual bruising.

Anemia: Some people may experience anemia, which can make you feel tired or weak.

What to Do If You Miss a Dose

If you miss a dose of Eliquis, take it as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses at the same time.

Taking Eliquis with Other Medications

Eliquis can interact with other medications, so make sure to tell your doctor about all the medicines you're taking, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements. Be especially cautious with:

  • NSAIDs (like ibuprofen)
  • Other blood thinners
  • Antidepressants like SSRIs and SNRIs

Important Safety Information for Eliquis

Surgery and Procedures: If you need surgery or a medical procedure, you might need to stop taking Eliquis temporarily. Your doctor will give you specific instructions.

Monitoring: Your doctor may do regular blood tests to check your kidney function and ensure Eliquis is working properly.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Eliquis is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Discuss your options with your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.

How to Take Eliquis

Take Eliquis exactly as your doctor prescribes. It can be taken with or without food. If you have trouble swallowing the tablets, they can be crushed and mixed with water or applesauce.
