Common Side Effects of Eliquis (Apixaban)

Eliquis (apixaban) helps in blocking the activity of blood clotting in the blood due to an irregular heartbeat. Eliquis helps in lowering the risk of getting a stroke due to a blood clot in people with atrial fibrillation which is a disorder of heart rhythm.

In atrial fibrillation, the heart does not beat as it normally should, and because of this, blood clots start to form. These blood clots then travel to other parts of your body and increase the chances of you having a stroke.

This medication can also be used after you’ve recently had knee or hip replacement surgery to prevent deep vein thrombosis (a type of blood clot). This blood clot can also cause blood clotting in the lungs.
