Comment:
My healthy 86 year old father suffered a brain bleed stroke after 6 months on Eliquis, which is a possible side effect of this drug. Note only FDA approved for less than 2 years! Heavy marketing on ease of use over other thinners, but at what cost? Now he can take no thinners and 5 times more likely to have another stroke.

Began taking Eliquis in May 2014in prep for Cryoablation to correct A-Fib. The procedure worked, no more A-Fib. Need to take the drug 2 more months. Only side effect has been extreme tiredness.

Developed involuntary twitching in arms, hands and elsewhere in body. Doctor said this was a side effect of Eliquis. Switched to Warfarin and twitches have subsided.

Comment:
Was taken off Xarelto by GP because of dreadful muscle and joint pain ( I have arthritis) and put on Warfarin. At a follow-up app't in April with neurologist after TIA last fall, he wanted me off Warfarin and on to Eliquis. I have been on it a month with NO side effects! wonderful!
