Comment:
Have used Eliquis for 1 year with no problems. Taking 5mg AM and 5mg PM, at same times every day. Also, I make sure I eat before or after taking Eliquis. I also take 6.25mg Carvepen AM and PM. I have blood type O and follow the D'Adamo blood type diet which means no dairy and no coffee which used to cause me lots of digestive problems.

I started burping, chest pains, stomach cramping. I would burp for 3 to 4 hours without stopping. After 3 days off meds burping almost stopped completely.

I can only take half of the normal dose due to nausea. Even on a half dose, I have nausea and great retention of water. I have gained 25 lbs. in the 16 months on this drug. Water retention is a big problem.
