Folks who have problems are quick to get on a site like this one. I would like to hear from some folks who have not had any problems and are satisfied with the medicine. Also, what % of folks have serious side effects.

I would like to hear from folks who have had a relatively side effect free experience with Eliquis. The only folks who get on sites like this are those who have a complaint. Isn't their anyone out there who had a terrible free or close to trouble free experience?

In my experience I think Marty is right about how most users who have a positive experience with meds tend to not feel the need to post, unless it's a unique situation; but when someone has a bad side effect they might be more inclined to go on the internet and see if anyone else has had a similar reaction that they can relate to... Seems to be a part of human nature if you ask me...

One thing that I do feel is important to understand though, is how each individual may react/respond differently due to things like body chemistry, age, weight, diet, dosage, and other personal factors that can influence a person's biochemistry... not only from a physical standpoint but also energetically, as we are all made up of energy.

So as to what percentage of patients experience serious side effects, I'm not sure an accurate answer could be given (namely for the reasons mentioned above) unless it's bound to a smaller select group of people who post on sites like this.

I really didn't have much of a problem on Eliquis. I did have some hair loss, but wouldn't have stopped the meds for that. Doctor decided clot was better and baby aspirin was safer. I felt absolutely fine while taking the Eliquis. I understand only a small fraction of people have hair loss from this med.

I was on warfarin for about ten years (with two breaks - took clexane both times, once while I was pregnant and breastfeeding), then on to rivaroxaban, then to apixaban. I feel better being off the warfarin and have had only a few side effects with the apixaban (Eliquis) - some nausea (which is tolerable) and insomnia/sleeping issues. They are tolerable as I feel much better, overall, than I did on the warfarin. I am happy with it - and hey, its keeping me alive too, so you know….bonus :)

My husband is having mental confusion, on Eliquis, so I did want to know if others were having this problem. I love him so, if it is this drug it not for him. He now very tried and repeating himself, which he never did before. I am scare it could become permanent. It was not list as a side effect. Nor was the pain he now has.

I've been on Eliquis for two months, 5mg x2 daily. When I was initially taking 10mg 2x daily I felt a little anxiety after taking it but it would dissipate over time. Now I don't feel any of that and have been essentially side effect free.

That said, I do hope a side effect is increased fatigue because I need an excuse for my wimpiness on my bike. :-)

I'm a 52 year old active wife/mom/grandma runner. I've been on Eliquis 5mg 2x's daily since March of this year, when I was diagnosed w/multiple bilateral pulmonary embolisms. My PE's were a result of being on the birth control pill since January of this year (just 3 months). Being 52 and on the pill is a high risk. Not a well thought out plan obviously. LOL. Luckily, I've had no side effects to speak of. The extra 7 pounds I'm carrying around the past 4 months is due to basically no real exercise, and my love for food. My husband is so worried I'll get injured and bleed out that I've had to stop all activity except housekeeping. Good thing I'm a 'Domestic Goddess.' (still have my humor!). I met w/my Hematologist this week, and will stop Eliquis in 6 days. Three months early. I should be overjoyed....but instead I'm a little paranoid to come off of the thinners. Unexplainable.....I thought 6 months of thinners was going to take an eternity to reach. For my rare situation, 3-6 months is the recommendation. I did request an EKG and scan of my lungs to be sure the PE's are gone. I'll also have blood work every 6 weeks for the duration of the year as a safety check and peace of mind.

Hi.! I hope I give you some hope more then discourage. 2011 my first p.e.. They thought I was going to drown to death from my own blood uncountable clots in both lungs. Fast forward to may 2016 , now 2 p.e. and 3 dvts later. Bcuz of continued prescribed testosterone and hcg. I am 56yo white male that was 52 and ripped. So much I could share. So, find out if you have any types of hereditary/ genetic disorders. My labs were about 12k$ in theirself. Also realize and learn about thrombectomy procedure in case a dvt occurs. A vascular surgeon I was just informed and I missed the window, only has 14 days for this procedure to possibly work from discovery. And even then it depends on the clot and location. A vascular surgeon needs immediate assignment to any one with a new clot discovery. This vascular surgeon also needs to know about thrombectomy or move on to another with out hesitation. I repeat move on immediately. Actually you should now get this all in order before and hopefully not that this happens again to you. I now have my great saphenous vein completely blocked with scar tissue in 2 areas and my popletial vein is acluded and I hope blood starts going thru to help dissolve it. Do not trust drs or hospitals/ university's. You must handle this and be a complete babysitter at times if this doesnt happen. You must make sure any referrals are done by calling to make sure the referral was received. You must make sure you have a experienced v.s. that performs thrombectomy procedures in place just in case.. Start wearing compression stockings when traveling. DO NOT TAKE THIS LIGHTLY AT ALL. Your life is dependent upon your awareness and planning in case this happens again. Best to you. P.S. the blood thinners have failed obviously but now off hormones so they and me hope this stops now. But my leg has not enjoyed all of this.

Male, age 77. Eliquis for two years...no major problems. Lower energy level and diminished strength, but that is probably due to my age.
