Sam Says:


The neck stiffness started while on Xarelto. After switching to Eliquis is the pain spread throughout my body. Into my back, my hips, my legs, the back of my knees, just throughout my whole body. I cannot sleep at night nor can I hardly move during the day. I am desperately looking for an alternative to any of these blood thinners. it seems like no one can really give me the correct combinations off supplements. I am open for any suggestions. thank you so very much!

Hello, Sam! How are you?

There really is no combination of supplements that can be guaranteed to work. Some are known to cause blood thinning, but no testing has been done to show that they are as effective as actual drugs used for that purpose.

Have you ever tried Warfarin/Coumadin? Many people manage to take it, without suffering such extreme side effects, but it does require more frequent INR testing.

Warfarin is what I'm taking, if you haven't tried it, maybe it would work for you also. The worse thing I've noticed is a crawly feeling in my legs that happens about 30 minutes after I take it, but only lasts a short time, weird? And I get cold easy, but that may be with all blood thinners, I've had no experience with any others, so don't know.

Thank you so much for your reply. I guess Warfarin would be my next option. Urghhhhh, I just wanted to be free of pharmaceutical drugs. Sigh

I just ran across your post. I'm new to this drug and have been feeling worse since taking it but didn't know why! I was actually wondering about able swelling but saw yours about your neck pain and increased back pain. I've actually had a very severe increase in my back pain and my neck hasn't bothered me in years like this I didn't know it could be related to this drug! I was just recently diagnosed with a fib and put on eliquis and have had headaches and able swelling but didn't know about these other effects. I wish there was another safer alternative.

I started on Warfarin but had such leg pains I asked to switch to something else. Also, per my doctor on Warfarin my blood clots had not gone away. Late April I will be taking a doplar test to determine whether or not the blood clots are gone. Hoping for the best. Eliquis has not caused me much discomfort yet.

I have been on Eliquis for over a year. A month after I started taking it, I also started having back and neck pain which I haven't had trouble with my back in over 15 years and never neck pain. Also I have a constant burning in my skin that makes me feel like I am on fire 24/7. I take gabapentin, but it puts me to sleep. I am also always tired have gained 15 pounds in that year and am very depressed. My doctor says it is not from the eliquis but I am not on any other new meds. They already tried me on xralto but I had side effects from that. Can anyone relate to the burning or weight gain problems?

I was experiencing chest pain and breathlessness and the doctors told me it had nothing to do with Xarelto, yet it is listed as an emergency listed side effect. From what I have read of your comment, Xarelto causes your side effects as well..
My chest pain has ceased as my GP changed me over to Pradaxa, no more chest pains 1 - 2 hours after taking Pradaxa, my leg and muscle pain seems to be clearing up and also the tired fatigued feeling seems to be slowly disappearing.

Re: hiratio (# 13)

Not true! I get the breathlessness as well. And all sorts of pain everywhere else. I try to ignore them. But I think they just tell is its not the Xarelto because they are afraid to take us off it.
