My husband was on Eliquis for over two years. I watched him go from a outgoing person to someone who just wanted to sit and watch TV.
One Thursday night he couldn't get up and could not move his right leg. By the time I called 911 and he reached the hospital, he was paralyzed on his right side. His mouth was drouping and he could not speak. He suffered an intercranial hemorrhage which could not be reversed. Why would the FDA approve a medicine which there is no way to reverse the bleed once it starts. He passed away that Sunday. I was in shock. It has been almost a year since his death. I told the Dr. I thought Eliquis killed him and his replay was, well lets put it this way, it helps more people than it kills . Not what I wanted to hear.

I am very sorry about what happened. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family.

However, the doctor was correct, it does help more than it harms, which is a prerequisite for FDA approval, unfortunately, all medications carry risks, even over the counter ones that are seemingly innocuous. I am also aware that this doesn't help alleviate your anger, and grief, there is nothing I can say that will do that.

Unfortunately, some people do not respond to other blood thinners, and they have to take something like this, which has no remedy if bleeding occurs.

Why was it prescribed for him?
