Hello, Eve!

Has it been prescribed by the child's doctor?

This is a prescription medication to control blood sugar levels, so it shouldn't be taken if it hasn't been prescribed, especially not by a child.

eliquis caused many badside effects for me...I was in hospitals more than five times with muscle aches, (especially upper back neck and upper arms) extreme bruising , numbeness, confusion,blisters , other drug interactions and fainting. My heart doctor (not believing it was medication at first) took me off and then put me back on ..over 2 years...then gave me smaller doses after TIA etc..bottom line....DONT TAKE IT...

my last faint while driving to my doctor caused a car accident in which 2 people were killed...hit 6 cars...
