Just got out of the hospital for PE after 36 hours on a heparin drip, and with my first dose of eliquis nearly immediately had a migraine. Took tylenol and sumatripatin (i'm prone to migraines) but no relief until i finally fell. asleep. woke up, took my next dose of eliquis (10 mg), immediate return of headache plus bonus! heart started racing, too. Can I expect these side effects to diminish? After a week, i'm supposed to reduce the dose to 5 mg/2 day

Hello HeadacheCity,

Sorry to hear that you are having troubles with your medication.

According to the Eliquis website it states right on the medication package that you should immediate contact your doctor if you start having migraines or dizziness shortly after taking the medication. It is likely you are having a negative reaction to the Eliquis. Below I provided the link to the page where I found this information.

[1] Eliquis

I'm not sure if this is something that would go away when you dropped the dosage down, it would be something you need to discuss with your primary care physician.

I hope this information helps. Have a wonderful day.
