Hello, Roxie! How are you?

According to the side effects details provide by the FDA, those are all common side effects of taking Eliquis and quite a few other people have complained about similar problems. Some have even had to stop taking it.

Other possible side effects may include easy bruising, joint swelling, cough and insomnia.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Verwon Says:

I understand Roxie, but before making a change yourself, please consult your doctor.

You may require something more than Aspirin and there are other medications they can prescribe for you, such as Coumadin, which is a blood thinner that FDA lists as causing side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and increase risk of bleeding.

How are you feeling, now?

I have been on Eliquis for two months: 2.5 twice a day. For the last month my legs have been very sore, and ache at night. This and started having trouble getting up, and felt too weak to go up the stairs, but i could if i made myself do it. I always walked quite often before this started but not enough to get sore. I stopped taking it and told my doctor and he is putting me on warfarin.

I just started eliquis 2weeks ago due to insistence of my cardiologist. 5 mg twice a day. The last few days I have been having leg cramps and I never have them. Also I was having a pedicure and when I moved my leg a certain way I had s cramp in my thigh. At night the cramps are in the calves. Anyone else have these?

I too take Eliquis for about 7 months now. The bottom of my feet hurt like they have stone bruise and the joints in my hands hurt more and more every day. Never had these symptoms before. I am 50 years old and am almost crippled. Getting up and walking around is a chore. Thanks for all the post. I am looking to see my doc again soon.

Re: Toby (# 10)

Has the joint pain ceased after you stop the Eliquis?

I have hair loss, leg cramps, itching of scalp and face, fatigue, weakness in legs, burning on soles of feet, head pain, lower back pain to name a few. I want to go down to 2.5, twice a day, but my doc says no. I'll have to split the 5 mg.

Re: George (# 11)

I had a blood clot in Dec 2017 in lower right leg. Put on Eliquis. Started experiencing side effects within weeks. Very dry mouth and felt the back of my throat closing in. After several months started feeling soreness in all muscles and joints. My lower right leg would swell every day. I stopped taking Eliquis four months later. Most of the side effects have gone with the exception of sore muscles in forearms and upper arms. Have extreme tiredness. Is anyone experiencing this even after stopping the drug Eliquis?

Re: Jeanne (# 14)

You say you got off Eliquis. Feel good. Did you start another blood thinner? I am on Eliquis nearly two years. Feel awful. Want off of it.

Re: Anne (# 15)

Anne, I just read your post. I hope you are still on this board.
Have you stopped Eliquis? If so, what did you replace it with? I’ve had all the side-effects listed. I woke up this morning with my legs hurting SO bad! I want to get off this medication but I’m so scared it will cause me to have a stroke.

Re: Mila (# 19)

I just got off of Eliquis. A woman pharmacist from a private pharmacy-one that compounds prescriptions and is very well regarded-told me that she had researched the issue for her mother and concluded Warfarin to be the safest blood thinner. I took my first one today. I am hoping the nausea I have lived with for two years will abate. Maybe it already has. I do not want to know about any side affects of Warfarin. Just hoping I feel better. My cardiologist sent me to a psychiatrist because I could not sleep after receiving pacemaker. I have been on Eliquis since before getting the Pacemaker when Afib showed up. I am hoping somehow I can now sleep. It has been two of worst years leaving me truly an anxious and changed person. I did not like antidepressant side effects but may consider trying them again since I have not returned to my former self-still anxious and sleeping very poorly. Hope some of this helps you. I am 75. Let me know if you want more information.
