Georgia Says:

Four months ago, I was found to have pulmonary embolisms in all segmental and subsegmental lobes of my right lung and my upper left lung. There was no known cause; all ultrasounds were negative as was all blood work associated with PE. My EKG was normal. My blood pressure is 120/70. I have been taking Eliquis since. I would like to quit taking Eliquis since no one can figure out what caused these and there seems to be nothing else wrong with me. So how do I taper off this drug?

Hello, Georgia! How are you?

I'm not sure if you understand the gravity of this situation, pulmonary embolisms can be deadly, if left untreated and, once someone has experienced one or more of them, they can be very prone to experiencing more. Thus, it is best to continue the medications, as long as your doctor instructs you to do so.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising.

Are you on any other medications? What side effects have you experienced?

Re: DVTFIXED (# 2)

Have you gotten the copay card from the company? Call eloquis and they’ll give you a card which gets it for you for $10
