What is Eliquis prescribed for?
Eliquis is used to treat or prevent deep vein thrombosis, a condition in which harmful blood clots form in the blood vessels of the legs. These blood clots can travel to the lungs and can become lodged in the blood vessels of the lungs, causing a condition called pulmonary embolism. Eliquis is used for several days after hip or knee replacement surgery while you are unable to walk. Due to the immobility, the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism is increased. During this time, blood clots are most likely to form due to slowed blood flow. This medication is also used to lower the risk of stroke or a blood clot in people with a heart rhythm disorder called atrial fibrillation.
