Eliquis (Apixaban)

(℞) Prescription Required

    Eliquis is an oral anticoagulation prescription medication used to prevent strokes and blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation, a condition characterized by an irregular heartbeat.

    This medicine is also given to treat or reduce the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT; a blood clot that usually develops in the leg) and pulmonary embolism (PE; a blood clot in the lung).

    In addition, Eliquis may be prescribed after hip or knee replacement surgery to help prevent DVT or PE.

    However, despite being a life-saving medicine, Eliquis is not immune to the costly price increases typical of name-brand prescription medications. 

    Fortunately, there are a few ways you can offset these price hikes and save money with an online Canadian pharmacy.
