Eliquis is an oral medication indicated to lower the risk of strokes and systemic embolisms in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. It is also indicated to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) that could lead to pulmonary embolism for patients who went through hip or knee replacement surgery.
This is available in Eliquis 5 mg and Eliquis 2.5 mg tablets.
How does Eliquis work?
This factor Xa inhibitor works by hampering free, clot-bound FXa and prothrombinase activity. This drug cannot directly affect platelet aggregation but may inhibit platelet aggregation induced by thrombin. Generally, this could block certain proteins in the blood that cause coagulation.
