Why Eliquis is prescribed? 

Patients with an irregular heartbeat are more prone to develop serious blood clots. Since part of their heart does not beat in a normal way; it leads to the formation of blood clots in the lungs and legs. Also, they are more at risk of getting a stroke.

Also, this medication is very helpful in treating deep vein thrombosis-DVT and pulmonary embolism.

How to consume Eliquis?

What if I miss the dose of medicine?
