Picked up my first packs of Eliquis (Apixaban) today so will be starting them in the next couple of days once my warfarin INR is south of 2.0 (but only just!!). Quite exciting to think of all that lovely spinach and brocolli I can now enjoy without a care and no more trips to the hospital for blood tests....fantastic! Thought I'd better change my avatar too.
One question please and the real reason for this post, directed at those on Apixaban. I'm sure I read somewhere that none of the NOACs could be stored in pill boxes - they had to remain in their blister packs until taken. However the leaflet with my box of Eliquis clearly states that "This medicine does not require any special storage conditions".
Is apixaban different in this respect.......do others use pill boxes?
