Can any apixaban takers tell me if you find you need to take apixaban with some food, or if it's gentle enough on your stomach to have with just water? (I know the guidelines say don't need food but is that your experience?) With taking twice a day, I don't really want to have to eat early & late.
I've been on rivaroxaban for 3 months now and in the last week my stomach has started feeling irritated and sore. (I had duodenitis a couple of years ago.) I take it with a main meal. I'm wondering if I should ask my dr if I can swap to Apixaban, or if it's not likely to make any difference? Thanks!
